Learning to code: New possibilities through collaboration at school
It's shaping up to be the year of coding! Code, the language of our digital world, is used to build all the websites, computer software, and smartphone apps that benefit practically every industry and occupation. Earlier this year, the White House unveiled the "CS for All" initiative, which provides over $4 billion in funding to expand and support K-12 computer science education. There is also a push in state legislatures across the country to reclassify programming languages as world languages, and for good reason: according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, there will be more than 1.3 million job openings in computer and mathematical occupations by 2022. No wonder it seems like everyone is talking about coding these days.
