Hour of Code is here! Grade 1-5 will be studying programming for a few weeks in I.T. Specials, not just for one hour. Here are some words you must learn as we begin the unit:
code - (v) to write code, or to write instructions for a computer. (n) a set of instructions in a computer program in which letters, digits, etc. are represented as binary numbers
debugging - (v) finding and fixing problems in your algorithm or program.
program - (n) an algorithm that has been coded into a language that can be run by a machine (a binary language, meaning it is based on using only 1 and 0).
algorithm - (n) a set of instructions, procedures, steps, or a formula to solve a problem.
computer science - (noun) the science th at deals with methods of:
- processing information in digital computers,
- the design of computer hardware or software, and
- the applications of computers.
AISA will be celebrating Hour of Code at lots of different times in December and January. Watch for it in your IT and content classrooms.
