Hour of Code - Now We are Talking!


After my post on the need to rebrand STEM yesterday, today I discovered Hour of Code. What a difference a day makes! I had heard bits and pieces about this back in October but had missed the massive momentum that the movement has gained in a very short time. Not sure how I missed it but very glad I found it. The key is that this effort is reaching students in large numbers and from every indication having an impact not just on kids but on teachers and hopefully decision makers on boards of education all over this country. Even as I sit here writing this blog I have just received e-mail from Codecademy promoting their new iOS app for Hour of Code. This is a very important experiment, let's all support it and see where it takes us!
