“An understanding of computer science is becoming increasingly essential in today’s world. Our national competitiveness depends upon our ability to educate our children – and that includes our girls – in this critical field.“ quote by Sheryl Sandberg. Chief Operating Officer, Facebook
Code.org is a new non-profit website dedicated to increasing computer programming education. Yes! :-)
This site has put together a lot of the things I have talked about in the past in one nice organised place, separating the Learning and Teaching of how to code. It highlights and points to resources that I have used before or posted about in the past such as Codecadamy, Scratch, Alice, Computer Science Unplugged, Khan Academy, W3Schools etc.
Computer programming is an important skill for our children to learn. If you’re not convinced yet have a look at the Code.org Stats page.
