Kids and Communication
Technology & The Generation Gap (Part I)
I have this web app I've been working on that is for middle school kids to learn to code by making a web page, and eventually a website. Hopefully, this will be a positive introduction to Computer Science, and also app/web design. It's a pet project of mine in its early stages that I'm hoping to have in selected schools by some time next year. The sample page I created for demonstrating how to write code is a bit lame by middle school standards. I may be a cool grandmother, but I really don't know what passes for cool as a 12-year-old. So I've been trying to get my granddaughter to write a little “story” for me to replace the sample web page. I've been asking her for months with no results! Turns out I didn't really give her the task in a proper format.
