September 15, 2016

You might have noticed… I strongly believe that learning how to code is an essential skill for students. It doesn’t matter what type of career they choose to enter. Problem solving and critical thinking are critical skills for students. Computer science being taught at all levels and the results are powerful. Teachers with access to a range of technology tools can make learning computer science a priority for their students.

Why Teach Computer Science?

Computer science is a valuable skill for every endeavor. Structured thinking teaches students how to logically break down problems and gain greater insight into the processes they experience every day.

Why Teach Computer Science with Python?

Learning a new language is an intimidating task. Python’s English-like syntax and powerful built-in functions make it an ideal tool for everyone from beginners to experts. Computing literacy is becoming a necessary skill, and the Python programming language lets students harness the full computing powers of their device. The Python programming language is also becoming a standard tool for modern computing applications so it’s a super practical choice for students.
