The Hour of Code was a Huge Success
We had a great week of computer programming during our HOUR OF CODE week. Every class from Kindergarten through 5th grade participated and cumulatively our CMIT Elementary students wrote 30,000+ lines of code! What a great opportunity to learn computer science, see the code behind computer applications, and understand why these are important skills for the 21st century learner! Despite a few technology snags earlier in the week due to the high volume of participants worldwide for this 2nd annual Hour of Code, the overwhelming positive response was undeniable.
Quotes heard this week:
"YES! I finally did it!"
"86 lines of code! Come and see this!"
Many students have asked about access at home with some of the activities.
Here is what CMIT Elementary students will do to improve their coding skills.
