computer science education week(dec 9 – 15)

Friday, 6 December 2013

just finished a diversionary, fun javascript project that bounced my name drawn in multicolored circles. the lessons for the project guided me through:

1. an introduction to JavaScript.;

2.  some of the basic coding ingredients such as strings, numbers, and booleans;

3. coding concepts like variables, arrays, and an if/else statement;

4. incremental steps that use the ingredients according to the concepts to cook a program that animated my name.

great learning experience!

turns out this an initiative called Hour of Code for highlighting Computer Science Education Week. finishing the project took me to the code.org homepage where i found other fun learning experiences:

Tutorials for beginners

introductory javascript tutorials

and even “unplugged” computer science!

this one teaches participants the link between symbols and actions, as well as troubleshooting coding bugs. all without an internet connection or a device. am guessing this is something akin to pseudocoding.

there are quite a number of other learning experience options available so go check out Hour of Code at code.org!
