The Language of Code: Why This Crucial Skill Needs to be Taught presented by our CEO Ari Ioannides and Dr. Ember Conley, Superintendent, Park City School District. What would you say if there was a school system that did not teach the world's most dominant language to it's students? Outrageous right? That is exactly what most of our public schools are doing. Increasingly, the world we live in is run on computer code. How can we expect students to thrive without the knowledge to read and write code? Learn how it is important to implement a new systematic approach to creative coding that enables all students to reach their full potential in this new environment.
