Independence Elementary: December, 2015

The Hour of Code 2015 - WORLDWIDE

Computer Coding: Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.


We will begin our coding journey in the GT classroom this week. We have a variety of applications, activities, and websites that the kiddos will use to increase their knowledge. They will continue to work on computer coding skills in the GT classroom till our Winter Break.


If you have any questions about coding, please do not hesitate to email me and ask!


Let the coding begin!

I created a Shutterfly account for the Independence Excel Scholars. I will place all of the photos of any Independence GT related activity in that account.

I would like to keep the photos private, so you will have to join the group and then I'll confirm your membership. You will be able to see them once your membership is confirmed.


If you have any questions about Shutterfly, please let me know.
