NPI has created a new program opportunity for students and educators to participate in: “Block Coding for Beginners Video Series.” Block coding is generally defined as an element in software programming used to convert text-based software code into a visual block format to minimize potential errors. This approach allows users to drag and drop visual block representations of text-based code into the code editor – allowing the user to create games, applications, and other programs.
The NPI Block Coding for Beginners Video Series is a FREE self-paced, online opportunity to learn block coding and computer science. This series is designed for teachers of all age levels interested in a beginners-level introduction into Code.org’s “CS Fundamentals” and Google’s “CS First”. Participants will enjoy engaging videos and instruction.
