It's not too early to start thinking about the Hour of Code for this year’s Computer Science Education Week (December 8 - 14, 2014).
You don't have to be a computer science teacher to join in. The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 30 languages.
Last year several classrooms here at Piedmont participated including the entire sixth grade language arts team - and we'd love to add you to the list.
