Hour of Code--December 2016

Student Resources @yourPSMSLibrary--Work from top to bottom.

Hour of Code is upon us once again, South Middle!

It is important that 21st century learners have 21st century skills. Coding is one of these skills. There are SO many free resources that can help each of us learn to code. Don't be afraid. Jump in, and learn. Let's make Hour of Code last throughout the school year. Start by watching the video below ;-)

Programming is magic. It's the ability to create things from pure imagination. We started CodeCombat to give learners the feeling of wizardly power at their fingertips by using typed code.

As it turns out, that enables them to learn faster too. WAY faster. It's like having a conversation instead of reading a manual. We want to bring that conversation to every school and to every student, because everyone should have the chance to learn the magic of programming.
