I have to admit that I was dubious at first. First Graders coding? How could that work? However, Nicole had done ALL of the background work and in no time at all, we were both on board and eagerly awaiting the experience of spending an hour with a room full of First Graders learning to code on an iPad.
Today was our day and it was an amazing amount of fun. We "Chirped" out the website to the students, Nicole walked them through the first round of the coding activity (Angry Birds!) that she had chosen for them and they were off!
Thanks so much, Nicole, for bringing this event to my attention and for letting me be a part of it!
