Connecting Literacy and Coding: Resources for Integrating into K-12 Classrooms

Computational thinking and computer programming, or coding, have gotten a lot of traction lately. New computer science standards are suggesting that these skills should be integrated throughout K-12 in order to prepare students for this unique way of thinking and enacting upon their world. What some people don’t realize is computational thinking and computer programming have authentic connections to the way that we engage with language and mathematics, which makes them excellent companions to enhance literacies at every grade level.

Here is a collection of resources that we have put together to help get you started:
