Learn to Code So You Can Code to Learn!
March 1, 2018
What a fantastic couple of weeks we have had! We joined our first, second and third twitter chats and have found some amazing educators and resources to add to our ever growing list!
Perhaps most important, we recognize a shift in thinking happening among coding classrooms. Learning to code is a fantastic first step, but coding to learn is the real goal. Through the multiple twitter chats we joined, we noticed a common theme: “if you can learn to read, you can read to learn – coding is no different.” So simple, yet so powerful! As such, we thought we would share another Decoded episode!
On this episode of Emerald Code: Decoded, we travel to Ottawa Ontario to meet Joshua Balisch the inventor of a Follower Robot. Joshua originally designed and built the robot for a class project, and it ended up taking him from the stage of the National Science Fair to the halls of Parliament Hill!
