#CodingCounts

Science and technology are becoming increasing more important in society every day. Therefore, the #codingcounts initiative to prepare school students for these opportunities is a wonderful idea. This project aims to develop student’s digital literacy and nurturing coders, innovators and entrepreneurs through practices such as robotics and coding clubs.

Although I support this initiative, I agree with Lucy that current and future teachers such as myself are not adequately trained and equipped to pass this knowledge and skills along to my students. If I, a pre-service teacher currently undergoing training for future education, feel uncomfortable with teaching this, I fail to see how a teacher who has been in the profession for decades is capable of adequately transferring this knowledge. Therefore, I believe that it is imperative that both current and future teachers undergo more training to prepare our students for the technological world.
