Five Tech Things on a Friday v.7

December 9-15 is Computer Science Education Week so this week's Five Tech Things on a Friday is all about celebrating Computer Science Education!

  • First, check out this video on the superpower that 90% of our schools don't teach: code.

  • Next, take a look at these statistics about computer science in Illinois, then learn what you can do to support and improve K-12 computer science in Illinois
  • Now, challenge yourself to learn an hour of code.  It's easier than you think!

  • Now that you've gotten an hour of code under your belt, why not get your students to do the same!  Start with one hour and then move beyond!
  • Oh, you don't have computers?  The internet is down?  You can still help your students learn about code!  Check out these great "unplugged" coding lessons here and here.
