On Tuesday, Dec. 6 preschoolers at Stratford School in Altadena listened as Middle Schoolers in far-away Sunnyvale helped them learn computer coding fundamentals in a virtual classroom. The activity was part of Hour of Code, a global event put together by Code.org. All 23 Stratford School campuses participated in the world-wide event made possible by video conferencing.

The collaboration continued when preschool students at Stratford’s Melrose campus joined middle school students at Stratford’s San Jose Middle School in their virtual classroom collaboration. The two classrooms wrote and animated a story using both plugged and unplugged activities.

“As part of our balanced curriculum infused with fine arts and foreign language, we’re teaching our students programming skills starting as young as age three,” said Monisha Gupta, senior director of curriculum and instruction at Stratford School. “We believe it’s important that our students go beyond just being consumers of technology to becoming creators of the technology tools they use every day.”
