For the most part, they still need convincing that coding is cool. A new partnership between Code.org and Lucasfilm should help. Today, as part of its annual Hour of Code event, Code.org is launching a free online tutorial that prompts kids to build their own games, based on characters in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Star Wars heroines Princess Leia and Rey, a character from the new film, will lead students through the lessons, where they’ll learn to write code to design their own games featuring characters like R2-D2 ad C-3PO.

EdTech Tutorial: How To Use The App ‘Cargobot’ To Teach Programming – #edtech4beginners Cargobot is a free App (on the Appstore) which is excellent for learning how to program. It starts of with tutorials, then simple tasks and moves on to more complex algorithms. How Do I Use Cargobot? First choose the level you want your students to start on. I strongly advise getting them to work through all of the tutorials first. There are some important rules they need to learn i.e. the boxes can not go off the edge of the screen.

Lego's new toy robot teaches kids coding and engineering Lego Mindstorms robots have done wonders getting kids interested in science and programming. Now Lego Education is launching a new robot learning system, dubbed WeDo 2.0, to help teach kids about engineering, technology, and coding. The Lego Education WeDo 2.0 system is a combination of hardware and software that gives elementary school children more than 40 hours of hands-on projects. Lego Education, a division of Denmark’s Lego, unveiled the system at the 2016 International CES, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas this week. The robot itself is a wireless, tablet-ready system that is designed for a younger crowd. The company’s Lego Mindstorms robots are targeted at middle school and high school students, who use them to build robots that can complete tasks and win competitions.

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) 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.

ding for kids is as easy as Pi In an effort to make school-based ICT more than a matter of "MS Word, clip art and web research" a central London primary school held a creative activity day at which 240 children aged five to 11 learnt to write computer code. On 28 September, in one of over 20 different creative activities, Pupils at Paddington's St Saviour's Primary School were provided with 30 Rasberry Pi's and Lego WeDo crocodiles, temporarily transforming their story corner into a programming corner. Using MIT's Scratch programming language, the pupils were first taught how to make "Scratch the Cat" move around their computer screens with simple coding commands.
