Hi everyone! This week (December 9th-15th, 2019) is Computer Science Education Week! We are celebrating this week by discussing our favorite resources to use with your students this week.
Made with Code: This is created by Google. It gives simple, easy to use projects for students to complete and code. Geared more toward getting girls into coding, however, it is suitable for everyone.
Google CS First: Geared toward students ages 9-14, CS First offers full curriculum to teachers and students. Best of all, there is no experience needed! As a teacher, if you know nothing about coding, this is a good place to go.
Cubelets: Magnetic Blocks that attach to each other to perform a task. Can be used as a stand-alone product or you can program them.
Code.org: One of my favorites. Very well done. Longer and shorter lessons and all ages covered.
Code Academy: Similar to Code.org or Madewithcode.com, this site offers a graphical way to program.
A list of A TON of resources: https://skillcrush.com/2016/03/15/64-online-resources-to-learn-to-code-for-free/
New! Grasshopper: Also by Google and its a pretty easy way to graphically code for free.
This list is incomplete! Do you have something you use in your class? Share it with me.
