Khan Academy: Hour of Code
« on: December 09, 2013, 08:46:36 AM »
Off topic, but I thought some might find this interesting.

"When I first started Khan Academy I managed to pull the website together with some pretty rusty coding skills I had picked up in college. I realize now that I was one of the lucky ones - 90% of students don't get the opportunity to learn any type of computer coding while they're at school. That's crazy when you consider how much of our lives require technology.
This week over 5 million students will participate in the Hour of Code - and try out coding for the first time. I want to ask you to check out our pre-built lesson and send your students there to try it out - at the end of the hour, they'll have coded their very own greeting card to send to someone this holiday season"
