That’s right, the Hour of Code is coming up, so you can help your students develop their skills by incorporating some of the wonderful activities available on the Hour of Code website.

Project Rockit TV’s tagline is “Real talk on tough topics”. Project Rockit helps provide video starters for difficult conversations on important topics for digital citizenship, such as ‘How can I avoid hate in gaming?’ and ‘What if I get hassled for photos I don’t want to send?’ Suitable for Middle Schoolers and beyond, Project Rockit is making a difference in the lives of young people.
