Fayston Students Engaging in Hour of Code!


Fayston School engages in Hour of Code this week!  The Hour of Code is a global movement that introduces students to learn computer science. It is designed to demystify coding and show students that anybody can learn the basics. Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. See more stats on code.org.  Below is a window into what The Hour of Coding looks like today here at FES!
Mrs. Schlageter, our tech integrationist, introduced Mrs. Boyden's 1st and 2nd graders to Kodable. Let me just say that engagement was high and students were seriously coding! Here is one of our students explaining to me how he is learning how to code.

Mrs. Schlageter engaged Mrs. Vasseur's 5th and 6th grade class in coding too!  Students got to choose programs that introduced them to coding.  Some students choose Music Made with Code, Artist, Scratch, Mindcraft, and Lightbot.  I asked the question... "Is coding all fun and games?"  All students with smiles on their faces said, "Yes!".
