Java moves the world and as we celebrate 25 years of Java technologies in 2020, the Java Community Process (JCP) is strongly supporting Java In Education initiative by engaging the Java community leaders from around the world to promote coding in Java in their local community.
We had the privilege to write about our experience teaching kids programming in Java (from even as young as 06 years old) as well as attend one of the #JavaInEducation session/meeting with various Java User Groups (JUG) from around the world, online, on the 07th July 2020. You can read our article on the Oracle Java Community page here.
Oracle Academy – where we fit it?
Oracle Academy provides a wide range of FREE teaching resources, including software, learning resources, practice environments and workshops to get students started and excited to about computing.
The Java workshops introduce beginning learners to object-oriented programming using drag and drop interfaces to create 3D animations and 2D games, and interact with the Finch Robot.
- Getting Started with Java Using Alice is designed for students with little or no programming experience and teaches basic Java programming concepts through developing 3-D animations in Alice 3.1.
- Creating Java Programs with Greenfoot engages students who understand basic programming concepts to create 2-D games using Java.
- Programming the Finch Robot in Greenfoot encourages students who have completed Creating Java Programs with Greenfoot to program an interface that makes the Finch Robot interactive using its light, proximity, and temperature sensors using Java in Greenfoot.
- Programming the Finch Robot in Java encourages students who have completed the Creating Java Programs with Greenfoot and Programming the Finch Robot in Greenfoot to program an interface that makes the Finch Robot interactive using its light, proximity, and temperature sensors using Java.
Oh, Happy Birthday \#Java. Here’s to infinity and beyond in innovating the world.
