Girls Who Code Can Robots Teach Kids to Code? I had all kinds of toys as a kid — Transformers, Star Wars action figures, Nerf guns, an Atari. I could go on. Though none of them captured my imagination like the Tomy Verbot. The stout little robot had a plastic bubble for a head and came equipped with a voice-controlled remote into which I would speak basic commands — Forward, Back, Pick up, Put down, Smile. As technology has evolved, so too has the capability of our robotics. As recently reported by technology blog TechCrunch, Gupta’s latest venture — he sold his first company to Google for a reported $70 million in 2010 — has produced prototypes for two robots — Bo and Yana — both of which can be programmed to respond to simple commands via an app installed on your smartphone or tablet device. To be clear: The robots don't actually teach coding. What do you think?

Kidsruby.com Codea How to Code During the month of December, Computer Science Education Week is promoted and is a national movement for students in K-12 schools. Computer Science is an important subject or concept to teach students because it will teach them: about meaningful contextthe learning process break down complex ideas into simpler ideascollaborate with otherskeep calm and move on when frustration sets insparks their creativity and critical thinking skills These are just a few benefits of learning to code. Here are a few websites that will help students get started on coding. 1- Code Academy This by far the most popular of them all. 2- Girl Develop It One of many programs geared toward females who want to code, Girl Develop It is an international nonprofit that provides mentorship and instruction. 3- Udacity Computer Science Course ( not free) Stanford University’s Udacity is one of many sites that make college courses—including Introduction to Computer Science—available online for free. 4- Teamtreehouse

However, we know from years of research that its utility goes well beyond the "schoolish three Rs" or "a great job or even instant riches" some day in the future. In my view kids must become coders and digital media creators rather than just information receivers and videogame players, because computational inventiveness, visualization and modeling, toward which coding is one fundamental first step, is essential for success in a world in which digital communication increasingly dominates civil society, business and commerce, science, entertainment, and human interaction around some of our world's most pressing problems --climate change, water scarcity, terrorism and security, global education and health. That was our vision about the power of coding in the 20th century.
