programming as a way of learning and understanding the world. great explanation!

04:12 - Peggy George
Hi Joan! Welcome!

04:44 - Peggy George
what a fun thing to do!! interactive movie with ScratchJr! about what they were learning

04:58 - Peggy George
much more fun than just writing a paragraph :-)

05:05 - @bcdtech Maureen
Started using Cubetto in grade 1... want to use it as we write books.

05:51 - Peggy George

Working on using ozobots and makey makey to do an Ellis Island tour. Expanding on a lesson I found on ozobot portal

06:59 - Peggy George
this is the youtube link if the link doesn't work (Sam Patterson: Using Coding in Content Area Learning)

07:18 - Sam Patterson
that sounds interesting M- how do ozo and makey makey connect?

07:26 - Peggy George
that is such a cool video with Sam talking in the inset :-)

07:38 - Sam Patterson
thanks Peggy, this is Camtasia 3

07:48 - Peggy George
love it!

08:07 - Sam Patterson
the screen is showing

08:19 - Mirzi
I am having problem with the video

08:24 - Sam Patterson

08:49 - Sam Patterson
Mirzi -

08:53 - Sam Patterson
direct link

09:02 - Peggy George
Mirzi that is probably due to your internet connection. The video is in the Livebinder too so you can watch it later.

09:07 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Sam- working on it... Thea at Eduporium said she got it work when I asked her about it. I either have the earth connected all and touching all the time or miss entirely- work in progress.

09:32 - Sam Patterson
@M- keep me posted

09:36 - Peggy George
great point! teacher's job isn't to fix every problem!

09:37 - Coco
I'm watching the YouTube link as I'm waiting.

09:47 - Sam Patterson
my fav part of the vid is the guy on the bike almost hitting me

09:53 - Peggy George

10:20 - Sam Patterson
the Kano Pixal Hack hour of code is really cool

10:25 - Peggy George
Welcome deschi! So glad you could join us!

10:36 - Peggy George
Are you all finished watching the video?

10:45 - Sam Patterson

10:46 - Lorie Moffat
close to end

10:49 - Ben
does the app lab in allow you to test on different mobile devices?

10:51 - Peggy George

11:02 - Doug Henry in San Leandro, CA
great post!

11:09 - Sam Patterson
Ben I just log on through the devices

11:24 - Mirzi
got it, Peggy

11:54 - Peggy George
if you missed any of the video you can watch it later in the Livebinder.

12:05 - Ben
oh ok. i was thinking if the app that kids create could be published to play store or apple

12:20 - Peggy George (Sam Patterson: Beyond the Hour of Code: Programming in the Primary Grades)

12:30 - Peggy George (Follow Sam Patterson on Twitter)

12:48 - @bcdtech Maureen
Cool! I have one of those!

13:07 - Peggy George (Hour of Code: Creating a Game with Hummingbird)

13:13 - Janet P
CS-first is offering a variety of coding possibilities & providing materials; designed for "clubs" I'm using it first in class

13:21 - Peggy George (Hour of Code website)

13:27 - @bcdtech Maureen
Kids like Bitsbox in the past to create an app that they can play at home - used with 3rd graders

13:31 - Peggy George (Hour of Code blog)

13:54 - Peggy George (Hour of Code hashtag: #hourofcode) Be sure to follow this hashtag for lots of great sharing!

14:17 - Ben
scratch + makey makey are also fun

14:53 - Peggy George
kids are not nearly as "afraid" of programming as teachers are :-)

15:03 - Coco
Went to a Makey Makey workshop last week. Heard they are trying to make class packs to purchase.

15:44 - Ben
i want the cable-less makey makey

15:54 - Peggy George
We had two previous shows on Hour of Code and I included the recordings and the amazing Livebinders for those shows in our Livebinder today. You'll find tons of links in those Livebinders!

16:06 - Peggy George
thanks Coco! good to know!

16:15 - @bcdtech Maureen
When I first tried HOC I was all concerned about tracking progress thru the different games, etc. This year they will not be tracking progress. I control a bit more in K, 1 and 2, but after that I let the kids use any of the tutorials

16:34 - Peggy George
thanks for that tip Maureen!

16:44 - Ben
those are really nice photos

16:50 - Peggy George
that looks like so much fun!!!!

17:00 - @bcdtech Maureen
I use the little purple mice vs beebots... same sort of thing- only waaay cheaper

17:33 - Peggy George
if you have any questions for Sam as we go along please type them in the chat and Lorie will ask him during Q/A if he hasn't already answered them.

17:35 - Ben
see how the kids are so engaged

17:45 - @plnaugle (Paula)
First year of HOC we had a field trip to Apple Store at night to work on the lessons on the site. It was fun!

17:59 - Peggy George (Kodable: Introduction to Coding through Robotics)

18:09 - Peggy George (Robotics Activities from

18:12 - @bcdtech Maureen
These are the little purple mice that I use

18:21 - Ben
how do you make that grid on the floor?

18:32 - Patti Ruffing
sad to see that this year HOC site won't be saving student progress for the first week because of server overload - understandable but still disappointing

18:35 - Peggy George
Paula that sounds really fun!!! Lucky kids!

18:43 - Mirzi
Those Apps that kids program are accessible?

18:46 - @bcdtech Maureen
You can use painters tape on the floor to make grids- often we have tiles anyway

18:47 - debschi
Check out to connect programming and real world application

19:09 - Peggy George
thanks Debschi! I'll add that link to the Livebinder :-)

19:51 - Peggy George (Sam Patterson: Learning with Robots-Content Mastery and Social Skills)

20:15 - Peggy George
hey!!! math comes in real handy with that :-)

20:31 - Peggy George

20:38 - @bcdtech Maureen
New things I have tried this year... puzzlets and cubetto.

20:49 - Peggy George
Hi ami! Welcome!

20:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Ami! :)

21:36 - Peggy George (ScratchJR)

21:38 - ami
Hi Paula! THanks for the invite!

21:44 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Watching 9 year olds using Scratch Jr is so much fun. They love creating.

21:45 - Peggy George (ScratchJr Activities and Tutorial-type lessons)

21:47 - Coco
I have 4th graders who have not used Scratch. Would you recommend we dabble in Scratch Jr. first?

21:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
Saw Sam do some lessons in Scratch Jr this summer at the Scratch conference- wicked fun!

22:03 - Peggy George
great question Coco!

22:26 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Coco- 4th graders can start right out in Scratch

22:38 - Peggy George (Interview with Lisa Floyd: Why Our Kids Should be Coding)

22:53 - Peggy George
Great blog! (Lisa Floyd: Coding Ideas for Educators blog)

23:00 - Coco
Cool. Thanks! Love the recommendation to sign up for a teacher account.

23:13 - Peggy George
love that slide! Get IN the app!!!!

23:27 - Peggy George
oh I loved Oregon Trail!!!

23:33 - Patti Ruffing
I am ancient

23:40 - Peggy George
they even made it an app now :-)

23:50 - Coco
Oh my! 40 years old?

23:55 - Peggy George

24:08 - Peggy George
that's real power! remake the Oregon Trail game!!!

24:12 - Ben
often, remixing is a good start

24:43 - Peggy George (Matt Davis: Teach Your Kids to Code: 6 Beginner's Resources for Parents)

25:45 - Peggy George

25:45 - Ben
my kids had fun with our unit on scratch musical instruments that can be physically controlled using makey makey

25:57 - Peggy George
that sounds great Ben!

26:23 - debschi
hmmm...could include a discussion about Fair Use

26:54 - Peggy George

27:01 - Ben
remixing introduces design thinking concepts, they improve other people's works

27:03 - Peggy George
Josh Burker

27:21 - Peggy George (ScratchJr Paper-based Assessments)

27:26 - Ben
i think scratch promotes open source concepts with remixing

27:38 - Peggy George
I added all of his links from the slidedeck to our Livebinder.

27:45 - Ben
kids still acknowledge the creators of whatever codes they remix

28:10 - debschi
Need for me to get all the kids who love video games to start creating them!

28:24 - Peggy George
great point debschi!!!

28:45 - Ben
wow sam, those are really serious computer science concepts

28:57 - @bcdtech Maureen
How do you advise teachers to do HOC who have no programming experience and are afraid- cannot debug, etc..??

29:03 - Peggy George (Sam Patterson: Why Guided Access is Important in Elementary Grades)

29:30 - Peggy George
Amazing how Sam can be presenting and still follow the chat! Wow!

29:33 - Ben
most of our primary school teachers are just petrified with the idea of programming

29:45 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Ben- mine too!

29:51 - Peggy George (ScratchJr Activities and Tutorial-type lessons)

30:10 - @bcdtech Maureen
I have the whole school doing HOC, but I come in and "do it" with them- comfort level

30:29 - Peggy George
that's a great way to do it Maureen!

30:42 - Ben
sometimes i get older kids teach the younger kids and sometimes even the teachers

30:52 - debschi
Define Open Studio App?

31:36 - Peggy George
Hi Tama! Welcome!

31:46 - debschi
Got it! Sorry I missed that!

31:50 - Tama Trotti
hi, thank you.

32:11 - Peggy George (ScratchJr Kindergarten Names)

32:24 - Peggy George (ScratchJr Kindergarten Sight Words)

32:30 - Coco
Thanks for asking debschi. I was actually not sure about Open Studio app, too!

32:36 - Peggy George (ScratchJr Grade One Sight Words)

32:39 - Laurie 2
Can you share the Live Binder Link?

32:52 - Peggy George

32:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
Do you recommend doing offline/ paper coding- for teachers to start or jump right into HOC or apps, etc?

33:23 - Ben
Do you give them increasing levels of challenges?

33:58 - debschi
Great idea about screen shots alog with reflection!!!

34:09 - Ben
for paper, pseudo-coding perhaps could work

34:28 - @bcdtech Maureen
When I was in a regular computer classroom, I would end up taking stuff home to debug- did not have all the answers- told the kids I had homework.

34:36 - Peggy George (ScratchJr Paper-based Assessments)

34:51 - Peggy George
love it!!!! dancing!!

35:07 - Peggy George
Hi LucianaCurator! Welcome!

35:36 - LucianeCurator

35:51 - Ben
my students make Elsa dance crazily on hehe

36:02 - debschi
Our HS kids not in robotics classes have no experience with coding. Simple offliner activities would work with them also!

36:05 - Peggy George
hahaha! out of the mouths of babes!

36:20 - Laurie 2
Thanks Peggy

36:48 - Peggy George

37:16 - Peggy George (Sam Patterson: Learning with Robots-Content Mastery and Social Skills)

37:32 - Ben
iteration, loops, etc. these would be fun being acted out

37:42 - Peggy George
so easy to personalize the learning with coding! these examples are really helpful!

38:15 - @bcdtech Maureen

38:28 - Peggy George
Level editors

39:01 - Ben
i used gamestar before... their "elements of game design" was a good intro

39:11 - Peggy George

39:20 - Ben
swift is new!

39:40 - Peggy George

39:50 - @bcdtech Maureen
I am sooo bad at scrolling platofrm games. Just not coordinated at all.

40:02 - Peggy George

40:09 - Ben
wonder if 1:1 ipad programs can help promote swift

40:23 - Peggy George

40:43 - Peggy George

40:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
My 3rd graders like lightbot

40:59 - Ben

41:16 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Maureen, I do not playing video games because I feel so uncoordinated. :)

41:35 - Peggy George
all of the stick people look the same :-) mine do (still) :-)

41:51 - @bcdtech Maureen
On LIghtbot-I got to a point where I was unsure... I woke up in the night and finished... took a screen shot to show the kids- They laughed at me.

42:00 - Peggy George
me too Paula and Maureen!!! I'm pathetic with video games!

42:06 - Ben

42:08 - Coco
My children used to laugh at me because I am so bad at video games!

42:22 - debschi
Would love to have kids create game as tool for content area knowledge creation.

42:26 - Peggy George (Kodable: Introduction to Coding through Robotics)

43:07 - Ben

43:13 - Lorie Moffat
I had high school math students use Scrath to explain math concepts.

43:23 - Peggy George
Lorie thanks for sharing that!

44:10 - @bcdtech Maureen
I like the addition with the beebots- gonna have to try that with purple mice in grade 1

44:33 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Talking of stickman, have any of you used this with students -

44:57 - Patti Ruffing
@paula I have done that with my grandson

45:15 - Ben
Paula i use Pivot

45:27 - Peggy George

45:34 - Peggy George

45:55 - Coco
Yes! My students loved drawstickman bcause I am a self proclaimed stick figure champion. Students are much more talented than me!

46:15 - Peggy George
kids of all ages would have fun doing that!

46:43 - Ben
has anyone used little bits?

47:09 - @bcdtech Maureen
The follks at Puzzlets have a station system of introducing robots/coding... check it out.... I will find the link

47:33 - Peggy George
I'll include all of Sam's slides in the Livebinder so you can see those he is passing over quickly :-)

47:50 - Terry
Thank you, Peggy!

47:50 - debschi
Feel like all of this would be great too with ;low level readers/writers ...the sequencing etc
