New Code.org Video Released

Code.Org has just released a new video promoting computer science that may be especially effective for creating broader public awareness among policy leaders and parents.

The video, Code - the new literacy is shorter than the previous Code.org video and is focused specifically on the importance of computer science knowledge.

The video includes new footage from high tech industry leaders such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg and Code.org founder Hadi Parvoti notes that, like the previous release from Code.org, it is intended as an advocacy tool to help raise public consciousness about how critical these skills are for all students.

"This short 2-min video is focused on computer science education as a matter of literacy. It is a great tool for engaging administrators and policy makers to pitch the case for teaching CS to all students, especially at an early age."

Code.org has stepped up to take a leadership role on state-level advocacy to ensure that all students have access to rigorous computer science in schools. CSTA is part of a community of CS education organizations working with Code.org on this critical initiative.

Thank you for making the effort to go over this, Personally i think strongly about this and love learning more about this subject. If at all possible, while you gain expertise, can you mind upgrading your site with increased information? It's very useful for me personally.

I agree that computer science knowledge is essential to build important skills. With important figures such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, this should definitely raise important awareness
