JUST FOR TEACHERS
What devices should I use for my students?
Code.org tutorials work on all devices and browsers. You can see more information about Code.org's tutorial tech needs here. Tech needs for non-Code.org tutorials can be found on code.org/learn in the tutorial specific description. Don't forget we also offer unplugged activities if your school can't accommodate the tutorials!
Do I need computers for every participant?
Here are a few options:
- Work in pairs. Research shows students learn best with pair programming, sharing a computer and working together. Encourage your students to double up.
- Use a projected screen. If you have a projector and screen for a Web-connected computer, your entire group can do an Hour of Code together. Watch video portions together and take turns solving puzzles or answering questions.
- Go unplugged. We offer tutorials that require no computer at all.
CALLING ALL TEACHERS WORLDWIDE!
Do students need to log on using an account?
Which activity should I do with high school students?
I am doing Scratch for Hour of Code, but what if my students have iPads rather than laptops?
