Made With Code - Code the Holidays

Made With Code is a Google initiative to champion creativity, girls, and computer coding, all at once, but the projects on this page would be great for any student who is interested in computer coding and the way is it used in the real world. By changing a few code settings, students can build a snowflake, design a Christmas tree light show for the White House, compose a soundtrack and more. Cool!

About Me

This is my first year as the Technology Integration Specialist at Southwest Christian School, Elementary Campus. My goal is to spread the word about all the amazing technology available for our teachers to use in the classroom. God called us to be educators. I believe we should do our best to make learning fun and relevant for our students. Education incorporating the use of technology is just one of the ways we can engage and challenge our students as they become 21st century learners.
