When my son was 10, he started downloading Java script code to teach himself how to write and mod it. This was adorable. But being his mother, I thought I could help him find an easier way. I tried to find someone in his school who could help him with this and was met with blank looks and even anger. It was frustrating. This is a basic skill in a world that’s driven by technology. But no one in the entire education community he was a part of even had it on their to-do list. (He’s in high school now and it still isn’t offered.) I went online, got him some books, and downloaded some games that teach. He managed. But this should not be this hard. This should be taught in schools. But 90 percent of schools don’t teach computer science. Since this isÂ Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), I’m posting this video from Code.org. There is a petition. Please sign it. And think about joining the Hour of Code.
