Join the largest learning event in history- The Hour of Code! I urge all K-12 teachers to participate this week and beyond! What is The Hour of Code? This event teaches educators and students the basics of computer programming in 60 minutes while having fun! Plus, it is very simple. Code.org launched this event in the United States with the goal of introducing coding into the US curriculum and raising awareness about the importance of coding and computer science.
Are you having some coding fun this week? Share pics with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet with the hastags #CLVedtech, #ROedtech, or #clawsonedtech!
