Why an hour of code isn’t enough [Links]

"[E]ven students who don’t grow up to be software engineers will live in a world saturated with computers and need a basic grasp of how they work."

An ‘Hour of Code’ isn’t enough [Boston Globe]: “Computing skills are valuable. The average US worker in software publishing earns over $44 an hour, more than double the $20 average across all private industries. … But even students who don’t grow up to be software engineers will live in a world saturated with computers and need a basic grasp of how they work.”

How to move professional development forward [EdSurge]: “But to suggest that video versus in-person PD is the real play here totally ignores what is happening back in reality. A reality where we merge online and real-life everyday through the act of sharing.”

Maryland works to make STEM awareness take root in high school [Baltimore Business Journal]: “Representatives from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the Food and Drug Administration, to name a few, stood at the head of classrooms in an effort to convince students of the real-world benefits of science, technology, engineering and math school work.”
