Our Future is Looking So Bright
Students at Kelley Smith Elementary School are learning Computer Coding with Dot and Dash during their Media Special!
Students participated in the global event, Hour of Code, during the week of December 5-11th. Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science. During this hour students in grades Pre-K through Fifth grade used different games on iPads to program or code robots Dot and Dash to perform commands. Dash is a real robot that responds to voice, navigating objects, dancing, and singing.
Benefits of learning coding in the classroom include building confidence and creativity, problem solving and logic skills. Coding is an empowering skill that allows students to become fluent with technology and computational thinking.
