2014 CSEdWeek, Hour of Code, and (new!) Georgia Day of Code
CSEdWeek is December 8-14 this year, and Code.org is repeating their Hour of Code activity. The idea of Hour of Code is to get millions of students to try out coding. See more on CSEdWeek here, and on Hour of Code here. This year, Andy Stefik’s accessible programming language Quorum is included in an Hour of Code activity: http://quorumlanguage.com/documents/hourofcode/part1.php
Here in Georgia, the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) in cooperation with other groups in Georgia are promoting a “Day of Code” on December 10. See here for more on that, including information on prizes available for classes and schools.
