In our K-5 Technology class, students will learn how to use multiple applications and devices which will assist them in their educational career. We prepare our students for the future by providing lessons in Computer Programming, Digital Media, as well as, Digital Citizenship. Our goal is to provide each student with a hands on experience to enable them to succeed in the digital society.
Hour of Code
Students in grades 1st though 5th will participate in the Hour of Code. The goal for 2015 is to have over 10 million students from across the country participate in Computer Programming activities. Students will program tree lighting displays for the White House, as well as, game creation using sites like Code.org.
Resources we use for the "Hour of Code" included:
- Tynker- is an online platform that teaches students how to code through the activities which include games and stories. Students learn the fundamentals of programming and design through Tynker's block based visual programming language.
- Code.org- a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science.
