Danae Hernandez-Technology Instructor/Social Media Manager

FullSizeRender

My name is Ms. Danae Hernandez or as my students like to call me Ms. H. I have been with Computer Explorers for a little over 3 years now and I absolutely LOVE what I do. I get to teach classes that students love, while incorporating educational technology. I also get to blog and update our social media sites, which I love doing. I do hold a Bachelors in Elementary Education so I like to think I have a good grip on what students’ are learning in the classroom which helps me tie that into the technology classes I teach for this amazing company. When I am not working I am home with my soon to be 6 year old helping him with his homework and teaching him about technology and how important it really is. Other than that I love spending my free time with my family and friends:)

Winter Break has crept up quicker than we could say “Winter Break”

 

Holy cow, can you believe that winter break is upon us, I can’t. We would like to give you some ideas that you can use at home to keep your childrens’ mind rolling while on break. we offer a wide variety of classes and we focus on many different topics. One thing that never gets old for any student is working with any type of Lego .They are loved and played with by children of all ages. so we’d like to give you some fun at home activities your child can do from home. Extension activities

As you may already know Computer Explorers does a lot of work with coding. We have so many different coding classes and keep adding more. Coding is becoming a norm for elementary aged children and we help them learn the knowledge they need to excel in and out of school. Just take a look at this link and take a peek at what is going on in today’s coding world https://hourofcode.com/us. Here is another link of some coding examples, these are definitely some of the coding your child can learn in our classes, I recommend taking a look to see the many different types of coding there really are http://ey.westside66.org/wiki/pages/62T9F8/Coding_Examples.html, and lastly, here is a link that proves how important it is for your child to learn coding, it will soon be coming into your childs school (if it has not already) http://www.edutopia.org/blog/add-coding-elementary-curriculum-now-matt-harrell. We truly help all of our students understand the different coding languages such as Java, C++, etc. and with this knowledge they will not be fearful of coding in school, because coding can be very intimidating. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly at compexplorers.danae@gmail.com. If you would like more ideas for your child or if your child would like some extension activity ideas from a class that has just ended, please reach out to me, after all that is what I am here for. I would also like to give you a glimpse into some of our classes, so if your on the fence about enrolling your child, maybe this will help make your decision! COMPUTER EXPLORERS TechStars Programs Winter 2015-16. On behalf of Computer Explorers we would like to wish you and your families a very Happy Holiday Season and we hope to see you in 2016!!
