Earlier today I attempted to do some coding over at the website https://www.codecademy.com/learn. I have never done any coding before however I did appreciate this challenge. This website breaks it down step by step in coding some html.
This was a fun little activity that I took place in. Really gave me appreciation for people who actually code all the time!
I think as we continue to develop into this technological age, I believe that coding is going to be seen as more important. I think we should have more of it in high school and earlier grades. Providing the students with an opportunity to delve into something that affects them everyday is pretty powerful. Also providing the students with more skills so it opens them up to more options later on in life is great as well. I also feel like a lot more students would be open to coding if they were exposed to it earlier on in life because most people just aren't exposed to it and by the time they are older they are more closed minded to the idea of coding.
