Coding in P-12 Education from the Beginning to the End
Our focus is the value of computer coding knowledge as a new literacy in the information economy. Examples of differences between “scripting” and “computer programming” will be illustrated. Our goal is that all middle and high school students would have some experience with coding before graduation. We see the mathematics class as a natural fit for learning this new literacy. Using Raspberry Pi computing devices, participants will try some hands-on coding with data sets that are familiar and relevant. We will conclude with a summary of the efforts made by ETSU to increase the coding literacy in Northeast Tennessee.
