Don’t just play on your phone – programme it!

So said Barack Obama and frankly, if it’s good enough for him, it’s probably good enough for us. To see the US President support high level learning in such an open way is fantastic. To support coding is even better. We need people who can develop the future. We cannot just sit here and wait for someone else to provide it nor should we be expecting our students to be like that. Coding creates very logical thinking and then opportunities to create and change the world. Someone wrote all the code for WordPress so I can blog and tell you this. Someone wrote the code for ATM banking and the code which runs the terminals at checkouts. We really have to think differently and look at what students need to participate in and change their world. Someone writes the codes for games and it is a multibillion dollar industry. The Hour of Code means you can organise a one hour coding event during December or you can participate in one. For Australian schools which haven’t got onto this we have now come to the end of the school year and will have to set our sights on next year. The Hour of Coding can be a MOOC where everyone is online learning. So far, 73 million people. You can participate as a single unit by signing up for an event or using the tutorials. Basically, for this to follow through the whole concept needs to have a home on the Net where people can participate in the learning at anytime from anywhere until the next lot of online events occurs.
