Middle and Upper School Participate in “Hour of Code”

Middle and Upper School boys took part in the Hour of Code as part of Computer Science Education Week (December 9-15).
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to coding that makes it accessible to all students and instills confidence in our boys that they are capable of learning the basics of coding. In a world that is increasingly surrounded by technology, it is important that we teach our boys these foundational 21st-century skills. No matter what field our boys choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
Middle School and Upper School Educational Technology Integrator Tatyana Dvorkin selected four different coding tutorials from code.org and hourofcode.com based on teacher suggestions. Each boy then chose one tutorial to work on independently during the Hour of Code, while our Technology Department, along with student helpers, circulated to assist. The tutorials ranged from creating music to crafting beautiful landscapes.

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
