Why We Should All Learn Coding

December4

Need some additional rationale for exposing your students to computer programming during the official Hour of Code—and beyond? Then be sure to check out The Why We Should All Learn Coding Infographic generated by OnlineCollege.org.

In case you aren’t sure, code is the stuff that makes most of the technology we use every day work. You obviously don’t really need to know how to reprogram your computer to operate it, but understanding how it works will help you imagine how programs can change to better serve you. So, if you’re among those of us who’ve always thought programming was impossibly hard or reserved for the tech-minded, that’s no longer accurate. There are plenty of free web resources and apps that individuals of all ages can utilize to become more savvy in this area.

That said, consider expanding your knowledge base—and that of your students—by becoming more familiar with code. As the interest of learning programming languages continues to rise, there’s never been a better (or more supportive) time to get ahead of the curve.
