Educational Technology

Technology that aid in education involve computers, tablets, smart boards, ect. Through experience, I use a variety of educational technology in tech support. For my independent project, I am using a variety of technology tools for web development. On the mac computer, I use programs such as Brackets, Text wrangler, Aptana Studio for programming and designing websites. I use HTML, CSS, and Javascript to build websites with the aid of these software. I use YouTube tutorials to learn how to use these programs and code academy to learn how to use the coding languages. There are a lot of educational sources online for students to use to learn various topics in computer science.

Computer Science in education is spreading all around the world. One way that computer science awareness is spreading is with the Hour of Code. This week is Computer Science Education Week and teachers around the world are teaching an Hour of Code. The Hour of Code is a hour long introduction to computer science and aims to enroll 10 million student to participate. They provide several different tutorials such as learning code to create apps, websites, and more.
