Always remember, that in an algo, you can execute each step in finite no of times, and then after execution of the algo, you must reach the solution of the problem.

Coding for Kindergarteners

Coding for Kindergarteners | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
Last year at this time, I was trying not to think about kindergarteners. I was still teaching ninth grade English and had just accepted a job teaching technology to K-5. I was excited about the challenge, and I knew that I'd bitten off more than I could chew.

Developing the tech curriculum challenged me to teach programming or at least computational thinking at each elementary grade level. Our school is mid-pivot in technology -- we're in our second year of a middle school 1:2 iPad program, our first year of having a cart of iPads available for elementary, and our last year of two PC labs for the students to use (next year we'll have only one lab). Knowing this, I wanted to design a program that mostly used tablet-based tools.

William Griffin's curator insight, December 7, 9:04 PM

The idea of teaching children how to code is a great one.  Technology has rapidly changed the world and all of it stems from coding.  Just like most skills, the sooner its learned, the more time it can be mastered, and ultimately effectiveness is maximized.
