Coding

While you're waiting for your papers to be edited and returned to you, start building your own coding independent study course.  You may use any of the following options:

https://code.org/ (drag and drop/block coding... this is the beginner level for those who haven't tried coding before)

https://scratch.mit.edu/ (more block coding... this site lets you use your imagination to create more than to solve puzzles like on code.org)

https://www.madewithcode.com/ (several coding activities... I don't know much about this one... maybe you could become our expert on this site!)

https://www.codeschool.com/learn (this is where you can learn different computer programming languages like HTML, JavaScript, and iOS)

https://www.khanacademy.org/computing (a variety of computer programming experiences in the Khan Academy course platform)

https://www.codecademy.com/ (another site to learn different coding languages)

Look through the sites and find an area that interests you.  Decide what you will learn between December 5 and December 25.  You will be submitting your plan & goals next week into Canvas.  Create an account for yourself using your school e-mail and password, and start learning!
