Teaching Our Kids To Code: Our Implementation Plan
Giving every child in ourcommunity the chance tolearn to code.
What is iCode?iCode is an arm of iBridge hub, asocial enterprise dedicated togrowing the knowledge of computerprogramming in our community. We believe Computer programmingshould be a part of the corecurriculum in education, alongsideother courses.
What is iCode?Were committed to building thebest learning experience insideand out by transforming the wayComputer Programming is beingperceived, letting everyone knowthat it is much easier to learn howto code than they think.
Why Code?"It gives kids the ability both to readand to write in the foundationallanguages of the digital age and, indoing so, fundamentally transformstheir perspective from that of userto maker, consumer to creative”.Douglas Rushkoff
