If you are interested in continuing to have your students code and have the information save, then make sure to log on to studio.code.org/courses (this is also the link to place in a site such as Google Classroom where students can log on throughout the year).
In the upper right select sign in and then create an account (if in a Google District I would recommend choosing Continue with Google).
You are then in "My Dashboard"
On this screen you can scroll down a bit and create a new classroom section
When you select Create a section you can then choose picture, word, or personal logins. If you work in a Google District be sure to scroll down just a bit and choose Google Classroom.
You can now add your particular classroom and choose what course you would like them to start
I hope you and your students enjoy this time for students to be creative, show some grit, laugh, and have fun creating!
Embedded below is a 2 minute and 30 second YouTube tutorial I created followed by information from Hadi Patovi (founder of Code.org).
The Hour of Code is a month away, happening this year from Dec. 7-13, 2020, and
we’re excited to announce 115 brand-new tutorials and lesson plans! Many
activities were created with remote learning in mind to support the various
classroom models taking place during this time.
New mini-lessons for virtual classrooms
We hope everyone can join us this year for CodeBytes, our brand new series of easy-to-digest, 20
minute interactive lessons that will stream twice daily during Computer Science
Education Week, Monday through Friday, December 7-11. If you’re planning for a
classroom that’s gone fully virtual, CodeBytes
are designed to fit smoothly into a distance learning plan. Episodes are
tailored to different grade levels.
Whether students have a computer or a smartphone, they can interact with and
tune-in to every episode. Each lesson is hosted by Code.org staff and blends
computer science with real-world topics, including artificial intelligence and #CSforGood.
Take a look at our planned
activities, and add your favorites to your calendar so you don’t miss out.
Explore endless computer
science topics with brand-new tutorials
This year’s activities dive into tons of different CS topics like AI, data
processing, and app & game design, as well as programming concepts like
events, loops, and variables!
No computer? No problem.
Unplugged resources for students
Every student deserves to learn computer science regardless of what technology
they have at home. A number of engaging
new unplugged options from our partners at Google, Kodable, iRobot, and
elsewhere are available to learners with low or no connectivity or limited
We’ve also created a printable Hour
of Code Unplugged Activity Packet for ages 4-18. Please include these
resources in your next communication to parents and caretakers so that your
students can still join this global event.
Find a remote volunteer
for your Hour of Code
To make this year’s event even more engaging for students, try inviting
a volunteer to speak to your classroom! Many volunteers* are eager to help
in-person or virtually and are also CS professionals who can speak about their
Whether your students are learning in-person, at home, or a hybrid of both, we
hope that these resources can make it simpler than ever to bring an Hour of
Code to students of all ages. However you choose to participate, we can’t thank
you enough for your effort and support.
