How One “Hour of Code” Can Launch an Entire Computer Science Program

How One “Hour of Code” Can Launch an Entire Computer Science Program | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
"Thanks to code.org‘s “Hour of Code,” millions of students will get their first taste of computer programming this week, Dec. 9-13, designated as Computer Science Education Week. If schools do decide to go beyond the one hour and take the next step to add coding as a part of school curriculum, what will this look like? Getting kids excited about coding is the easy part. What about the stuff that administrators and educators must worry about — funding, teacher development, curriculum, connection to standards? And, where do you fit this “coding class” in a school day?"

5 Real Benefits of Using Animation in the Classroom | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
"Some teachers are a little torn over the use of animation in the classroom – lots love it but sometimes people feel it can be a time-consuming waste of precious classroom hours, with students spending a long time perfecting something that they don’t believe has huge educational value. In fact, there are fantastic concrete reasons to take advantage of the massive range of animation tools out there specifically for use in a teaching environment. Here are just some of them!"

That has been the accepted und...” A literate educator in the 20th Century is not the same as a literate educator in the 21st Century. Our education system is loaded with many 20th Century holdovers. Most are great people, and good teachers, but they are illiterate in 21st Century terms. We need not cast them aside. They are valuable and revered sources and educators. We need to support them with methods to upgrade their literacies. It must be a priority.
