Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 20, 2013 9:23 PM

EdSurge had put together a great guide, Teaching Kids to Code, that provides 14 posts that look at coding from a variety of perspectives and a table that lists 40 tools for learning online programming. The table is divided into sections which include learning coding with:

* apps

* hardware

* visual blocks

* formal coding language

Many of the suggested tools are free.

There are many who suggest that all students should learn to code. If you are interested in helping students learn to code or would like to learn about a variety of resources check out this post.

I look forward to putting this in front of my video game design students.

I followed the link through to https://www.edsurge.com/n/2013-05-13-heading-off-to-summer-coding-camp and was happy to see that iD Tech Camps was on the list! We love them. Jade went 2 years in a row and learned Flash, C+, Video Editing and more.
