    Why is Computer Science important?

    CSforAll

    “There are nearly half a million open tech jobs in the United States today, and that number is projected to more than double within the next 4 years. These jobs pay 50 percent more than the average private sector job. One recent analysis of 26 million job postings found that nearly half of all the jobs in the top quartile in pay require some coding knowledge or skills.”

    What is #CSforAll?

    #CSforAll is the hashtag used to identify social media posts that contain content and information regarding the White House’s Computer Science for All Initiative.

    How is Hodges University involved with #CSforAll?

    Hodges University partnered with the Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership ( SWFRTP.org) and made a commitment for the 2016-2017 school year to bring computer science to our K-12 classrooms in Lee and Collier counties. We currently have 119 public schools across both counties, and our 2016-2017 commitment was to bring our computer science curriculum to reach a minimum of 2,500 students by June 2017. In the 2016-2017 school year, we made 54 classroom visits at 10 different schools in Lee and Collier counties. Our specific 2016-2017 commitment states:

    • Hodges University will collaborate with the Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership, a non-profit, to directly engage and encourage by June 2017, 2,500 K-12 students and teachers in Southwest Florida to explore computer programming as a problem-solving mechanism for community issues.

    Where can I find all of the #CSforAll commitments?

    What will my child learn in the #CSforAll curriculum?

    We teach students about the importance of learning to code. We utilize a drag-and-drop interface at scratch.mit.edu, which teaches students how to break down tasks into step-by-step instructions to execute a program. We also discuss how coding can help solve community problems and create new solutions.

    Where can I find more resources for my child to learn more about coding?
