Hour of Code Org Developing New, Free CS Course

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:41 am

By Dian Schaffhauser, THE Journal, the organization behind Hour to Code, will shortly pilot a new middle school/lower high school introductory computer science course that will be free when it’s released. For a short time it’s also taking applications for free professional development to help teachers prepare. The new curriculum, “CS Discoveries,” is an introductory computer science course that is expected to be piloted in spring 2017 and rolled out fully in the summer. The new course embeds the “maker ethos” into its activities, which means students will get the chance to participate in the “physical act of creation” as they learn about the abstract aspects of computer science.
