Over the last year and a bit there have been a lot of changes not only in our work environments but also our kids schooling and after school activities. I know my family has had to adapt, learn, and change a lot! My Work hasn't changed too much, as I've been working remote for a while, but I have been able to use the knowledge and experience to help other teams and groups with their remote transition.
I've heard from a number of groups over the past little while that finding resources for kids to add to their learning and continue being engaged is a bit of a challenge. While we have done some home and online schooling with our own kids, the changes that have happened over the last year have made it hard for my kids to participate in a lot of the group activities and after school events that they were part of. So it has been great to hear from different groups to find out how they have been able to move their groups from in person to virtual and how they are continuing to provide community and instruction to kids and keep them engaged.
One group, the Brownie Scouts' of Kellytown, has been working on their "Coding Basics" badges at home, congratulations! This is a great example of how leaders like Girl Scout Troop leader Andrea have been able to adapt and continue with learning and engaging even though there are changes in everything! Maybe there should be some 'Adapting to Change' badges given out! Her Brownie Scouts wanted to share some resources and a great overview of popular programming languages that they found helpful in their at work at home. Have a look at the links page to see their recommendations. As Andrea pointed out, learning to code offers so many developmental and career benefits, it is great to see kids learning and passing on what they have learned to others.
Thanks for that recommendation, this will be a great help for others as well. Keep up the great work Andrea the Kellytown Brownie Scout troop!
