Coding Education Programs Expand In U.S. As IT Jobs Market Flourishes

Coding Education Programs Expand In U.S. As IT Jobs Market Flourishes | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Across the country, programming training courses and education providers are looking to create closer ties to build better training modules for would-be coders and software developers. Earlier in November, Codecademy launched ReSkillUSA along with Thinkful, to reach out to the same community of under-employed workers. With the tagline “Make the skills gap end with you,” ReSkillUSA falls in line with the LaunchCode mission, if not its exact methods.

Still, both are no-cost or low-cost options for getting an education in programming, and taken together with a new credentialing program that General Assembly has launched in concert with a number of large technology and industrial companies, the new initiatives could be promising for future employment. Especially since the General Assembly credentialing tests are open to anyone.

The talent gap for skilled SW developers continues to be an issue for American corporations.  This article has some great info for anyone trying to move into a field with high demand and long term projected growth.  Check out: www.launchcode.org

Christine McCartney, a Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching is researching how Finnish teachers utilize authentic, on-going formative assessments in their classrooms on a daily basis. She has created a powerful presentation looking at the 60 year history of the educational trajectories that the US and Finland have taken.

 

She states: "While homogeneity in Finland certainly plays a role in the different trajectories of educational reform in the United States and Finland, a closer look reveals that there might be more at play."
