Computer Science Education Week: December 9-15, 2013
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the impact of computing, the richness of computing careers, and the critical need for computer science (CS) education. CSEdWeek is a call to action to inspire students and colleagues about CS education, to employ new and better strategies for engagement, and to connect with the broader community about the need for and value of CS education.
The Hour of Code
Code.org is launching the Hour of Code as part of the annual CSEdWeek, a celebration to encourage interest in the field and show that anyone can learn the basics. Code.org will host a variety of hour-long tutorials on the CSEdWeek website for students. Many of the tutorials are compatible with tablets and smartphones, and there are "unplugged" lessons available as well.
