Hello, I am Scott Varner. I am a database developer turned Chief Technology Officer for Frederick County, Virginia. I have a 6 year old daughter that I have been teaching to code. A colleague recommended Code.org as a resource. It’s one thing to know how to code and another to know how to teach it. I would like to start an after school coding club at my daughter’s school. Looking forward to learning from all of you.

My name is Trish and I am in Florida. I am a School Library Media Specialist and have been “dabbling” in coding for a few years now, but really want to understand the process better. I want to integrate more of the computer sciences into my curriculum and this seemed a good place to start! I have been teaching in a K-6 elementary school for 30 years and I am still learning new tools to share with my students. Looking forward to using the resources.

Hi there!
My name is Kerri Hardy from Aurora, Ontario, Canada.
I am a teacher librarian at a k-8 school.
I did this a little backwards and have been using the CS fundamentals course with the grade 6 students that I teach and now I am taking the course. I’m hoping that I get some more insight for how to encourage other teachers at my school to take the coding plunge.
I am amazed at how much my students have grown in their perseverance, problem solving and willingness to try challenging things. The best are the discussions after when we relate it to other areas in our lives ie math, art, any other area :slight_smile:
I tell them all the time…They are going to grow up to be the app creators…not just the app consumers!

Love to @code.org from Canada

Привет! Меня зовут Елена.Я живу в Украине. Мне 36 лет. У меня есть сын. Ему 10 лет. Я с мужем более 10 лет работаю в сфере информационных технологий. Сейчас у моего мужа не большая фирма по предоставлению IT услуг. Недавно я заметила, что в нашем городе не так много уделяют внимания развитию компьютерной грамотности у детей. То есть, уроки информатики в школах есть, но там даются поверхностные знания. Поэтому в сентябре прошлого года я открыла частные курсы по обучению компьютерной грамотности в моем городе. На данный момент у меня обучается 17 учеников, среди которых и мой сын. Пока я обучаю их пользованию компьютером и разным интересным функциям.
Приблизительно 2 года назад я узнала про code.org. Мой сын очень любил проходить задания по игре Minecraft. Поэтому я захотела проводить такие занятия по программированию и для других детей нашего города.
Так как у меня нет образования педагога и занимаюсь я этой деятельностью как самоучка, мне интересны любые курсы, которые бы могли повысить мой уровень в преподавании.
Буду рада новым знакомствам, а также, советам.
