We can't even talk about Coding for ALL, however we cannot even talk about all when we don't have equity(and most people confuse this for equality). How do we get people to see the importance of computer science in schools? Show Notes & Quotes Don't create teams based on gender. Create teams based on student personality type instead. When it comes to Paired Programming don't leave it up to chance. Strategize the work partners of boys and girls. "People hire people who are like them." We need to mix our students up to see potential in others who are not like them. "It's hard to imagine something we don't see" Sheryl Sandberg "Do we want to give people what they need to be successful or do we want to treat everyone the same?" Why you should be checking your high school courses for CS and STEM and you don't see females, then it is time to look back at services in elementary and middle school. Technovation Challenge for Females Be mindful of our thoughts and actions as educators and reflect on how we can impact our students.

The Education Vangaurd
Coding is the new literacy! Sometimes I want to shout that from the rooftops until everybody hears it and jumps onto the movement dropping everything they are doing now to focus on bringing daily coding into the classroom.Guess what? My yelling and screaming ain’t gonna make it happen. ;-) Instead, today’s guest Tara Linney of Singapore American School, has an alternative to bringing coding to the classroom. As an elementary technology coach, Tara chose to look for opportunities within the existing math curriculum for coding opportunities. One of the areas that jumped out quickly for her was geometry. Tara shares her ideas with us today, including a study she is conducting on the efficacy of her efforts.Tara is also the 21st Century Learning Innovative Educational Coaching award recipient this year.
