Move the Turtle is a much more updated version of the basic programming I learned as a child. Page 4 of 6 5 James, 8, explained that programming is getting the computer to do something by itself. The organization pays to train high school teachers to offer more advanced curriculums, and, for younger students, it has developed a coding curriculum that marries basic instruction with video games involving Angry Birds and hungry zombies.
He sees it as very positive, potentially inspiring students to develop a new passion, perhaps the way that teaching frog dissection may inspire future surgeons and biologists. This is strategically significant for the economy of the United States, said John Pearce, a technology entrepreneur.

The lessons do not involve traditional computer language. Daisy the Dinosaur Children can program Daisy the Dinosaur and learn some basic rules of programming in the process.
The spread of coding instruction, while still nascent, is unprecedented there s never been a move this fast in education, said Elliot Soloway, a professor of education and computer science at the University of Michigan.
Children earn diamonds, trophies and stars along the way. But smartphones and apps are ubiquitous now, and engineering careers are hot. Computer science is big right now in our country, the world, she said.
In the free-play section, children can experiment with commands and see how Daisy moves as a result of their program.
Check out these top coding apps for young children. Rather, they use simple word commands like move forward or turn right that children can click on and move around to, say, direct an Angry Bird to capture a pig.
She heard about the idea late last year at a professional development meeting and, with her principal s permission, swapped a two-month earth sciences lesson she was going to Page 5 of 6 6 teach on land masses for the Code.
Increasing their global outreach by making their courses available in more than 45 languages that are used in over countries. They must use the commands given to complete the challenge. But the momentum for early coding comes with caveats, too.

Sep 17, · A recent New York Times article called Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Lately Coding, talks about the trend and it’s significance.
I like this trend and feel that teaching coding is teaching problem solving, strategic thinking, visual/spacial concepts and math.
