Kids should learn programming as well as reading and writing – Mitch Resnick


A recommended video from Mitch Re snick  who leads the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab, the home of Scratch.Most people view computer coding as a narrow technical skill. Not Mitch Re snick  He argues that the ability to code, like the ability to read and write, is becoming essential for full participation in today’s society. And he demonstrates how Scratch programming software from the MIT Media Lab makes coding accessible and appealing to everyone — from elementary-school children to his 83-year-old mom.

As director of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab, Mitch Re snick designs new technologies that, in the spirit of the blocks and finger paint of kindergarten, engage people of all ages in creative learning experiences.
