Getting Students Started with Coding
How to implement:
1. A Getting Started section
*An activity lasts for about 35-45 minutes, or just choose to do the main activity, which usually lasts for 20-25 minutes.
Method of Instruction
CONCEPTUAL CHUNKS: The unplugged lessons and online puzzle tutorials are chunked together by shared concepts, where the unplugged lesson serves as a fun and gentle introduction to a computing concept that is further explored through coding exercises. This allows courses to be separated into chunks of lessons that can be taught within a time period, like a week, as a sub-unit.
Teacher Home Page: http://code.org/teacher-dashboard#/ Create a Section - Teachers will need to create a class (section) and then they can add students. Log in cards can be printed to help students remember their password or image (for younger students).
General student log in if not in a class: http://code.org/ but after you create a section (class), the teacher will be provided with a url link that students can use to go directly to their section.
