Works with devices and any Internet-connected computer... Read on! Coding is being promoted nationally as a means of introducing students to computer science. Learning to code is learning to write in a language that the computer understands and then executes commands. The skills while learning to code include problem solving, multi-step planning, analyzing and perseverance. The free web based resources available for coding are designed so that students can learn to code while working independently at a center. The programs are designed to introduce new skills as the students progress and some even track their progress regardless of the teachers coding knowledge &/or ability. The great thing for the elementary level is that these programs run on the older computers that many have in the back of your rooms and make a great math center. Additionally, it is a perfect resource for Secondary Math teachers. Coding while beneficial & accessible to all students is a great option to enrich & challenge our best & brightest.
