The first Coding Academy at St. John’s proved to be very popular with students from both ES and MS. The group started with the Hour of Code activity at Code.org and then completed the introductory course online. Over the course of the academy they have all moved on to creating their own games and web sites using the online resources available through code.org and other online sites.
The most rewarding aspect of the academy was seeing how the students worked together and helped each other out with any problems. The high levels of enthusiasm and collaboration were an inspiration. There are some budding coding teachers amongst the group!
Congratulations to everyone who participated.
