The school of my children is amazing and I know that much of their work lies on my. So that’s why I try to help every time I can. That’s why, besides helping in football (Argentinian topic) and play the guitar for the kids, now I have the opportunity to share something closer to my dayly basis with the children.
HOUR OF CODE, a global initiative to help children learn about the fabulous world of coding / programming. The truth is that behind this program you can find videos with some celebrities promoting the program such as Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg… that’s great.
The bases are also very simple: from different sources like http://code.org/, there many materials shared for everyone. The main idea in the week from 8 to 14 December, there will be some ambassadors to share an hour with the children and show them a little bit about the world of developers.
That’s it: games on paper for the youngest, apps in development for young people such as Kodu or Scratch, etc. Is awesome, the only thing you have to do is contact a center of studies and propose this “hour of code”
Microsoft Spain also cooperates and supports this initiative, with lots of information and support inhttp://msdn.microsoft.com/es-ES/dn876734
