What’s The Impact of An Hour of Coding?

28 Apr

Have you thought about getting your kids into computer programming at an early age? Code.org suggests that just an hour of coding can change the direction of student and push them into a career of technology. The site says, “The Hour of Code is at its core not about learning a brand new skill in just one hour. One hour isn’t enough to learn how to code. It’s about increasing access to computer science by breaking stereotypes and opening doors. Somebody may learn programming concepts like loops, conditionals, or basic debugging through the Hour of Code. But a much more important goal is for students and teachers to learn that computer science is fun — you can start at any age, in any classroom, even if you don’t have a computer.”

Discover how to get your child into computer science.
