Learning to Code

IMG_5350On Saturday I attended a workshop on how to teach computer science to elementary students.  I have to say it was probably the best training I have EVER had.  Really.  Mike Gargiulo, computer teacher at Elliott Ranch Elementary, took us through a day full of hands-on learning with code.org.  I am very excited to get this curriculum started with my students in class.  The best part is students can work on these puzzles on ANY device and it’s FREE.  Just bookmark the link that I will email you and have your child click on their name and their secret picture to get started.  If you are not sure why this is a good idea,  just poke around the code.org website a little while and you will soon have plenty information to support this endeavor.  I’ll share more as soon as we get started in class. 😀
