Grace Hopper Google Animated Doodle
Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, "We've always done it this way." I try to fight that. That's why I have a clock on my wall that runs counter-clockwise."
Trbute to Grace Hopper
Yes. Today Google Animated Doodle honors computer scientist pioneer Grace Hopper, United Sates Navy Rear Admiral born on December 9, 1906.
Hopper is known for being one of the designers of COBOL, one of the first modern programming languages, which was created in 1959 during the Conference on Data Systems Languages.
It's interesting because it coincides with the Computer Science Education Week which begins today.
Computer Science Education Week (Dec 9 - 15, 2013) is an annual international event dedicated to showing K-12 students the importance of computer science education. The event is organized by the Computing in the Core coalition and Code.org. The week wiil be full of resources and events to help curriculum directors and educators integrate and implement computer science lessons.
Europe Code Week
Like it is interesting because Europe Code week has been celebrated all over the Europe on November 25-30.
So Grace Hopper quote could be my inspirational quote for this post. I believe and practice the change in education. Students welcome changes in our lessons.
