So You ARE Ready to Code After All - Venspired

So You ARE Ready to Code After All - Venspired | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it

Confession: I used to think coding was boring. And confusing. And something I didn’t have time to learn about.  I thought it was all about memorizing numbers, letters, characters.  I remembered my early days of building a classroom website and playing with HTML, tinkering in Flash, and it all left a bad taste in my mouth about coding. Like spoiled milk.
