  41. 41. howtotalkaboutcoding ...to boards/administration ● By year 2020 there will be 1.4 million jobs in programming and a lack of qualified job applicants. ● Formal coding programs can cost $$$$$. ● Library offered classes/programs offer access to tech “have nots.” ● Teaches problem solving, project management, computational thinking = improved employability.
  42. 42. howtotalkaboutcoding ...to parents & guardians ● Not all schools teach coding. ● By year 2020 there will be 1.4 million jobs in programming and a lack of qualified job applicants. ● Coding teaches problem solving, project management, computational thinking. ● ● Coding is a skill that can be learned at home! Fun board games and apps that you can play with your children teach important code literacy skills.
  43. 43. howtotalkaboutcoding ...to educators ● By year 2020 there will be 1.4 million jobs in programming and a lack of qualified job applicants. ● Teaching code literacy helps kids learn analytical thinking and problem solving that they can use in other subjects. ● We (the library) offer coding lesson plans to help you bring coding games and activities into your classroom. ● (If possible) We can put the apps you use in the classrooms on library owned devices, to ensure software matches up with what students have at school.
  44. 44. howtotalkaboutcoding ...to Kids & Teens ● Kids: This game (app, program) lets you show off your thinking skills to solve puzzles and/or make something! ● Teens: Coding teaches the skills needed to build apps and computer games! ● Coding lets you solve problems and try to outsmart your friends!
  45. 45. howtotalkaboutcoding ...to businesses & organizations ● The library will highlight the partnership and your business will be promoted to the community. ● You will have access to future workforce and can help mold and mentor potential employees.
  46. 46. howtotalkaboutcoding ...to Media ● By year 2020 there will be 1.4 million jobs in programming and a lack of qualified job applicants. ● Coding teaches problem solving, project management, computational thinking. ● Formal coding programs can cost $$$$$.
