I feel like I’m writing an essay on something like 50 shades of grey when I’m really writing an essay on John Donne lol

Almost all his work is like the fifty shades of grey of the sixteenth century haha.

Oh and my neighbor keeps yelling “Lets go! WOOO!” over and over again, so either someone is into some kinky phrases while engaging in the act of coitus or hes just idk.. I just dont and thats why im here and not doing my essay -___-

Quote

"What if learning to code weren’t actually the most important thing? It turns out that rather than increasing the number of kids who can crank out thousands of lines of JavaScript, we first need to boost the number who understand what code can do. As the cities that have hosted Code for America teams will tell you, the greatest contribution the young programmers bring isn’t the software they write. It’s the way they think. It’s a principle called “computational thinking,” and knowing all of the Java syntax in the world won’t help if you can’t think of good ways to apply it.

Unfortunately, the way computer science is currently taught in high school tends to throw students into the programming deep end, reinforcing the notion that code is just for coders, not artists or doctors or librarians. But there is good news: Researchers have been experimenting with new ways of teaching computer science, with intriguing results. For one thing, they’ve seen that leading with computational thinking instead of code itself, and helping students imagine how being computer savvy could help them in any career, boosts the number of girls and kids of color taking—and sticking with—computer science. Upending our notions of what it means to interface with computers could help democratize the biggest engine of wealth since the Industrial Revolution."

Campaign Aims to Get Girls into Computer Sciences

Diana Navarro loves to code, and she’s not afraid to admit it. But the 18-year-old Rutgers Univ. computer science major knows she’s an anomaly. Writing software to run computer programs in 2014 is — more than ever — a man’s world.”We live in a culture where we’re dissuaded to do things that are technical,” Navarro said. “Younger girls see men, not women, doing all the techie stuff, programming and computer science.”

Less than one percent of high school girls think of computer science as part of their future, even though it’s one of the fastest-growing fields in the U.S. today with a projected 4.2 million jobs by 2020, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. This week Google, with a driverless car and Web-surfing eyeglasses under its belt, has given The Associated Press an early look at how it’s trying to change the gender disparity in its own workforce, and in the pipeline of potential workers, by launching a campaign today called “Made with Code.”
