Computer Science Education Week!

December 7 - 13

What it is...

Next week (December 7-13) is Computer Science Education Week. This is a nationally recognized week that encourages students to engage in "all things technology", and supports our GMA commitment to providing a 21st century education for our students. It is also an opportunity for everyone (students and teachers!) to participate in the Hour of Code initiative, the world's largest learning event in history.
The Hour of Code is here

What we are doing about it...

As you are planning for next week (Wednesday - Friday), please find a way to deliberately incorporate the Hour of Code into your curriculum. This can be done through your interactive whiteboard, on the laptops, Surface Pros, iPads, etc.
