|Beyond Coding: How Children Learn Human Values through Programming (MIT Press)|
|Friday, 01 April 2022|
This book sets out the case for why children should be taught coding not as a technical skill but as a new literacy—a way to express themselves and engage with the world. Marina Umaschi Bers lays out a pedagogical roadmap for teaching code that encompasses the cultivation of character along with technical knowledge and skills. Presenting code as a universal language, she shows how children discover new ways of thinking, relating, and behaving through creative coding activities.
