In Celebration of Computer Science Week

This week, Dianne Pappafotopoulos and I collaborated on the “Hour of Code” challenge with students in our Ed. Tech classes. Students enrolled in Introduction to Computers, Web Design, and Visual Basic Programming all took part in this challenge. Using the JavaScript tutorial located at http://www.codecademy.com/ , students worked though the lessons (at their own pace) earning points and badges while building their knowlege of programming. Students recorded their scores on the Class Share spreadsheet .  

Students in the Visual Basic class prevailed (only by a few points Mrs. P) over their competitors. With 56 students participating in this event - for 2 days - our DSHS students logged in 112 hours in celebration of Computer Science Week.  Way to go everyone!!
