Coding for Everyone: How Your Library Can Help Anyone Learn to Code
Tuesday, July 19, 2016 / 12 pm Pacific / 1 hour
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/coding-for-everyone.html

Computer programming, or coding, is a digital literacy skill that has become as important as reading and writing. Learning to code builds rational thinking and problem-solving skills, providing powerful tools that transfer to other subjects and create lifelong learners. Libraries have stepped up to help everyone learn the basics of coding - preschoolers, elementary school kids, tweens, teens, young adults, mid-career professionals, and retirees. In this webinar, learn why coding is important for everyone. Hear examples of informal and facilitated learning approaches, resources and best practices for library coding programs for a variety of audiences. And the best news is that you don't need any specialized training in computer programming yourself to run a successful program!

Presented by: Kelly Smith, Founder, Prenda<http://library.prenda.co/>
