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.
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
