A Simple Way To Introduce Your Students To Coding - TeachThought

A Simple Way To Introduce Your Students To Coding - TeachThought | Coding - Everything | Scoop.it

"As apps and digital projects become more important to how we live and play, learning how to design and create those ideas is going to become more important as well.

 

And if the current trend continues, more accessible than ever.

 

While many coding resources for students exist, many of these look like they were designed by lifeless robots. Coding already has a reputation as geeky, dry, and alphanumeric, as opposed to the svelte, elegant, and engaging interaction that code produces. Kind of ironic."

Teach thought? Interesting concept. The brain has everything in place at birth to absorb language and words and one cannot think without them. Let's not forget the organic nature of learning. Imposing skills and processes from the outside can often ignore the very nature of being human....empathy, curiosity, creativity, communication...which develops from within the child. We must be careful about what we feed in to the child as that is what we often get out.

Muy sencillo y accesible a niños de 6 años y quizás 5... Muy intuitivo.

"December 9-15, Computer Science Education will host the Hour Of Code–a one hour introduction to students on coding, programming, and why they should love it. It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator. They’ll include a variety of self-guided tutorials that anybody can do, on a browser, tablet, or smartphone. No experience needed. Watch this “how to” video for more information."

OPINION: We Need Coding in Schools, but Where are the Teachers? (EdSurge News)

OPINION: We Need Coding in Schools, but Where are the Teachers? (EdSurge News) | Coding - Everything | Scoop.it

"Coding in K-12 schools has gained momentum over the last two years.But as we rush to bring coding to our schools, questions emerge: Do we need ‘coding’ teachers? Who will teach computer programming to our students?

 

Many believe that anyone can learn using the many “learn to code” startups that surround us. Programmers today are writing code--to teach coding!

 

What, then, is the role of the teacher in this coding movement, especially for younger students? Can all kids learn using these “learn to code’” sites without a teacher who understands coding? Will this work for all types of students?"
