Looking for a way to participate in the Hour of Code during Computer Science Education week (December 8-14)? We’ve got you covered with a full-fledged coding curriculum you can do with your students.
Created by teacher Alexandra Vlachakis and student Ty Simpson of Sandy Creek High School in Georgia and hosted on Vocareum <codeLMS>, an online coding management system that is integrated with Edmodo, the curriculum consists of three simple assignments:
- Hello World – Your very first Java program, but with a twist
- Transforming Images – Build your very own Instagram
- Create Your Very Own Flag – Build your own Hour of Code flag
You can access this curriculum using your existing Edmodo username and password, making it even easier to get your students involved!
