Watch Famous People Talk About What Most Schools don’t Teach
Our world revolves around computers, and everything we do ends up being controlled or done by a computer. So, why many school don’t teach this magnificent skill to kids?
Well, Code.org, the new non-profit aimed at encouraging computer science education launched last month by entrepreneur and investor brothers Ali and Hadi Partovi, has gathered an all-star group of the world’s most well-known and popular folks with programming skills to talk about how learning to code has changed their lives.
“Enrollment rates in programming classes are low, but what is worse is that schools aren’t even teaching it, even though this is the fastest growing segment of jobs in the country,” Partovi said,
There aren’t many schools out there that teach programming, but it looks like Code.org has made an impressive and thoughtful start.
