Presentation on Computer Coding for Kids!

August 17, 2014

Annual conference where I will be sharing Computer Coding.

Computer Coding

I’ve been selected to speak at the annual Community Sharing for Healthy Caring Conference on Saturday, November 15, 2014 and I couldn’t be more excited!  My topic is about computer coding: “Playing with Code – Come Learn How to Write Computer Code and Have Fun Doing It!”  I’ve had fun all summer learning more about coding and loving it!  It’s a great challenge and it’s fun to see the things you can do with a few lines of code. Computer coding will become something everyone will need to understand the basic elements, so starting when children are young it will be like a second language and easy as pie for them.

Khan Academy takes block coding to the next level. The tutorials are great and they have lessons step-by-step and it is free.

Code Academy does an excellent job at explaining the information and providing the concepts step-by-step. Although they provide the information in a clear manner, it isn’t not for the beginner. There are concepts that the skim over.

Hope to see some of you there!
