"One of my goals for the year is to integrate coding into the curriculum K-12.  


I wrote a post at the beginning of the summer break called One Thing I Am Going To Focus On And Learn This Summer...Coding And Integrating It Into Our Curriculum. Even though we have tried a few digital tools over the last couple of years, we have never learned about it as a class or part of the curriculum.  

To be honest, I know very little about coding myself.  I took a class in graduate school where I had to write a little code to create a website, but it was basically following along with the book to copy what they had already created.  I can change the size and color of things...that is about it.  I have tried Scratch and Coding Academy."
