As a part of our commitment to increasing students in juvenile justice settings exposure to technology and 21st Century skills, we encourage teachers to participate in the worldwide Hour of Code week that runs in December of each year. The Hour of Code, organized by Code.org, introduces students of all ages and grade levels to computer science by having them complete an hour-long coding activity.
The hour-long modules are accessible and highly engaging, and can be taught by teachers who themselves don’t know much (if anything) about computer programming. Visit Code.org to try the free modules. Teachers who participate will have a support team in place to help them access, roll out, and teach the Hour of Code.
