Welcome to my blog. My name is Naketa Ikihele. This blog has random musings and reflections from various facets of my life. Originally hailing from Aotearoa/New Zealand my passion and addiction for learning has enabled me to dabble in teaching in the private and public sector, nature kindergarten, facilitation, educational technologies in the early years, community projects, leadership roles, collaboration, communities of practice, international teaching and educational coaching.
4 year olds and #hourofcode - we did it! (only just)
We attempted an Hour of Code in class this week. I have to say - it was a bit tricky. We worked through the Angry Birds lesson and we were doing okay till we got to level 7, then it started to get tricky so we made lots of mistakes to learn how to get past each stage. We then got to level 14 and got really stuck. so I had to ask my own children to help us to get to Level 20.
*Current thinking suggests that children will need to learn how to code in the future. I'm on the lookout for other ways to get my kinds thinking in code, some suggestions already include Hopscotch and Scratch Jr.
