Next week, students in 57,000 classrooms around the world will learn their first Hour of Code, jumping into a field that can change the rest of their lives!
Here’s what you need to know now to make your Hour of Code a success:
1) Choose from final tutorials
Every Hour of Code tutorial is now ready. We’ve been adding more options and improving what’s available every day.
2) Use friendly urls
When you’re ready to start your Hour of Code, write an easy, “friendly url” on the board. Each tutorial has a short link. Instruct students to type it into their browsers to get started.
3) Print certificates and student artwork (NEW)
Generate and print certificates in bulk here. If you use our tutorial Artist with Anna and Elsa, you’ll be able to print your students’ artwork next week, too.
4) Watch inspiring video chats – celebrate computer science all week
Throughout the next week, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Ashton Kutcher and more will chat with classrooms around the country. Tune into the live chats, or watch the video archives.
5) Find an expert mentor to help your class
