We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
Our Hour of Code is a statement that Glinsk NS is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. We will be taking part in this year and learning more about coding and computer programming using fun but educational tools, software and apps including Scratch, Scratchjr, Lightbot, Kodable, Cargobot, Star Wars, Building a Galaxy With Code, Frozen; Code with Anna and Elsa, Artist, Clasic maze and even Minecraft.
This is a chance to change the future of education in Glinsk NS. Read more information here.
