The Creator Of Scratch on Technical Literacy, Coding, & Smarter Kids | iEduc | Scoop.it

If you have not checked out Scratch, a free programming language from the MIT Media Lab, take the time to listen to this talk by the creator, and then check out the program at the Scratch site, http://scratch.mit.edu/. You may download the program, join an educator's community, check out projects, watch tutorials and much more. One question that is being discussed more and more is if we should teach students programming. We are also told we need to have our students be creators of materials. Scratch may be a program that will help us meet both these goals.

MIT's Scratch is a great program for high school students to learn.

Should All Designers Learn to Code?

Should All Designers Learn to Code? | iEduc | Scoop.it

Here are several compelling reasons why all designers should learn to code:

 

- Designers who can code can put their ideas in motion without waiting on a front-end developer (FED).

 

- FEDs can design something the way they want it, instead of trying to interpret someone else’s vision.

 

- The streamlined process allows for agile design, where user feedback can be implemented immediately.

 

- Applying creativity to development produces more thoughtful, user focused products.

 

- Teams are able to design user interactions in a real world environment instead of a PSD.
