Tomorrow we try our Hour Of Code. There could be tech trouble. There will be confusion. We may need a back-up plan. There will be, however, collaboration to solve the problems. Because we are persistent; we don’t give up. We have a mindset of “I can.”
Watch this CBS interview in an Hour of Code Classroom to see what Hadi Partovi says:
There’s so much noise in the eduverse about transforming education so students are “college and career ready.” The students need to be prepared for their future — and that means an understanding of the workings of the devices and apps they use daily: computer science — code. Just one thing could do it: allow our students to be makers in the world; coders of the future.
So tomorrow, we take our first step in our middle school. We have a mindset of curiosity. We’re anxious, and expectant. We’re unsure, and hopeful. We’re confused, but open. We. Are. Ready. We — a class together, and a learning community.
How about you?
