Code for an Hour

November 13, 2013


Students code for an hour

Anybody can host an Hour of Code anytime, but the grassroots campaign goal is for tens of millions of students to try an Hour of Code during December 7-13, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. Is it one specific hour? No. You can do the Hour of Code anytime during this week. You're welcome to split up the Hour of Code into multiple sessions so long as your students finish the Hour of Code tutorial. Just do whatever works best for you and your students. (And if you can't do it during that week, do it the week before or after).

Warum Informatik?

Alle Schüler und Schülerinnen sollten die Möglichkeit haben, Informatik zu lernen. Dieses Wissen fördert das Logikverständnis, die Kreativität und die Problemlösekompetenz. Zudem werden schon früh die Grundlagen für den Erfolg im Berufsleben des 21. Jahrhunderts festgelegt. Weitere Statistiken hierzu finden Sie bei Code.org.

Wie kann ich an einer Hour of Code teilnehmen?

Start planning here by reviewing our how-to guide. You can organize an Hour of Code event at your school or in your community — like in an extracurricular club, non-profit or at work. Or, just try it yourself when Dec. 7 arrives.

Wer steht hinter der Hour of Code?

Die Hour-of-Code wird von Code.org organisiert, einer öffentlichen, 501c3 gemeinnützige Organisation, die die stärkere Beteiligung von Frauen und unterrepräsentierten Schülern an Informatik fördert, in dem sie Informatik an mehr Schulen verfügbar macht, und . Eine noch nie dagewesene Koalition von Partnern ist zusammengekommen, um die Hour-of-Code zu unterstützen — darunter Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Boys und Girls Clubs of America und die College Board.

Ich habe keinerlei Programmier-Kenntnisse. Kann ich trotzdem eine Veranstaltung organisieren?

Of course. Hour of Code activities are self-guided. All you have to do is try our current tutorials, pick the tutorial you want, and pick an hour — we take care of the rest. We also have options for every age and experience-level, from kindergarten and up. Start planning your event by reading our how to guide.

Brauche ich einen Computer für jeden einzelnen Teilnehmer?

Nein. Wir haben Hour-of-Code-Tutorials, die auf PCs, Smartphones und Tablets funktionieren, und einige, für die überhaupt kein Computer erforderlich ist! Sie können von überall und mit dem was Sie haben mitmachen.

Hier sind ein paar Optionen:

  • zusammen arbeiten. Forschung zeigt, dass Schüler am besten lernen, in dem sie mit einem Partner arbeiten, einen Computer teilen und kooperieren. Ermutigen Sie Ihre SchülerInnen und Schüler, zweier Teams zu bilden.
  • Verwenden Sie einen Beamer. Wenn Sie einen Beamer und Leinwand und einen internetfähigen Computer haben, kann Ihre gesamte Gruppe eine Hour-of-Code zusammen machen. Videoabschnitte gemeinsam anschauen und die Rätsel oder Fragen abwechselnd lösen und beantworten.
  • Versuchen Sie es offline! Wir bieten Tutorials an, für die überhaupt kein Computer erforderlich ist.

Wie kann ich ein Hour of Code Tutorial machen?

Wenn Sie einen Tutorial-Partner werden möchten, lesen Sie unsere Richtlinien und Anweisungen. Wir würden gerne eine Vielzahl ansprechender Tutorials zur Verfügung stellen, aber das primäre Ziel ist es, das Erlebnis für Schüler und Lehrer, die neu in zur Informatik sind, zu optimieren.

Which activity should I do with high school students?

Our new Star Wars and Minecraft tutorials are great for high schoolers, especially the Star Wars JavaScript version and the free play level on both tutorials. Alternately, we recommend trying one of the beginner tutorials on to start, such as the tutorial with Angry Birds or with Anna and Elsa. A high school student should be able to finish one of these in 30 minutes and can then try a more advanced tutorial in JavaScript, such as Khan Academy or CodeHS.

Wie zählen Sie die Stunden von Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code tracker isn't an exact measurement of usage. We do not count unique student IDs perfectly when tracking participation in the Hour of Code, especially because we don't require students to log in or register. As a result, we both over-count and under-count participants at the same time. Read all the details here.

Why don't I see my dot on the map?

We're so sorry you aren't seeing you event on the Hour of Code map. Because of the tens of thousands of organizers who sign up, the map aggregates the data and displays one point for several events. If you click the number above the map you will be directed to a list of all events by state and can find your event listed there. Additionally, given the thousands of people signing up for the Hour of Code, the map and event list usually takes 48 hours to update. Check back in a few days!

How much can one learn in an hour?

The goal of the Hour of Code is not to teach anybody to become an expert computer scientist in one hour. One hour is only enough to learn that computer science is fun and creative, that it is accessible at all ages, for all students, regardless of background. The measure of success of this campaign is not in how much CS students learn - the success is reflected in broad participation across gender and ethnic and socioeconomic groups, and the resulting increase in enrollment and participation we see in CS courses at all grade levels. Millions of the participating teachers and students have decided to go beyond one hour - to learn for a whole day or a whole week or longer, and many students have decided to enroll in a whole course (or even a college major) as a result.

Besides the students, another "learner" is the educator who gains the confidence after one hour that they can teach computer science even though they may not have a college degree as a computer scientist. Tens of thousands of teachers decide to pursue computer science further, either attending PD or offering follow-on online courses, or both. And this applies to school administrators too, who realize that computer science is something their students want and their teachers are capable of.
