I received this in my email and thoroughly support its intent. One question I had was “When is the hour of code” – thinking it was a little like “Earth Hour” with specific date. I include the detail and encourage you to conduct your hour of code. The support material contained in the links below are quality resources and easy to follow.
When is the Hour of Code for 2016? For us in Darwin we will hold an online event on Friday the 9th of December 2016 and we would like to see schools in the NT do the same! Click the read more link below for information on how to sign up and run your own event. We will have volunteers to assist either in person or online. NT folk can contact me for more localised information. This information will also appear on our http://skills2021.educationnt.net site
Anybody can host an Hour of Code anytime, but the campaign goal is for tens of millions of students to try an Hour of Code during December 5-11 2016, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. Is it one specific hour? No. You can do the Hour of Code anytime during this week, or anytime before or after!
