Blockly

New and fun games to introduce programming to kids using the Blockly web-based graphical programming environment along with some new twists to the maze and turtle that many of you are familiar with.

Code.org's 20-hour curriculum also uses Blockly.
 
Could not get better news from a teacher:

"This is a game changer for so many kids. I told the kids, 'Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life' and to remember the day they were introduced to the Hour of Code when they become programmers!

I had NO trouble getting kids signed up for the 20-hour computer programming challenge today. They are still high on the #HourOfCode stuff from last week!!"

If you enjoyed the Hour of Code, keep going. Code.org has a new, online course that builds on the Hour of Code:

J'ai testé "hour of code" avec mes élèves en France : c'est extra.
I used "hour of code - MIT" with my students : it's really great.

+Neil Fraser and +Quynh Neutron made a rare public appearance at +The Tech Museum of Innovation for the #HourOfCode .  If you're locally, drop by tomorrow and say hello.
 
Today we had +Google programmer and +Blockly inventor +Neil Fraser, drop by for +Computer Science Education Week. He will return tomorrow from 1:00 -4:00 p.m. to run Blockly Mazes with visitors!

It was a good year for Blockly, thanks to our great community.  We're especially grateful to our +Code.org colleagues, who brought Blockly to more people than we could have alone, and to over a hundred volunteer translators and +Siebrand Mazeland at translatewiki, a project of the +Wikimedia Foundation.
And that's what people did. Blockly has been translated to 43 languages. MIT's App Inventor replaced their previous visualisation (which had interesting bugs) with Blockly. Play-i are building Blockly-controlled robots for children. Other Blockly-controlled robots showed up in a TED talk and in ...

Blockly: Life is too short to learn all programming languages!
I wanted to share this story with you. Lately, I was working on BlocklyDuino: I translated it into Arabic (the RTL works perfectly thanks) and I fixed some bugs and added some features and  I am still working. I shared it with some friends. One day, I got a phone from a friend. He said: Adel, I wanted to share with you this story about your work: "Last day I was with a 6 year kid and I wanted to teach him arduino programming. We did the led exemple, analog read ... It was AMAZING. I never though that we can teach these things that I studied in university to a little kid. Thank you so much for all your effort".
Blockly is the Future!
Thank you so much

+Blockly Yes, the link isn't working.  Christmas break has started at +Rose-Hulman, so I brought the LEDs home and put them on my tree.

I haven't gotten the port forwarding in place so others can access it.

I love using this new version of +App Inventor. It uses +Blockly and the companion app allows you to create apps without installing anything on your computer. Congratulations to +Hal Abelson and the team.

Me too. It's great with blockly and some new features too, like local variables.

A nice story about the use of #Blockly in the #HourOfCode .
Something quite interesting is coming to Kenwood and Carrie Busey this next week; the Hour of Code. You can read a little more from Stephanie Stuart's recent Unit 4 news item. Or you can jump right...

Thanks for the kind words.  You mention that you're a CS major.  Blockly's open source, if you'd like to jump in.  Perhaps you can rewrite the Puzzle app to feature information about your family or community.
