"December 9-15, Computer Science Education will host the Hour Of Code–a one hour introduction to students on coding, programming, and why they should love it. It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator. They’ll include a variety of self-guided tutorials that anybody can do, on a browser, tablet, or smartphone. No experience needed. Watch this “how to” video for more information."

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Preparing for STEM Lessons on Coding with Hopscotch for iPad

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Preparing for STEM Lessons on Coding with Hopscotch for iPad | Programming | Scoop.it

"This evening I’ve been playing with the free iPad app “Hopscotch,” which I’m planning to use for a four part / two week introductory unit on coding on the iPad with my 4th and 5th grade STEM students. (@iesSTEM) I’ve worked quite a bit with Scratch software from MIT, but this is my first time to “seriously play” with Hopscotch. Hopscotch is similar to Scratch, as a block-based (or icon-based) programming environment, but it is MUCH more limited with fewer available coding blocks. Despite these limitations, it appears to be a great app to use when introducing students to coding. And, it’s FREE! Since I have an iPad cart to use with students in my STEM classroom, but not full-day access to one of our school’s Windows-based computer labs, an iPad-based coding solution / app like Hopscotch is preferable for me now over Scratch. (Scratch is still flash-based, so although it’s web-based it doesn’t work completely on iPads. I’ve tried using Scratch on flash-friendly iPad browser apps like iSwifter and Puffin, but haven’t found the experience very good… yet.)"

7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills - Edutopia

7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills - Edutopia | Programming | Scoop.it

"It's hard to imagine a single career that doesn't have a need for someone who can code. Everything that "just works" has some type of code that makes it run. Coding (a.k.a. programming) is all around us. That's why all the cool kids are coding . . . or should be. Programming is not just the province of pale twenty-somethings in skinny jeans, hunched over three monitors, swigging Red Bull. Not any more! The newest pint-sized coders have just begun elementary school."

"A parent stopped me during a recent social at our school to tell me how excited her son was to program an app.  While we aren't programming apps in class, I'd sure like to learn how!  A friend of mine and I have been discussing the idea about creating a Coding Club at our school.  We will not start out on iOS development but rather coding for computer programming.  I'm not sure if we will start with Ruby, Java, C+, HTML, etc... I have a few friends who are fluent in several languages.  I'm counting on their advice and guidance.  I know this will happen, soon (if we believe it will happen - it will), and I'm very excited about the potential this will have for students.

You need to have some basic understanding of iMovie and here's some info that might help.  Remember though, the students will often know more and can work it out for themselves, you don't have to be the expert.  You need to plan for and allow them to use video as an alternative way of expressing their understanding.

Top 20 Programming Languages currently being used

Top 20 Programming Languages currently being used | Programming | Scoop.it

This month, JavaScript re-entered the top 10 of the TIOBE index. It is still a bit of a miracle why this ubiquitous language is not yet part of the top 5. JavaScript is the glue of client-side web page programming nowadays. But JavaScript is currently expanding its application domain. Node.js has made JavaScript a server-side programming language and the amount of Javascript based games (mostly browser based) is increasing.

The biggest news here must surely be the continual decline of C++ over the last few years and something that we have seen as being very pronounced since the beginning of the year. PHP is really on the up and this has definitely been reflected in the requirements that we have seen. 

Chris Lees's comment, June 21, 2013 7:56 PM
Thanks for sharing. As a long-term PHP developer and a newly-minted Node.js fan I'm really pleased to hear that old fashioned attitudes towards new technologies are starting to change. I predict the net result will be more innovation delivered faster.
