Koodikoulu. The Programming/Coding on a Chromebook Master List : chromeos. 10 places where anyone can learn to code. Teens, tweens and kids are often referred to as “digital natives.” Having grown up with the Internet, smartphones and tablets, they’re often extraordinarily adept at interacting with digital technology. But Mitch Resnick, who spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet, is skeptical of this descriptor. Sure, young people can text and chat and play games, he says, “but that doesn’t really make you fluent.”

Mitch Resnick: Let's teach kids to code Fluency, Resnick proposes in this TED Talk, comes not through interacting with new technologies, but through creating them. The former is like reading, while the latter is like writing. He means this figuratively — that creating new technologies, like writing a book, requires creative expression — but also literally: to make new computer programs, you actually must write the code.

The point isn’t to create a generation of programmers, Resnick argues. At Codecademy, you can take lessons on writing simple commands in JavaScript, HTML and CSS, Python and Ruby.

PARIS — École 42 might be one of the most ambitious experiments in engineering education. It has no teachers. No books. No MOOCs. No dorms, gyms, labs, or student centers. And yet it plans to turn out highly qualified, motivated software engineers, each of whom has gone through an intensive two- to three-year program designed to teach them everything they need to know to become outstanding programmers. The school, housed in a former government building used to educate teachers (ironically enough), was started by Xavier Niel. He is also irrepressibly upbeat, smiling and laughing almost nonstop for the hour that he led a tour through École 42 earlier this week. Niel started École 42 with a 70 million euro donation.

Aiheesta on jo julkaistu fiksuja kirjoituksia, joten tiivistän omat ajatukseni kahdeksaan teesiin. Lopussa kolme vinkkiä, joilla opettaja kuin opettaja pääsee kärryille. Koulussa ei koodata poliisille uutta tietojärjestelmää, vaan luultavasti jotain tällaista. Kuva: Митчел Резник, Wikimedia Commons, CC BY-SA TVT ja koodaus ovat kaksi eri asiaa. Kuluttajaksi kasvattaminen ei riitä. Koodaus ei ole vieras kieli. Koodaus on nykyajan maanviljelystaito. Teknologia ei ole tulevaisuutta, vaan totta jo nyt. Kaikkien ei tarvitse koodata, mutta ohjelmallinen ajattelu on perustaito. Avatkaa kaikki konepellit. Opettajan ei tarvitse koodata. Kolme vinkkiä opettajalle (päivitetty lokakuussa 2015).

Is learning to code software a valuable skill? Is it one that prepares people to join the workforce of the future? On the one hand, the popularity of computer science as a college major and the proliferation of coding bootcamps suggest the answer is decidedly "yes.

", a non-profit that encourages education and diversity in computer science, currently invites visitors to its homepage to join over a million others in agreeing with the following statement: "Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science" On the other hand, some endorse the headline on Kevin Maney's May 29th article at Newsweek: "Computer Programming Is A Dying Art," one that will soon be taken over by smarter, more "brain-like" computers. So, perhaps the answer as to whether you should learn to code is "don't bother. " Maney's timeline may be optimistic but the prospect isn't crazy. In his article, Maney writes: Programming languages come and go. 7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills.

It's hard to imagine a single career that doesn't have a need for someone who can code. Everything that "just works" has some type of code that makes it run. Coding (a.k.a. programming) is all around us. That's why all the cool kids are coding . . . or should be. Programming is not just the province of pale twenty-somethings in skinny jeans, hunched over three monitors, swigging Red Bull. Not any more! If you're concerned that that a) elementary school students don't have the ability to code, b) there's no room in the curriculum, and c) you don't possess coding chops to teach programming skills, throw out those worries.

In no particular order, we have listed all the coding apps that are appropriate for young learners.

Pressing in create mode pulls up the Popit Menu. The main functions essential to creation that appear in the Popit Menu are the Goodies Bag, Tools Bag, Sticker Menu and the Popit Cursor. Levelcraft Understanding these concepts is easy, but applying each and every one of them into unique and original ideas can be more difficult. Make sure there's not too many complicated things in one small area, or else the entire game will freeze and will lose all changes. The World You need a basic idea of what the world your level takes place in is like so that you can model your level after those ideas and so when you publish it sackthings will like the setting.

CodeWorld Rises Again! | Sententia cdsmithus. About three years ago, I started work on an idea about technology-based math education. The idea was to get middle school students to work passionately on using mathematics to create things, by: Doing their own original, creative work, instead of following instructions or reaching set answers.Getting instant feedback 24 hours a day, so they can tinker and learn in a self-directed way.Building confidence by working on their own ideas, inspiring pride and excitement.Experiencing how concepts from geometry, algebra, and physics can be springboards for creativity.Becoming creators, rather than just consumers, of technology. That’s a lofty set of goals, but it was very successful. In the 2011-2012 school year, I taught a small class of six students, two to three hours per week.

We had an awesome time. They built their own computer games throughout the year. Students didn’t really think of what they were doing as math. Over the last week and a half, though, that’s changed! Getting Started. Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python. This course is the first of a two-course sequence: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python, and Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science.

Together, they are designed to help people with no prior exposure to computer science or programming learn to think computationally and write programs to tackle useful problems. Some of the people taking the two courses will use them as a stepping stone to more advanced computer science courses, but for many it will be their first and last computer science courses. Since these courses may be the only formal computer science courses many of the students take, we have chosen to focus on breadth rather than depth. The goal is to provide students with a brief introduction to many topics so they will have an idea of what is possible when they need to think about how to use computation to accomplish some goal later in their career.

Programming for Everybody. Creative Coding — Monash University. Learning to program is no longer just for computer specialists and software developers. People from many different backgrounds now want to understand the basics of programming, because it’s both fun and an increasingly valuable skill. One of the most exciting ways to learn programming is through authoring your own creative programs. Known as “creative coding,” this growing field uses computer software as a medium to develop original creative expression.

So if you’re an artist, designer, architect or musician who’s interested in how you can expand your creative skills, or even a computer programmer looking to work in creative applications, you will find this free online course extremely useful. Explore the concepts and skills of creative coding Throughout the course we’ll help you develop practical programming concepts and skills by exploring creative ideas and challenges.

Learn with professional artists and designers The course is very different from technical courses on programming. Koodaustunti. 2014 Ohjelmoinnin perusteet ja ohjelmoinnin jatkokurssi | MOOC. Learn to code | Codecademy. Linux creator Linus Torvalds: I do not believe everybody should learn to code | VentureBeat | Dev | by Harrison Weber. Even Linus Torvalds, one of the most influential computer scientists alive today, doesn’t believe everybody should learn to code. Torvalds, the creator of Linux and Git (a version control system for dev teams, and the technology behind GitHub), opened up for an unusually lengthy Q&A this weekend.

Now 44, Torvalds shaped modern computing, and yet his views contrast recent learn-to-code campaigns like Codecademy’s Code Year. When asked about the future of computer science education, Torvalds said, “I actually don’t believe that everybody should necessarily try to learn to code. I think it’s reasonably specialized, and nobody really expects most people to have to do it. It’s not like knowing how to read and write and do basic math.” While enthusiasm for computer science is high — even President Obama is into it — many developers have reacted negatively to learn-to-code campaigns.

"Netti ei toimi", jokeltaa koodikerhon vetäjän Marko Klemetin 2-vuotias tytär, Iiris. Hän työntää tablettiaan Jennalle, 10 ja Erikalle, 11. Josko he auttaisivat?

"Täh? Iiris puhuu netistä jo nyt! " päivittelee Jenna. Hän tietää verkosta ja ohjelmista hieman enemmän kuin kaksivuotias. Jenna kun on käynyt Espoossa Perkkaanpuiston koulun koodikerhoa, vapaaehtoisesti. Perkkaanpuisto antaa esimakua syksystä 2016. Seiskaluokat aloittavat 2017, kasit 2018 ja ysit 2019. Se oli melkoista salatiedettä. Nyt puhaltavat eri tuulet. "Ohjelmoinnin osaaminen on 2000-luvulla kansalaisen oikeus ja velvollisuus", sanoo Linda Liukas. Ohjelmoinnin tulo voi hermostuttaa joitain opettajia. "Kirja on ensiapulaukku ja lunttilappu ohjelmointiin", sanoo Mykkänen, joka oli HS:n Nyt-liitteen esimies vielä vähän aikaa sitten. Mutta miten opettaja pärjää? Liukas ja Mykkänen tapasivat aikoinaan seminaarissa. Viime syksynä 55 virolaista peruskoulua eli joka kuudes koulu lähti mukaan kokeiluun.
