Teachers and Parents:
According to kodable.com, 1.4 million computer programming and coding jobs will be available over the next ten years with only 400,000 graduates in the field of computer science to fill those positions. It is important that we start preparing our students for the jobs of the future!
Your students and children will greatly benefit from learning to code at an early age. Not only does coding teach problem solving and logic, it also allows children to go from simply using technology to actually creating technology.
Please visit one of the websites or download one of the apps in the chart in order to find coding tutorials and activities! You can also find guides for “unplugged” coding activities on these websites.
