Hour of Code for Learning Colleagues

TO: Learning Colleagues
FROM: Elliott Masie, Host & Curator
RE: Hour of Code for Learning Professionals at Learning 2018

It is time for Learning Professionals to take an “Hour of Code” and learn more about the changing world of technology and code.

Learning 2018 is working with Bloomberg to offer event participants an “Hour of Code”(tm) experience (https://hourofcode.com/us). Bloomberg is a global information and technology company focused on delivering data, news and analytics as well as building innovative products and solutions needed for the 21st century

Over the past couple of years, Bloomberg has launched initiatives to bring coding skills to traditionally non-coding areas of the business, specifically around the skills needed for advanced data analytics and data science. One of the opportunities Bloomberg has leveraged is the “Hour of Code”, which we will offer as an experience to Learning 2018 participants!

Originally developed for K-12 students around the world, “Hour of Code” is working to address the fact that fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented in computer science classes, and in the tech industry. Hour of Code hopes to change this.

At Learning 2018, Bloomberg will facilitate several opportunities for participants to experience Hour of Code activities in which they can learn and practice a variety of coding languages, plus learn how to run “Hour of Code” experiences in their own organizations.  Details: Click Here.

Join us at Learning 2018, with keynotes including Former First Lady Laura Bush, Author Dan Pink, and Leslie Odom, Jr (Star of Hamilton) and over 140 sessions on Learning Changes.
