Over the course of this week, BHS Help Desk students have been busy completing various Hour of Code tutorials. Each student has had the opportunity to select a tutorial of his or her choice, the only stipulation was the tutorial be challenging. Several Help Desk students have previous coding experience, so it was important to me as their instructor they spend their Hour of Code on something that further developed their existing coding skills and knowledge, or introduced them to a new type of programming language. Today, my Help Desk students spent some time working with my Digital Literacy/Web 2.0 students and will do so again tomorrow. On Friday, they will be available all day to assist any Burlington High School student who is interested in learning to code and will help guide them through a tutorial of their choice.
Below are my students’ reviews of their Hour of Code experience. Please take a few moments to read through their posts and while you are there, feel free to explore other areas of their blogs including their weekly reflections, Ted Talk and tech article analysis, and their progress towards their Individual Learning Endeavors. As always, if you have any questions about the Help Desk curriculum and how the program continues to evolve as Burlington approaches year two and half of our 1:1 initiative, please feel free to contact us!
