Get Ready for Hour of Code!

"Hour of Code is an initiative to get students to spend an hour of time learning to code, as part of national CS Education Week, December 9-15. Hopefully, after spending just one hour, they’ll want to keep going with many more hours of code." (Khan Academy)

Next month we are hoping to celebrate CS Education Week from December 9th to 15th. If we can hook our kids in to coding and spark their interest, they have the opportunity to go on to jobs that can earn them $70,000+ per year with many jobs available through nontraditional means (telecommuting, etc.). That's huge! I highly encourage you to take the time, if at all possible, during that week to spark their interest. Khan Academy has tons of resources and even has a complete lesson ready for you to use in your class. You may also want to get them thinking about it with this 60 second promotional video that Khan Academy prepared to get us excited.

As always, let me know what you think about this post and if you plan to participate in the Hour of Code!
