Hour of Code

Capture

 

I asked my Year 10 students to undertake the “Hour of Code” tutorial for Beginners. Not that they are beginners, they have been using Scratch the last few weeks. But it did serve three advantages:

  1. They got to have  a break from Scratch.
  2. They got to experience a slightly different programming “language” Google Blockly
  3. With the review code option they got to see the Javascript code generated from Blockly.

And it was quite fun. A few of the students even printed of the Completion certificate. I have sent the link to my wife to try it out in a Primary school perhaps they can undertake the formal Hour of Code scheduled for December 2014.
