Coding:

  • Khan Academy has entire units on various computer programming topics including HTML, Javascript, gaming  and more.

  • A great video from John Spencer to introduce students to Genius Hour.

      • Students must start with an essential question that cannot be answered with a simple Google search.
      • Students must research their question using reputable websites, interviews, and/or print resources.
      • Students must create something. Their product may be digital, physical or service-oriented.
