Hays-Porter Elementary School starts After-School Computer Program  News  admin  20-Jan-2015  0  2615 reads


Hays-Porter Elementary School started its first After-School Computer Program!

Students, mostly from the 5th Grade, will learn basic computer skills based on the K-5 curriculum developed by Code.org 

This elementary school curriculum allows even the youngest students to explore the limitless world of computing. The courses blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” activities that require no computer at all. Each course consists of about 20 lessons, and by the end of it, students can create interactive games or stories that they can share with anyone. 

The goal is to prepare them for entering West End's own Taft Information Technology High School, and later  UC School of Information Technology, in case they would like to have a career in computers.

The students will be also exposed to various ways of using computers in their area of interest. For example, those interested in art could learn how to create a painting using a computer drawing program, or how to compose a song, or even how to create a video commercial.
