Hour of Code
Lesson Source: Kodable
Today we will learn about coding. It is the language that people use to tell a computer what to do. Today we will act as a programmer to command a character to move and turn. If it doesn't work the first time, we will fix it and try again.
- Programmer: People that write the code (language) that tells the computer what to do.
- Code: The language that programmers use and create to tell computers what to do.
Language Objectives: Students will be able to listen to and follow directions to use basic programming language to move a “character” forward and do other actions.
Technology Standard: Computational Thinker - Students develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that leverage the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions.
