Black Girls CODE is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You | PolicyMic

Black Girls CODE is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You | PolicyMic | Tech Teens | Scoop.it
Black Girls CODE, a San Francisco-based organization that creates opportunities for young women of color to learn how to code, engineer, and build new technologies, is looking to expand to 10 other U.S. cities. The heavily debated and discussed Common Core (the new federal mandate of K-12 learning standards), with its emphasis on reading and writing, does not interpret coding as a 21st century literacy. Therefore, many schools are cutting technology programs at a time when they should be augmented.Black Girls CODE, an organization operating outside of a traditional school structure, needs continued public support to ensure that young women are prepared with the skills that will help them to build their futures. Digital Divide, a term established in the late 20th century to describe the inequities in technological access between white and black communities, was redefined by Dr. Adam J. Banks in his book Race, Rhetoric, and, Technology. Although Dr. Banks' seminal text was written before the proliferation of smartphones and tablet technologies, it presupposes a future where students have access to BYOD (bring your own device) technology in their classrooms. Banks identified the chasm between computer users and computer programmers as the great 21st century divide for people of color. It is not enough to have access to computing technologies— students need to understand how to build them.Women of color are particularly behind in the movement toward building a more digital future. According to the National Center for Women and Informational Technology, Latinas comprise only 1% of the computing workforce. African-American and Asian-American women fare only marginally better at 4%.Click headline to read more--

How about some "Coder Dojos" in Greece! Ireland’s Coder Dojo movement

How about some "Coder Dojos" in Greece! Ireland’s Coder Dojo movement | Tech Teens | Scoop.it
The Coder Dojo movement, which is inspiring young people all over Ireland to learn about software programming, plus languages such as Scratch and Java, has now unleashed its computer programming nurturing talents in the UK. Codo Dojo itself was set up by XING co-founder and partner of SOS Ventures Bill Liao and 18-year-old Irish technology entrepreneur James Whelton of Disruptive Developments. Despite having only been set up in the past few months, the Coder Dojo movement has already held 'dojos' in Cork, Dublin and Limerick. And, now, the UK. It is only a matter of time before it spreads further to the rest of Europe and potentially the US. By holding sessions in schools, the not-for-profit network of computer clubs, or dojos, aims to teach kids to code, as the world embraces the digital economy.
