New Apple Program ‘Everyone Can Code’

This article comes via EdSurge and is written by Mary Jo Madda.  Coding is becoming more and more popular and Apple has decided to jump in!

“CEO Tim Cook announced on September 7 that 114 ConnectED schools will start programming this fall. According to Cook, Apple has also provided a Mac and an iPad to 4,500 teachers, while also putting an Apple TV in every ConnectED classroom and distributing 50,000 iPads for students.”

For more information you can check out the “Everyone Can Code” initiative and follow how they are working with ConnectED.

Also check out an older article that I cited for additional information on Coding.  I love the coding initiatives!!  It exposes children to technology but also teaching them the fundamentals of problem solving and patience while learning valuable informaiton.
