Alright, so when we talked about coding last week in class – I’m not going to lie I initially was freaked right out! How… Whaa…. Bahhh…. Buuuuut I have learned that its actually not the worst thing invented. I got interested in playing this sweet Frozen game and it was not too bad. They even give you congratulations when you do something good! Makes you feel all sorts of special!
Look at that nice congratulation document! All in all this coding game was quite enjoyable. As I weaved my way through puzzles, I actually found that I was enjoying myself.
I tweeted this article out that I thought was extremely interesting.
I was curious as to how this occurred. After reading through the article I came to have a great deal of respect for Gupta and what he is working on. This first quote I enjoyed.
Basically he has created a way to incorporate the use of robots in the classroom. Seriously read the article, it may be a lot easier than you originally thought.
The point of this post – you can include code into your elementary school teaching! Do not be afraid!!
