"Don’t Just Play on Your Phone, Program It"

This week is Computer Science Education Week, or “CSEdWeek,” an annual campaign highlighting the importance of learning computer science.

This week is Computer Science Education Week, or “CSEdWeek,” an annual campaign highlighting the importance of learning computer science. CSEdWeek is held in recognition of the birthday of computer science pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, widely known for popularizing the idea of “debugging” a computer—a phrase inspired by her team’s removal of an actual moth from a relay in a Harvard Mark II computer in 1947. (Its remains can be found in the group’s log book at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.) This year, non-profit group Code.org is driving CSEdWeek activities in more than 150 countries around the world and sponsoring an “Hour of Code” campaign that encourages all students to devote an hour this week to getting a taste of computer programming.

The ability to write computer software—to code—is an important skill. It moves people from being consumers of technology to creators of it. An understanding of coding helps people learn new strategies for solving problems and harness the power of computers to realize their own visions, whatever they may be. Everyone—scientists, fashion designers, doctors, journalists, lawyers, musicians, students—can benefit from a greater understanding of how to use computing.

Computer literacy is important for success in today’s digital economy, yet many American schools still view computer science education as an exotic elective. Only a handful of states allow computer science courses to count as math or science credits toward high school graduation requirements. AP Computer Science is taught in just 10% of our high schools, whereas the UK recently added computer science to its curriculum, teaching CS to all students from ages 5 to 17. China teaches all of its students one year of computer science. The CS 10K Initiative, supported by the National Science Foundation, is working to build curricula and course materials to support educators’ needs so they can more effectively teach computer science.

Take some time this week to introduce yourself to computer science. Many companies, schools, and non-profit organizations—including Khan AcademyCodecademy, MIT’s Scratch andAppInventor projects, and Code.org itself—are making free, hour-long coding tutorials available. We suspect you will find coding fun, creative, and intellectually challenging. With a little practice you too will be able to create your own games, websites, and applications.

For some extra inspiration, see above for a message from President Obama on the importance of computer science in America, as well as Code.org’s celebrity-packed CSEdWeek kickoff video.

오바마 대통령의 명 담화문 "Don't just play on your phone; program it!"소프트웨어 인재양성 프로젝트

친절한 조이 이웃추가 | 2015. 3. 13. 16:47
 앱으로 보기 

작년 9월 23일 교육부(교육인적자원부)는

초,중등학교에서 소프트웨어 교육이 크게 강화되는 내용이 포함된

'2015년 문이과통합과정 개정안'에 대해 발표했는데요,

오는 2017년부터 초,중등학교에는 컴퓨터과학 및 컴퓨터 소프트웨어에 대한 기본소양을 기르는

'소프트웨어' 과목을 정식으로 채택한다고 합니다.


인도나 이스라엘의 경우는

독창적인 소프트웨어를 많이 만들어 내는 나라들이기도 한데요,

이는 소프트웨어 인재를 양성하기 위해 아주 오래전부터 국가적으로 시행되어온 교육정책의 결과입니다.


버락 오바마 대통령은 2013년 연간 캠페인(the annual campaign)담화문에서

'이제는 모든 미국인들이 기술의 소비자가 아니라 창조자가 되자'라는 의미의

일명, [Hour of code]​ 캠페인을 지지하는 담화문을 발표합니다.


이 담화문은'Computer Science Education Week(CSEdWeek)' 즉,  '컴퓨터과학교육주간'을 정해서

미국의 학생들(이 담화문에서는 학생 뿐 아니라 회사 및 각 분야 전문가도 포함하고 있음)이

컴퓨터 과학의 중요성을 인식하고,

'직접 컴퓨터 프로그램 코딩을 하게하자'라는 의미에서 발표된 것입니다.


이 캠페인은 현재 150여개국의 지원을 받고 있다고 합니다.

페이스북 창업자 마크 주커버그도 보이네요.

(한글 자막이 보입니다.)

버락 오바마 미 대통령의 'Hour of Code' 지지 담화문 전문

Hi, everybody.

This week I'm proud to join the students, teachers, businesses, and nonprofit organizations 
taking big new steps to support computer science in America's schools. 
Learning these skills isn't just important for your future; 
it's important for our country's future. 
If we want America to stay on the cutting edge, 
we need young Americans like you to master the tools and technology 
that will change the way we do just about everything. 
That's why I'm asking you to get involved.
Don't just buy a new videogame; make one. 
Don't just download the latest app; help design it. 
Don't just play on your phone; program it. 
No one's born a computer scientist, but with a little hard work and some math and science, 
just about anyone can become one.

This week is your chance to give it a shot. 
And don't let anyone tell you you can't. 
Whether you're a young man or a young woman, 
whether you live in a city or a rural area, 
computers are going to be a big part of your future. 
And if you’re willing to work and study hard, that future is yours to shape.
Thanks, everybody.

"Don't just buy a new videogame; make one. 
Don't just download the latest app; help design it. 
Don't just play on your phone; program it!"

"신상 비디오 게임을 사려고만 하지 말고 직접 만들어 보라.

(스마트폰) 최신앱을 다운 받으려고만 하지 말고 직접 설계를 해보라.

스마트폰을 갖고 놀려고만 하지 말고 직접 프로그래밍 해보라!"

이제는 대한민국도 'IT 소비국'이 아니라, 'IT 창조국'으로 거듭나야 하고
소프트웨어에 대한 인식의 대전환이 필요한 때인 것 같습니다.
