Star Wars: programma una storia

Star Wars: programma una storia
Hi I'm Kathleen Kennedy and I'm the producer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Today you'll be working with one of our stars, BB-8. BB-8 is a spherical droid. Everything he does and every movement that he makes is controlled by computer software. Hi, I'm Rachel Rose. In the next hour, we're going to build our own Star Wars game that will teach you the basic concepts of programming. Your screen is split into three parts. This middle area is the toolbox and each of these blocks is a command that BB-8 can understand. The white space on the right is called the work space and this is where we're going to build our program. If I drag the moveLeft(); block to our workspace, what happens? And what if I want BB-8 to do something after the moveLeft(); block? If you ever want to delete a block, just remove it from the stack and drag it back into the toolbox. After you hit run, you can always hit the reset button to get BB-8 back to the start.

Teaching Coding: Where Do You Start? EdSurge Newsletters Receive weekly emails on edtech products, companies, and events that matter. Soon after I wrote my last article on Edsurge “Where Does Tech-ed Belong in Edtech?,” advocating for the need for computer science education, there was a surprising amount of activity in this area--from President Obama’s interview to the much talked about video. The timing of my article was purely coincidence, though I wish I could say otherwise!

Brush-style typography has been forgotten for quite a long time, but as happens with all design trends, is currently enjoying a revival in popularity. 15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) According to, 90 percent of U.S. schools are not teaching any computer science. Eyebrows were raised in 2013 as the U.K. passed a plan to educate every child how to code. In 2014, Barack Obama made history as the first U.S. president to program a computer. Yet critics claim that often only the more affluent schools offer computer science courses, thus denying minorities potential to learn the skills required by the 1.4 million new jobs that will be created during the next ten years. In my opinion, parents of every student in every school at every level should demand that all students be taught how to code. They don't need this skill 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.
