EDUO 9137: Getting Started With Computer Coding

View the Course Syllabus

Instructor: Joe Herz, MA Educational Technology -

This course will guide you through resources and activities that will help you understand the world of Computer Coding at a beginner’s level. Coding is similar to learning a new language. The coder must learn a language of code. Coding can be challenging. Coding is a process of inputting instructions into a computing device that results in an action, or output. Success brings the coder a feeling of satisfaction and pride. If the result is flawed or needs revision, troubleshooting by trial and error engages critical thinking skills. Coding offers students a challenging, exciting, fulfilling, and productive look into what makes digital sound and motion take place.

We know not all students are not going to become computer programmers. So why should every child learn about coding? Because every profession today and in the future relies at some level on coding.
