The Hour of Code is coming!

The Hour of Code is coming!

December 5-11, 2016

Are you ready to do it again? Because of your students and your stories, the Hour of Code movement keeps changing the world. We hope you’ll join other teachers in the GUHSD to make this year a turning point for computer science in our schools. If you’ve participated in the Hour of Code before, please know that there are new modules on the tutorials page, like Disney’s Moana and Code Combat.

Sign up now to host an Hour of Code during Dec. 5-11 at https://hourofcode.com.
Registering your participation will add your event to the map of over 110,188 events being held globally for the Hour of Code Week.  

Here’s a handout you can share with your students so they know what to expect.

History of the Hour of Code
The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2016 Computer Science Education Week will be December 5-11, but you can host an Hour of Code all year round. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

Pick a date. Share the tutorials. Let your students learn to code! The Digital Learning Coaches (DLCs) would be happy to come out and assist with this if you’d like.
