With technology changing every industry on the planet, computing knowledge has become part of a well-rounded skill set. But just half of all schools offer computer science! Dobra je vijest da ste vi na putu to promijeniti. Ukoliko ste prošle godine čuli za Sat Kodiranja, vjerojatno znate da je to bio povijesni trenutak. 100 million students have now discovered how accessible and fun computer science can be by doing just one Hour of Code.
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Learn more at http://HourOfCode.com, try an hour yourself, or host an Hour of Code event to introduce others to the world of computing!
Dok većina nas shvaća koliko je za učenike važno naučiti se snalaziti u današnjem tehnološki orjentiranom svijetu, mnogi učitelji nemaju iskustva sa informatikom i ne znaju gdje započeti. Ovaj je događaj prilika za sve da vide što je informatika zapravo.
Nadamo se da će nadahnuti učenike da nastave učiti. Research also shows that kids can pick up programming concepts before they know how to read and write. U stvari, njihov mozak je otvoreniji učenju računalnih jezika u tom ranom dobu, baš kao i učenju stranih jezika.
Technology is transforming every industry on the planet. In 2015, 7 million openings in the U.S. were in occupations—including art and design—that value coding skills. But 49 percent of schools in the U.S. don't offer computer science. Vrijeme je da se uhvatimo u koštac sa 21-im stoljećem. We know that regardless of what our students do when they grow up, whether they go into medicine, business, politics, or the arts, knowing how to build technology will give them confidence and a competitive edge.
"The Hour of Code is designed to demystify code and show that computer science is not rocket science—anybody can learn the basics," said Hadi Partovi, founder and CEO of Code.org. "Over 100 million students worldwide have tried an Hour of Code. The demand for relevant 21st-century computer science education crosses all borders and knows no boundaries."
Code.org is a 501c3 public non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science and increasing participation by young women and students from other underrepresented groups. Its vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn computer programming. After launching in 2013, Code.org organized the Hour of Code campaign – which has introduced over 100 million students to computer science to date – and partnered with 70 public school districts nationwide to expand computer science programs. Code.org is supported by philanthropic donations from corporations, foundations and generous individuals, including Microsoft, Facebook, Infosys Foundation USA, Amazon, and others.
