This Is Why Students Need to Learn Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

This Is Why Students Need to Learn Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"Coding is becoming one of the essential literacies in the 21st century education. There is a growing demand now for teaching students how to code. In his wonderful TED talk titled "Let's teach kids to code", Scientist Mitch Resnick made this beautiful analogy : "When kids learn to code , it enables them to learn many other things, opens up many new opportunities for learning. It's useful to make an analogy to reading and writing, when you learn to read and write it opens up opportunities for you to learn so many other things, when you learn to read you can then read to learn, which is the same thing with coding, if you learn to code you can code to learn.""
