Beyond the Hour of Code: Implementation for All

Presented by Bryan L. Miller, Educator Community Manager, Wonder Workshop and Kiki Prottsman, Curriculum Development Manager, Code.org®
Sponsored by Wonder Workshop
If you attended the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the webinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Coding & Robotics K-8 community and go to the Webinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.
Schools throughout the world participate in the Computer Science Education Week’s #HourofCode, which will take place in 2016 from December 5th to 9th. Unfortunately, many schools don’t move beyond that hour. As stakeholders in providing the best educational experiences to prepare students for tomorrow, it is imperative that we move “Beyond the Hour of Code” and truly integrate coding into the daily instruction for all.
