How and Why To Teach Children to Code
May 17, 2014 @ 4:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Presidents, Prime Ministers, Silicon Valley billionaires, and members of the maker community are calling for children to “code.,” but what does that mean? Web sites and non-profit organizations have been created based on the assumption that self-selecting kids will teach themselves. Such an approach leaves too much to chance and assures inequitable opportunity. A presenter with 30+ years of experience will explore the how, what, and why of teaching computer science to children in a developmentally appropriate fashion so they learn a lot more than just how to code. Pedagogical strategies will be shared.
