Learning Continues Across the whole School

December 7 - 8, 2017

from 7:50 am to 12:10 pm

Computer Coding and Literacy

Dear KIS Community,

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.

But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.

That’s why our school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.

Our Hour of Code is making a statement that KIS International School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community.

This is a chance to change the future of CS education in Bangkok.

See http://hourofcode.com/us for details, and help spread the word.

Sincerely,

Mr. Niko, Mr. Eric, Dr. Puk and ICT staff

KIS International School
