Preparing Kids to Code - Apps for all Ages
You know what I love about these apps. Often I show a kid one of these apps and away they go. There is no instruction, they just go for it. These apps are good for all kids. They develop logical thinking and sequential planning. They encourage you to fail in order to develop the sequence.

Every now and again you come across a kid that would not only benefit from one of these apps but actually needs something like this to challenge their intellect. This is where they come into their own. These apps are literally two steps away from actually coding and so are an excellent introduction to a really motivated kid who wants to develop in this area. Who knows they might be writing an app for your class next week.

My Paperless Classroom: Primary Teachers: Learn Coding Fundamentals in an Hour | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
If you have heard about the hour of code, I hope you saw this coming from the title. If you don't know about the hour of code, it is time. Code.org wants to support everybody everywhere in learning to code. They are organizing all kinds of people to create tutorials that can be used in schools to get kids coding, even if it is just for a one hour guided activity

"It’s true that many students today have access to laptops and tablets, “but we almost never give them the keys to the technology kingdom,” Levitt said.

“We don’t teach them how the software and hardware they’re using work, despite the fact that we know they are very curious,” Levitt said. 

“We don’t give them the tools to innovate, and we don’t create the problem-solving pathways that support so much other learning.”

Coding classes: Students, dogged teachers overcome obstacles to add computer science classes | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
The Bay Area may incubate techno-innovation, but it’s fallen as flat as the rest of the country in one critical area: nurturing the next generation of cyber whizzes. Business and political leaders alike have harped on the need to teach kids computer programming and expand the traditional geek pool to include more girls, Latinos and African-Americans. From Oakland to Walnut Creek to San Jose, schools are introducing coding classes.

Computer science adds new dimension to study of chemistry - The Stanford Daily

Tossing the plastic model aside, Stack projected the same three-dimensional model onto the screen with his laptop through a chemistry computer program.

 

Computational chemistry allows a computer to understand a specific aspect of science — such as the structure of a protein — and then learn how it functions. Applications of coupling computers and chemistry include creating solar cells and drugs and optimizing motor vehicles.

“I think the UK is probably the first large entity to introduce programming in schools but we are starting to see this happen elsewhere. ...

“Last week, the minister for education in France decided that every school will have a programming class come September. The future is a world where people and universities will work together to prepare people for the jobs of the future and a real fundamental part of that is programming.”
