Hour of Code

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching
tens of millions of students in 180+ countries.
Think about these ideas when planning Hour of Code activities:
  • Work in pairs. Research shows students learn best with pair programming, sharing a computer and working together. Encourage your students to double up.

  • Use a projected screen. If you have a projector and screen for a Web-connected computer, your entire group can do an Hour of Code together. Watch video portions together and take turns solving puzzles or answering questions.

  • Go unplugged. Check out tutorials that require no computer
