kuler Codeacademy’s Free Kits Help Kids (and Educators) Learn to Code The Codeacademy office in New York Hoping to get students into coding? Enter Codecademy. The New York-based startup, which teaches users how to code through a free, interactive website, is now packaging its popular online lessons into free, bite-sized kits for teachers and librarians to launch their own mini-Codecademies in class or after school. “We know teachers are busy and we wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to do,” says Sasha Laundy, Codecademy’s curriculum strategist and a former physics and neuroscience high school teacher in San Francisco, CA. There are two different types of courses—a game-based one that teaches JavaScript and another that covers HTML and the CSS programming language, in which creators end up creating a website in a final exercise. Several hundred schools around the world have already requested the kits. “We would love to hear how this is working,” she says.

Bak Magazine | Interview with Emrah Yücel (Makale / Article) To this day, I had several opportunities to develop intimate relationships with many cities. First came cities of my country: Ankara and Istanbul, then London which had influenced and inspired me a lot, followed by the city that I left everything behind for to build a new life, New York and lastly the place where I’ve been living more than 12 years, Los Angeles...It is not only the nature what differentiates cities from each other and makes them irrevocable for us. Cities create their identities with the people who produce, consume and make decisions; thus creating a perception in our minds. Dirty Arabs, barbarian Turks, thieving Italians, arrogant French, stingy Jews, loud Americans...

Countries and cities create an identity and brand value with their people, geography, administration and economy. In fact, cities are like protagonists in the movies. 1.

How To Organize Content - Card Sorting Wing06.pdf 文化藝術基金會入口網 Help Me Investigate | Find out the facts InfoDesign Portal: Info Design Resources Learnable Programming Here's a trick question: How do we get people to understand programming? Khan Academy recently launched an online environment for learning to program. It offers a set of tutorials based on the JavaScript and Processing languages, and features a "live coding" environment, where the program's output updates as the programmer types. Because my work was cited as an inspiration for the Khan system, I felt I should respond with two thoughts about learning: Programming is a way of thinking, not a rote skill. Thus, the goals of a programming system should be: to support and encourage powerful ways of thinkingto enable programmers to see and understand the execution of their programs A live-coding Processing environment addresses neither of these goals. Alan Perlis wrote, "To understand a program, you must become both the machine and the program." How do we get people to understand programming? We change programming. Contents A programming system has two parts. The language should provide: Wait.
