So last week I took part in the hour code to teach computer science basics to every student, CSEdWeek is a an event which runs from December 9 to 15.
Code.org, a new non-profit organization, initiated one of CSEdWeek’s prime events: the “Hour of Code.” The event aimed to introduce 10 million students of all ages to computer science ideas and tools.
We held a number events with students of all ages teaching them coding for one hour by using TouchDevelop. Touchdevelop is as ideal as it a web based product so works on any device and is FREE.
I hope our effort into the The Hour of Code helped demonstrate to parents, teachers, and students how accessible coding can be and, at a deeper level, we hope it will drive demand for expanded computer science courses and activities in secondary schools.
