Connected Code: Why Children Need to Learn Programming (The by Yasmin B. Kafai,Quinn Burke,Mitchel Resnick

By Yasmin B. Kafai,Quinn Burke,Mitchel Resnick

Coding, as soon as thought of an arcane craft practiced via solitary techies, is now well-known by means of educators and theorists as an important ability, even a brand new literacy, for all little ones. Programming is frequently promoted in K-12 faculties with a purpose to motivate "computational pondering" -- which has now turn into the umbrella time period for realizing what laptop technology has to give a contribution to reasoning and speaking in an ever-increasingly electronic world.In Connected Code, Yasmin Kafai and Quinn Burke argue that even supposing computational pondering represents a great place to begin, the wider perception of "computational participation" greater captures the twenty-first-century fact. Computational participation strikes past the person to target wider social networks and a DIY tradition of electronic "making." Kafai and Burke describe modern examples of computational participation: scholars who code now not for the sake of coding yet to create video games, tales, and animations to proportion; the emergence of teen programming groups; the practices and moral demanding situations of remixing (rather than ranging from scratch); and the flow past desk bound monitors to programmable toys, instruments, and textiles.
