Learn how to teach your students how to MAKE video games, not just play them. Students will learn programming skills as well as logic and reasoning. This introductory course is for new users of the "Hour of Code" site. Teachers will join the "Hour of Code" movement by writing several lines of code and move beyond the hour of code. Hour of Code is the president's initiative to bring programming skills to all American children. It is a FREE web based program that teachers may enroll their class in. Students learn from the best in "Hour of Code," as leaders in the industry such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg tell their stories and teach basic programming. Motivate your students as they program video games. Join the fun and "Get with the Program." No prerequisite skills required.
