An Hour of Code. Cool, Important! Engaging?

If you are reading this blog (or any blog for that matter) you are probably familiar with the stats. For a refresher....

  • There will be one million more computing jobs than students over the next 10 years (adding up to $500 billion in salaries).
  • More than 50 percent of all projected math and science occupations are in computing occupations.
  • Computing occupations are among the highest-paying jobs for new graduates. Yet fewer than 3% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science.
  • In 25 states, computer science classes don’t count toward math or science high school graduation requirements.
An hour of code is a terrific way for you to try out the idea of teaching code in your classroom or your school. I have not tried it yet, but will be rolling it out this December. I would love your comments and ideas....

  • Is coding as important as science, math, english?
  • Is coding a way to reach a group of disengaged students?
  • What is your experience with using code.org or codeacademy?

In fact, this is why people are most interested in this profession. The day is not far when every student and every person will want to make a big name in the computing profession, make a name for themselves and many people are working hard in the computing profession with the help of coupons like the Hirts Gardens Coupon. They get rid of their financial worries through coupons.
