TVO’s the Agenda examines the teaching of coding

Aired on November 7, TVO‘s the Agenda discussed teaching coding to Ontario students
Coding Kids  :  Software coding is thought to be the language of the future but is so far not on the curriculum in in Ontario schools. In England, children as young as six are taught how to code; this year British Columbia has implemented coding into its curriculum. The Agenda looks at when Ontario might follow suit and what the suitable age is to start learning computer language.
Check out the Professional Library resource list on coding – it is a Google doc so TDSB teachers must remember to login with your TDSB password.
