Hour of Code
Overview: The 'Hour of Code' is a nationwide initiative by CSEdWeek and code.org to introduce computer programming to 10 million students and encourage them to learn programming.
Overview: Genius hour is a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school.
Project Based Learning
Overview: Project Based Learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge.
This year one of my goals is to have each student create a blog. It will be an on-line journal of work, reflections, art, photos and videos that students take or make. This will be a whole year, on going project that I believe will be great to look at by the end of the year.
This year I have several goals I want us as a class to focus on and meet.
1. Students will become Independent Learners
2. Students will spend more time on task than playing around
3. Students will produce high quality work
4. Students will become better at working with partners or groups
5. Students will work together to complete their projects on time
6. Students will step out of their comfort zone and try new things
