Teaching Kids to Code (EdSurge Guides)

Every era demands–and rewards–different skills.In different times and different places, we have taught our children to grow vegetables, build a house, forge a sword or blow a delicate glass, bake bread, create a soufflé, write a story or shoot hoops.Now we are teaching them to code

via Teaching Kids to Code (EdSurge Guides).
