And as usual the question was: "How and where do I start"?
I therefore started looking for further information and found this interesting read. Getting involved in coding chats on Twitter, also helped.
Then [at Educamp Auckland] Lesley shared her coding slide in the 'Smackdown'... and I was intrigued.
I am now part of that G+ "Code Club for Teachers" and have completed my first Hour of Code. I am looking forward to further coding challenges and to ongoing personal learning & development.
Last week I used 'Lightbot' to introduce my 5 year old students to coding. What an amazing experience for all. They really enjoyed the session and seeing the engagement and co-operation amongst peers, were priceless.
I am looking forward to having this learning journey continue alongside my students. I am certain that we will make lots of mistakes, but [most importantly] we will all learn together!
I have also participated in an #aussieED chat, where we had interesting discussions around coding.
