The Hour of Code

Today Mrs. Shelia Jones' Fundamentals of Web Page Design & Development classes participated in The Hour of Code 2016.  

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries to introduce the language of coding.  Coding has to do with the syntax, the fine details that allow a computer script to work. Think of coding as a spelling test where a sentence must have words correctly ordered with proper grammar and mechanics. If one single thing is wrong, then the grade on the spelling test decreases. Coding is similar; for if one thing is typed incorrectly, then the code won't work.

In class, each student chose a one-hour tutorial to complete. Once the student successfully completed the tutorial, students were able to print a Certificate of Achievement Award.
