How To Build A Game Without Coding [Guide & Resources] It used to be that the only people who played games are those who have expensive handheld devices like the GameBoy, or consoles gifted to them by their parents. Now, almost everyone who owns a laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet – from 5-year-olds to my grandma – are playing games. The social stigma of games have changed for the better, from "you’re just wasting your time, games will make you stupid" to one of the major forms of profitable entertainment. Thousands of new games are being published, both by big companies and indie developers – and they won’t be doing that if they are not earning any money, right? But here’s the thing: not all of the game makers know how to code.

CC Syntax Highlighting/Code Completions v1.2 - Sublime Text 2 Hey all, I wrote a new ComputerCraft package for the text editor Sublime Text 2, which builds upon the current Lua one and includes colouring and code completions for all of the CC APIs. It also fixes the issue where the re-indent feature wouldn't work (it wouldn't code-fold at elseifs, or at functions defined in the way shown below), so you are able to use re-indent on screwed up code! It also adds support for declaring functions like this: func = function(arg1, arg2, ...) print(tostring(arg1) .. " " .. tostring(arg2) .. " " .. table.concat({...}, " "))end These functions will now be syntax-highlighted properly, and appear in the functions list when Go To Symbol (command/control+R) is selected

Computational Thinking for Educators - Course What: A free online course helping educators integrate computational thinking into their curriculum Who: Humanities, Math, Science, and Computing educators When: Now through December 20th The goal of this course is to help educators learn about computational thinking (CT), how it differs from computer science, and how it can be integrated into a variety of subject areas. As a course participant, you will increase your awareness of CT, explore examples of CT integrated into your subject areas, experiment with examples of CT-integrated activities for your subject areas, and create a plan to integrate CT into your own curricula.

This Computer Language Is Feeding Hacker Values into Young Minds Last year, I went to Nigeria with Mark Zuckerberg. One of the first stops on the trip was a program that taught kids how to code. When Zuckerberg entered the room, many of the young students had a hard time pulling themselves away from their projects, even to gawk at one of the world’s richest men. Paul Ford: What is Code? A computer is a clock with benefits. They all work the same, doing second-grade math, one step at a time: Tick, take a number and put it in box one. Tick, take another number, put it in box two. Minecraft Education Edition: why it's important for every fan of the game At the densely crowded Bett show, a mammoth education technology conference taking up most of London’s ExCel venue, a vast audience has gathered to watch one particular demonstration. It is Microsoft’s newly announced Minecraft: Education Edition, a special version of the hugely successful building sim, specifically customised for the classroom environment. As the company representative highlights the main features, spectators photograph every single powerpoint slide. Behind the stage there’s a demo area with dozens of laptops running an early version of the new edition – all lined up on tables designed to resemble the game’s simple wooden blocks. There is a constant throng of excitable children, all desperate to play.

Bee-Bot Floor Robot – Teaching Basic Programming A friend gave me a Bee-Bot floor robot on “permanent loan.” She wanted me to figure out some good ways to teach the basics of programming as well as some algebra. I was happy to take on the challenge. Microsoft MakeCode for Minecraft - Microsoft MakeCode Posted May 2nd, 2017 Microsoft MakeCode is a platform that combines the magic of Making with the power of Coding as a more inclusive approach to computer science education. Using a hands-on approach to computing education, Microsoft MakeCode brings computer science to life for all students with fun projects, immediate results, and both block and text editors for learners at different levels. Microsoft MakeCode supports physical computing devices like the micro:bit, and Circuit Playground for students to create robots, digital air guitars and magic wands. Today the Microsoft MakeCode team is happy to announce their beta release for Minecraft: Education Edition. Minecraft: Education Edition is a version of Minecraft that was created specifically for teachers and students as an immersive learning platform.

Chip for Raspberry Pi by Soldering Sunday Chip and his friends, The Pixel Pals, live on Planet M and they are makers. Through their adventures, they learn about different materials and technologies, solve problems, and explore new ideas. 184 very special people helped bring Chip for Arduino to life through Kickstarter and now Chip is here to start a new adventure on the Raspberry PI - and he needs your help. Many electronic kits do not offer anything more than a battery and a LED. Once completed, those kits end up in a drawer, never to be used again.

Apple Releases Swift Playgrounds Coding App for iPad Alongside iOS 10, tvOS 10, and watchOS 3, Apple today officially released Swift Playgrounds, a new app aimed at teaching both children and adults how to code through simple interactive coding exercises. It's meant to make learning to code "easy and fun" for everyone. First announced in June at WWDC, Swift Playgrounds is meant for beginners who have no experience with coding, and it will be deployed in numerous schools around the world as standard curriculum. "Everyone should have the opportunity to learn coding, and we are excited to bring Swift Playgrounds to the next generation of programmers looking for a fun and easy way to explore key coding concepts using real code," said Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering. "More than 100 schools around the world have already committed to adding Swift Playgrounds to their fall curriculum, and we can't wait to see what students create with it."

Scratch is the right place for coding – Code Like A Girl Coding in education is once again gaining more and more popularity in education. There are now too many coding tools, online and device-based, to keep up with. There are so many choices now for students, teachers, or for anyone looking at using coding in education. Why do you want kids to code? – Making things… Learning Things I made this because I think there is an important distinction between learning to code and coding to learn. I think the focus with students doing coding in schools should be coding to learn. Bill Ferriter’s graphic called what do you want kids to do with technology was the inspiration for my graphic. I created this for the same reasons he created his. Coding affords a means through which some incredibly powerful thinking, making and learning can take place.
