"Set Your Clocks, the Hour of Code is Coming Soon!" - #techeducator Podcast Episode 76

The #techeducator podcast was all about code this past week as Sam Patterson (@SamPatue) facilitated a great discussion on ways to incorporate programming for the upcoming Hour of Code, set to take place between December 8th and December 14th.  Special guests included Susan Bearden (@s_bearden), who described her experience with Crescerance (last week's guest!) in creating apps with her students, and her own app that is available (Tweechme). Tara Linney (@TechTeacherT) also joined in the festivities as she shared her expertise on how coding can help meet Common Core State Standards. Family coding nights and engaging "beyond the hour" activities were also discussed.

The podcast will be taking a break so everyone can enjoy the holiday weekend.  It will return on Sunday, December 7th.  The topic is subject to change, but right now student response systems, such as Poll Everywhere and Kahoot, are currently on the schedule for exploration and demonstration.  Thanks for watching!
