Starting tomorrow, being Digital learning Day, I plan to start using Code.Org, the site that lets a student learn coding, and understand the syntax behind an interactive website.
Code.Org is backed by two of the most recognized coders in the world: Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill –needs no introduction– Gates. Partners include Amazon, Apple, Google, Yahoo, Khan Academy, and Saleforce.com
One of the goals of Code.org is to introduce Computer Science into the math and science “Core” curriculum. The thinking behind this push is to make students excited about computer science, which tends to be confused with Technology Literacy, and ‘education technology.’
Indeed, it’s never too early to get students fired up about the ‘science’ of what makes computers so interactive. Even if it means introducing a Red Bird into class.
As the site says, this is for those age six to… 106! Which means you qualify, too!
