Sådan planlægger du din Hour of Code

Join the movement and introduce your students to computer science with these steps.

Computational thinking helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity. And technology is transforming every industry on the planet. Students today should learn how to create technology, not just use it. By starting early, they’ll have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

Trying an Hour of Code is a simple and fun way to introduce students to computer science, perhaps for the very first time, and it fits perfectly for both in-class and after-school settings. Take a look at our participation guide if you still have questions.

An Hour of Code can also be hosted remotely! To get started, check out our tips for hosting a virtual Hour of Code event.


1. Watch the Hour of Code how-to video


2. Explore activities and tutorials

We provide a variety of fun, student-guided tutorials for all age groups and experience levels. Det er populært blandt elever at afprøve selvstyrende vejledninger, men mange aktiviteter indeholder lærervejledninger til at guide diskussioner og udvide aktiviteterne.

Gå på opdagelse i aktiviteterne og beslut i forvejen om du vil vælge en enkelt vejledning til alle dine elever, eller om du vil lade hvert barn vælge deres egen.


3. Create your plan for the day

4) Planlæg hvad du har brug for af udstyr - computere er valgfri

  • The best Hour of Code experience includes Internet-connected computers. Du behøver ikke en computer for hvert barn, og du kan sagtens lave en Hour of Code uden en computer overhovedet. Hvis du vil benytte unplugged aktiviteter, skal du bare filtrere Classroom Technology således at den viser muligheden “No computers or devices”.
  • Make sure to test tutorials on student computers or devices to ensure they work properly on browsers with sound and video. Har du lav båndbredde? Planlæg med at vise videoerne for klassen, så hver elev ikke skal downloade videoen selv. Eller prøv de offline vejledninger.
  • Stil høretelefoner til rådighed i din klasse, eller bed eleverne medbringe deres egne, hvis øvelsen, du vælger, fungerer bedst med lyd.
  • Har du ikke nok enheder? Use pair programming. Når eleverne arbejder sammen, hjælper de hinanden og har mindre brug for hjælp fra læreren. De vil også opleve at programmering er en social aktivitet, hvor samarbejde er vigtigt.

Pick a day and time

People around the world join in the Hour of Code celebration during CS Education Week (December 9-13) when the latest tutorials and activities are released. But you can do an Hour of Code any day of the year!


4. Promote your Hour of Code

Now that you've planned your event, it's time to start promoting it!

Tell your School and Community

Promote the Hour of Code to other teachers who may want to join in on the fun! This is also a great opportunity to reach out to your school’s PTSA or share in parent newsletters, letting them know their children may come home wanting to try more activities and tutorials!

Let Volunteers Know by Registering Your Event

When you sign-up your Hour of Code event, you’ll receive helpful email communications with news and tips for hosting a successful Hour of Code. It’s also how you can let local volunteers know your school is participating. Volunteers are a great resource and can come speak to your class about computer science or simply help your students with Hour of Code activities.

Get your Students Excited

Lead up to the event by sharing inspirational videos highlighting diverse people and creative ways that computer science can be used. Or order inspirational posters for your classroom! Students are more excited to participate in a subject when they see people who look like them encouraging it.

5. How to start your Hour of Code strong

Once your Hour of Code celebration has arrived, make sure you start your event strong with some of these tools and tips.

Invite a local volunteer to inspire your students by talking about the breadth of possibilities in computer science. There are thousands of volunteers around the world ready to help with your Hour of Code through either a classroom visit or video chat with your students!

Vis en inspirerende video:

  • The original Code.org launch video, featuring Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and NBA star Chris Bosh. (There are 1 minute, 5 minute, and 9 minute versions available)
  • Find more inspirational resources and videos.

It’s okay if both you and your students are brand new to computer science. Here are some ideas to introduce your Hour of Code activity:

  • Explain ways that technology impacts our lives, with examples both boys and girls will care about (talk about saving lives, helping people, connecting people, etc.).
  • Lav som klasse en liste over ting i hverdagen, som bruger kode.
  • See tips for getting young women interested in computer science here.

6. Get coding!

Direct students to the activity

When your students come across difficulties it's okay to respond:

  • "Det ved jeg ikke. Lad os se om vi kan finde ud af det sammen."
  • "Det er ikke altid teknologien opføre sig helt som vi ønsker."
  • "At lærer at programmere er som at lære et nyt sprog. Kun øvelse gør mester."

What if a student finishes early?

  • Students can see all tutorials and try another Hour of Code activity.
  • Eller du kan bede de elever, der er tidligt færdige om, at hjælpe de klassekammerater der har problemer med deres aktivitet.

7. Celebrate your students' success
