Students stand to gain the most from technology, and every student deserves the tools to succeed.
The Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual call to action to inspire students to learn computer science. As well as to advocate for equity in computer science education, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field.
CS First is an initiative of Google for Education which; offers a free computer science curriculum that makes coding easy to teach and fun to learn.
was built by educators who wanted a tool that allowed every teacher to teach computer science, even if they weren’t tech experts. As a result, they developed a curriculum that made it easy to teach the basics.
There are two beginner classes being offered during the Hour of Code by LagosMums.
1. Code Your Hero
In this module, students will choose an everyday hero from their own lives and build a story or game using code that gives their hero superpowers. The learning outcomes include learning about computer science and Scratch. At the end of the hour of code, the child would have been able to turn an everyday hero into a superhero.
2. Create your own Google logo
In this module, students will bring the Google logo to life using code, utilizing programming and design. The learning outcomes includes learning about computer science and Scratch. In addition the students will learn how to use loops, events, and sequencing to design and animate a Google logo.
