Programming courses are urged for younger children - Courtesy of ASCD Smartbrief

  • Here is a good article regarding the use of computers for younger students.  It argues for the need to make students career ready - common core - and starting theme early.  

  • Many young children are learning computer programming through online resources they find outside of school. The Computer Science Teachers Association recommends that elementary and middle schools introduce computer science classes, especially because of the need for skilled workers in the field. Alice, Scratch and Lua-based platforms are identified as good resources for younger students. Business Insider (8/29) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
