How to plan your Hour of Code

Присоединяйся к движению и познакомь группу учащихся с их первым часом в информатике с помощью этих шагов. Час Программирования легко провести - даже для новичков! If you'd like an extra set of hands to help out, you can find a local volunteer to help run an Hour of Code in your class.

Take a look at our participation guide if you still have questions.

2. Explore Activities and Tutorials

We provide a variety of fun, student-guided tutorials for all age groups and experience levels. It’s popular for students to try self-led tutorials, though many activities include lesson plans for teachers to guide discussion or extend the activity as well.

Explore the activities and decide ahead of time if you want to choose a single tutorial for all of your students, or let each child pick their own.

3. Create your Plan for the Day

Think about your technology needs - computers are optional!

  • Час Кода лучше всего проводить с компьютерами, имеющими подключение к Интернету. But you don’t need a computer for every child, and you can even do the Hour of Code without a computer at all! For unplugged activities, simply filter the Classroom Technology section to show options for “No computers or devices”.
  • Протестируйте пособия на компьютерах или устройствах учеников, чтобы убедиться, что они корректно работают в браузерах со звуком и видео. Have low bandwidth? Plan to show videos at the front of the class, so each student isn't downloading their own videos. Or try the offline tutorials.
  • Обеспечьте наушниками ваш класс или попросите учеников принести свои собственные, если урок, который вы выбрали, лучше всего работает со звуком.
  • Don't have enough devices? Use pair programming. Когда ученики становятся партнерами, они помогают друг другу и меньше полагаются на учителя. Также они увидят, что информатика социальна и сплачивает людей.

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.



Learn more about posters, videos, stickers and other ways to promote your event to your community.

5. 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!

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:

  • Объясните как технологии влияют на наши жизни, с примерами, которые тронут и мальчиков, и девочек (расскажите о спасении жизней, помощи людям, объединении людей и т. д.).
  • Расскажите, как программирование в используется повседневной жизни.
  • See tips for getting girls interested in computer science here.

6. Get Coding!

Объясните ученикам, как начать

Если ваши ученики сталкиваются с трудностями, будет правильно ответить:

  • “Я не знаю. Давай разберемся вместе”
  • “Технология не всегда работает так, как мы хотим”
  • “Изучение программирования - это как изучение нового языка, вы не сразу станете говорить свободно.”

Что делать, если кто-то справляется раньше всех?

  • Students can see all tutorials and try another Hour of Code activity.
  • Или попросите учеников, кто закончил раньше, помочь их товарищам, которые испытывают трудности.
