Learning to Code in Technology Class
Submitted by: Rachel Leffler
All of the Elementary Technology classes, kindergarten through 4th grade, have been learning about computer programming this month. Students have been using programs from “Hour of Code” to learn what it is like to program a video game. They have had to use math, reading, problem solving, and perseverance to work through all of the challenges in the programs. They also learned cooperation by sharing a computer and coding with a partner. This has been one of the favorite activities in technology class.
Shown are 4th grade students working on building a Star Wars game. Most of them chose to “Pair Code” with a partner.
