Educators can utilize multiple education platforms, and students learn both within and outside the classroom. Cybersecurity Games: While completing formal coursework can be a great way to learn to program, playing online games can also allow users to learn programming skills. This is an interactive, fun way for students to learn the foundational skills necesaary for a career in cybersecurity. Click on any of the games below to start learning today. Programming Resources: From designing web pages to building mobile applications to developing databases, students learn to program in a variety of ways. Building Blocks, Robots, and Video Games: One day students are playing a game and the next they are developing it!

According to Code.org, 90 percent of parents in the U.S. want their children to learn computer science—it will be crucial for many jobs in the near future—but only 40 percent of schools teach it.

Critics claim that it is mainly the more affluent schools that offer computer science courses, thus denying those who attend poorer schools the chance to learn necessary skills. A focus on STEM is not enough: Code.org also reports that while 70 percent of new STEM jobs are in computing, only 7 percent of STEM graduates are in computer science. It is imperative that savvy schools begin to focus some STEM resources on computer science and programming. In my opinion, parents of every student in every school at every level should demand that all students be taught how to code. They need this skill not because they’ll all go into it as a career—that isn’t realistic—but because it impacts every career in the 21st-century world. Pear Deck. Made with Code_Google.

Codecademy Releases Its First Educational App, A.K.A. My New Subway Time Killer

I threw the “really” in there to soften the blow, but the fact is, I straight up don’t know how to do it. I started learning at one point in middle school, but my high school didn’t push CS, and by college I spent all of my waking hours writing for the student newspaper or reading books written by dead white guys. So it just never happened. But it’s on my to-do list. I swear. Today Codecademy made its first foray into the app space and released an intro to coding course designed to take less than an hour to complete.

The launch was timed to coincide with Computer Science Education Week, one of the goals of which is to get 10 million students in the U.S. to take an hour of coding. Codecademy for iPhone will eventually be its own independent learning platform, CEO and founder Zach Sims said. Hour of Code Offers Coding Tutorials from Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, Etc. Learn.
