Today Thursday, Apple is offering an Hour of code program at all its retail stores globally. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, made an unannounced visit in the Apple store on Upper East Side on Madison Avenue in New York City yesterday where he visited an Hour of Code-session and talked about the urgent need of transforming education. Cook said to Mashable: “You rarely ever see engagement in a classroom like this. Much like you would find in the workplace.” This is the foundation of his vision for education, less testing more creativity, less memorizing of facts since you have all the information you need in your smartphone, but more learning by doing and problem-solving.
