While exploring Facebook, I came across a post by Linkin Park. There has been a video going viral on Facebook titled “What most schools don’t teach”. Curious, I clicked it. Suddenly, I had been sucked into the world of coding. This video stars Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, NBA All-Star Chris Bosh and more. It relayed the importance of coding and the benefits of teaching it in school. I quickly went to their website and signed their petition. Then, I started clicking through the teaching tools listed above.
Coding is the new home economics of the 21st century. Jobs are opening up online and it will soon become vital to learn how to code. “1 million of the best jobs may go unfilled because only 1 in 10 schools teach students how to code.” This is the place field where there are many skilled workers lacking. It’s a whole new world online and Aladdin needs to show me how to access that.
