Today’s the final day for our second session of Learn to Code this spring.
We’ve had two sessions of 10 kids each, with a variety of programming backgrounds, and ages from 7-12.
I’ll have a longer write-up on the class and the future of The Code Hub, but the quick take is that it’s been a blast. The combo of Apple’s Everyone Can Code curriculum with some of my own and a healthy dose of offline activities has worked well. The Mounttown Community Facility has been an amazing venue to host the classes.
My co-panelists and our moderator all had fascinating takes on the topic of being a digital citizen in the context of education and what it meant to each of them. I loved getting the perspective of a secondary school student, third level student (who ran that morning’s CoderDojo session), and a secondary school teacher who loves connecting schools from different locales, thanks to our digital connections.
