JCDS Nitzotzot: Coding – The New Literacy

In the Spring edition of JCDS’ Nitzotzot, the “Coding: The New Literacy” article describes how they are using KIBO and ScratchJr to introduce students to coding as a literacy vs. just learning programming and robotics.

The article reads in part, “Students learn best when solving authentic problems and engaging in project-based learning.
