How to teach one Hour of Code with your class

Прикључи се покрету и представи групи ученика њихов први час рачунарства са овим корацима. Час кодирања је лако покренути - чак и за почетнике! 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.

1. Watch this how-to video

2. Choose a tutorial for your hour

We provide a variety of fun, student-guided tutorials for all age groups and experience levels. Students do the activities on their own, though many activities include lesson plans for teachers (you'll see the link when you click the activity) to guide discussion or extend the activity.

3. Promote your Hour of Code

Promote your Hour of Code with these tools and encourage others to host their own events.

4. Plan your technology needs - computers are optional

The best Hour of Code experience includes Internet-connected computers. Није потребан рачунар за свако дете а час кодирања можете одржавати и без рачунара.

Свакако тестирајте водиче о ученичким рачунарима или уређајима како би се осигурало да раде исправно у прегледачима са звуком и видео записом. Имате мали бендвич? Планирајте да покажете видео записе испред разреда, тако да сваки студент не би морао да преузима своје личне видео записе. Или покушајте с упутствима ван мреже.

Омогућите слушалице за своје ученике или их питајте да донесу своје, ако упутство које сте изабрали ради боље с звуком.

Don't have enough devices? Use pair programming. Када ученици раде с партнером, они помажу један другоме и мање се ослањају на наставника. They’ll also see that computer science is social and collaborative.

5. Start your Hour of Code off with an inspiring speaker or video

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!

Show an inspirational video:

  • The original 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.).
  • As a class, list things that use code in everyday life.
  • See tips for getting girls interested in computer science here.

6. Code!

Direct students to the activity

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

  • “I don’t know. Let’s figure this out together.”
  • “Technology doesn’t always work out the way we want.”
  • “Learning to program is like learning a new language; you won’t be fluent right away.”

What if a student finishes early?

  • Students can see all tutorials and try another Hour of Code activity.
  • Or, ask students who finish early to help classmates who are having trouble with the activity.


7. Celebrate

What comes after the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code is just the first step on a journey to learn more about how technology works and how to create software applications. To continue this journey:

  • Encourage students to continue to learn online.
  • Attend a 1-day, in-person workshop to receive instruction from an experienced computer science facilitator. (US educators only)
