Interesting Links 19 September 2016

The big news last week was the launch of the CSforAll Consortium  with over 180 members committed to K12 CS Education. That was not all I picked up last week though. I’m pleased to have a good bunch of links to share with you today.  Let’s start with some CSTA news in case you missed it!
Have you seen the new @csteachersorg Standards Video  Computer Science Teachers Association standards announcement video.
ACM and the CSTA announced new awards for teaching excellence in computer science funded by the Infosys Foundation. Very exciting! Are you a good candidate? Check it out soon.

Interested in hosting a Family Code Night? there is a free kit for elementary schools available online. Sets start people thinking about (and in) code early.
  There is a new drone programming course for schools, Drones 101 from @gotynker I think I need a drone. Are you using one or more with students?
Robot Reinforces Learning Interesting article on the Blo0g @ACM  about “Quinn provides feedback to the students through an easily recognizable facial emotion set, here smiling to indicate approval.”
