I'm so excited that so many Vermont Schools are participating in Hour of
Code.

According to Hour of Code site  there are over 40 Vermont classrooms
participating.

Connected Voices has set up a WAY that all our Vermont Schools can share
what they are doing by sending pictures, link, screenshots, descriptions to
a common gallery
that we are calling Think About Code Vermont!

We are field testing the directions right now, but I thought I'd give you a
sneak preview of what it will look like.

go to www.ConnectedVoices.org  and click on Think About Code Vermont link

Not only have we set up a place  where Vermont educators will be able to
add to the gallery,  we have made Hour of Code the focus of our monthly
Think About it Thursday prompts - where 4 Vermont educators share a new
'challenge'  for Vermont schools to participate on the first Thursday of
each month.

So this Thursday,  there will be 4  new challenges all focused on Hour of
Code released
- Early Elementary Challenge  hosted by Phyllis Tate
- Upper Elementary Challenge hosted by Matt Allen
- Middle School Challenge hosted by Eli Rosenberg
- High School Challenge hosted by Charlie MacFayden


I thought I'd send a sneak preview of what's coming, and will send out the
official directions for you to send your teachers who are participating or
WANT to participate in Hour of Code to contribute to the  Think About Code
Vermont gallery!

I'm so excited.
Stay tune for an update later this week from Connected Voices

Go Vermont!
