Coding? I learned about coding, read some interesting arguments for it and how it is so beneficial in the technology age. Thanks for educating me on coding guys. I’m just hard to convince at this point. There is just so many other requirements and mandates that teachers are expected to follow with “fidelity to the curriculum”. Teacher’s have so much to teach and I personally believe that I am a teacher to young students with a responsibility to character development including the responsibility to teach social skills they might be lacking.
Maybe coding will become a class my school district required some day, but for now coding will in the category for me to have learned about to think of some day. I appreciate the way coding teaches people to think critically, and to use specific structure. I also understand that my students have many needs and I have a list of required tasks at my job.
