TED TALKS: teaching kids computer code
Computer code is the next universal language, and its syntax will be limited only by the imaginations of the next generation of programmers.
Linda Liukas is helping to educate problem-solving kids, encouraging them to see computer code not as mechanical, boring and complicated but as a colorful and expressive language meant to be tinkered with.
In this TED talk, she invites us to imagine a world where the Ada Lovelaces of tomorrow grow up to be optimistic and brave about technology and use it to create a new world that is wonderful, whimsical and a tiny bit weird.
