I’ve been doing some research about coding and came across this fantastic article that was published in Forbes Magazine.
Next week, I will be holding a coding Curriculum day with my staff and I’m ready to have questions fired at me!
- why is coding important?
- why should we have to teach it?
- how can I teach the kids if I don’t know how to code?
You all know what I’m talking about… Right? Answering their questions with, “It’s in the curriculum and you have to,” just won’t cut it! I want to provide teachers with some evidence. They need to be able to see the reality. Coding is becoming part of everyday life. We’re teaching kids and trying to prepare them for jobs that don’t even exist yet.
Just thought it was a valuable article to share with all you other techs. Happy reading:)
