Interested in helping your kids take their first step in computer programming? During our school district’s monthly technology advisory committee we learnt about an educational program called “The Hour of Code“. This has generated high praise and excitement amongst kids and parents. The program teaches the basic concepts of Computer Science with drag and drop programming. Its delivered through game-like, self-directed tutorials starring video lectures by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies. You and the kids can learn about repeat-loops, conditionals, and basic algorithms at hourofcode.com/co.
