I am excited to try coding in my classes. I think the student will think it's a ton of fun to work with; and being able use coding with module 3 by creating an ecosystem simulation that the students can observe, manipulate, and use to come up with their own conclusions is a fantastic way to supplement what we will learn in class.. Coding makes this an extension to the curriculum that is relevant and it is important to demonstrate the way science is being studied in the 21st century through the use of technology.
Although I feel like I need a LOT more practice to feel comfortable with coding, I think the students will pick up on the process pretty quickly. My son, who has been exposed to coding through his Lego robotics class, has even offered to help me when I get stuck. While that is an offer I will probably take him up on, I still want to better understand the coding steps we have been working on in starlogonova so that I am better prepared when I begin introducing coding to my classes.
