Hour of Code
GCISD K-8th grade teachers are invited to participate in Hour of Code during the week of December 8-12.
Why?: There will be 1,000,000 more computer science jobs than computer science students by 2020. http://code.org/stats Based on Code.org’s Hour of Code, teachers will choose from a variety of resources and tutorials that expose students to foundational concepts of computer science. Computer programming allows students to practice perseverance, problem solving, and critical thinking.
