Coding in the Classroom with the Tech Sherpas
Why is it important for students to learn to code? Coding is a mindset that exposes students to critical thinking, troubleshooting, and especially problem solving. Not only do students need to dissect the problem they are motivated to come up with the most efficient solution. And when something inevitably doesn't work as planned, they need to iterate, iterate, iterate because that's how coding works. It's important for student to develop the patience to unpack a problem and make thoughtful adjustments and methodically test the results of their changes. This is a difficult skill that is important for kids to develop. If you are worried your students may not have the background needed, if your students have basic math skills they're ready to get started. Like anything, it's the application of the knowledge that is important.
