As MAP testing came to a completion yesterday, all Marie Murphy students had the opportunity to be a part of “Hour of Code” activities. Hour of Code is a global initiative designed to be a one-hour introduction to computer science. The goal is to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. For more information about the specifics of this program, visit http://hourofcode.com/us
Marie Murphy Technology Integration Specialist Ms. Lane provided the instructions, expertise and assistance for students 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students working individually and collaboratively on a variety of coding activities. Students had the opportunity to engage in activities from the official Hour of Code site, Made With Code by Google, Kahn Academy Hour of Code, and Scratch. Students who want to continue to learn about coding can work with Ms. Lane this Friday at lunch or can speak to Mr. Gravagna about Get Techy Club.
