The Hour of Code is a one-hour, hands-on introduction to computer science.
It is part of Computer Science Education Week,
which is taking place December 9th to 15th. But your Hour of Code can happen before, during, or after CSEd Week
– and you can easily tailor the activity to fit any time frame.
Check computing resources
Make sure there is an Internet-accessible computer for each student or pair of students in your class.
If you do not have a reliable or easily accessible Internet connection, you can
and install it on each computer before the session. Scratch is free!

My first Mass CUE experience was quite an eye-opener. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but I certainly didn’t anticipate walking into a scene that was reminiscent of my days as a recruiter for Southern New Hampshire University. It reminded me of the time I had the opportunity to represent SNHU at the International Hotel, Motel, and Restaurant Show held annually at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan. I knew there would be a vendor showcase at Mass CUE, however I didn’t realize the magnitude of educational technology companies that would be on hand offering demos, free giveaways
All undergraduates at Clemson University are expected to create and submit a digital portfolio as evidence of academic and experiential mastery of Clemson’s core competencies.
Students collect work from their classes and elsewhere, connecting (tagging) it to the competencies (Mathematical Literacy; Natural Science; Science and Technology in Society; Social Sciences; Cross-Cultural Awareness; Arts and Humanities; and the distributed competencies Ethical Judgment and Critical Thinking) throughout their undergraduate experience.

If you’ve used Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, or just about any other social network then you’ve probably seen some interesting quotes presented in the form of a splashy and colorful image. You may have thought “I wish I had the time and graphic design expertise to create something nifty like that! My students and friends would love it.”
Well, the long wait is over. Below is a useful list of more than two dozen (and growing) sites that let you easily create interesting quote images. These can be useful for presentations or project-based learning in just about any classroom.
For example, you can have students find a favorite quote, create an innovative image out of that quote, and then stand up and explain why that quote matters to them. The quote can

We don’t talk a lot about homeschooling here at Edudemic, mainly because the vast majority of our readers are classroom based teachers (or at least group-based teachers – we know that many of you are online teachers!). The fact that we don’t talk much about it shouldn’t be read into too much- there’s still a lot to say about homeschooling – or unschooling, or hackschooling, as different variations are becoming known.
This awesome TED talk was given by 13 year old Logan LaPlante – a ‘hackschooler’ himself. He talks about why hackschooling makes him happy. Whether you’re a classroom teacher, administrator, a homeschooler, or otherwise, there are a lot of takeaways about personalized education in this talk.
