The world that our learners operate in everyday is one where digital literacy needs to be a fundamental part of education. Not knowing the language of computers can create the same challenges as being illiterate. Coding is about creation and crafting a system of interactions much like storytelling. It builds strong computational thinking skills to breakdown larger problems into a series of smaller ones that are easier to manage. Learning to code builds a foundation for students to design, communicate, and create content to share rather than just consume what others have made.
