EdWeek Hosts Live Chat – Introducing Computer Coding in K-12

10 Jul 2013

On July 12th, 2 p.m. ET/ 11 a.m. PT Education Week Digital Directions Senior Writer Michelle R. Davis hosts a  live chat about introducing computer coding to K-12 students as a way to teach math and higher-order thinking.

To help participants prepare, Education Week has created a Storify to  summarize the “need to know” information about Michelle Davis’s recent article on computer coding in the classroom, provides links to the article and the link for the virtual event. The live chat will focus on why it is important for students to learn coding early in their school careers and how this skill can assist students in other academic areas. The focus for both the article and the chat isn’t merely ed tech implementation, but also on how coding drives higher-order thinking skills and enables teachers to use coding in cross-curricular ways.
