Hour of Code

This week SATEC participated in the Hour of Code in celebration  of Computer Science in Education Week. While the younger students learned about giving step-by-step directions to achieve their goal on the iPads using Bee Bot, The Foos and the Daisy the Dinosaur apps, older students got to try websites like:
www.code.org
www.codecombat.com
www.playcodemonkey.com
www.madewithcode.com
All of these apps and resources are free to download and use!

It was a wonderful chance for all students throughout our SATEC community to share the focus of examining the role of technology in their daily lives and consider learning how to program and control that technology themselves.
