Coding in the Common Core
From July 9:
There's been significant talk about "coding" lately — from the second annual "Hour of Code" event hosted in December by Code.org, to countries like Denmark and England incorporating computer programming into their curriculum. Here in the U.S., there are several ways in which computer programming activities support the Common Core State Standards. When students use tools such as Code Studio, Scratch, and Tynker, what they're doing is called programming. Programming is about the logic that goes into building a program. The blocks already exist — they just have to be placed in the correct order to get the program to work. This is the beginner level that most college computer programming students take.
