codeorg

A national campaign to learn, teach, and promote web/digital literacy.

Code.org is a public 501c3 dedicated to integrating computer science into classrooms and increasing the participation of women and underrepresented students. The site provides both open source curricula and works to create awareness around the “fourth literacy.”

Perhaps most well-known for the “Hour of Code” campaign, Code.org creates fun, accessible, and brief games and projects students can follow intuitively. Educators can use the site for beginners, for JavaScript, or even as a resource for lo-fi (projects requiring no technology) teaching activities for computer science.

All curriculum resources and tutorials Code.org authors are free to use under a Creative Commons license. That means anyone can access an Hour of Code activity or a 20+ hour introduction to computer science to use in the classroom.
