I am a middle school English Language Arts and Computer Science teacher in Brooklyn. The New York City Department Of Education has been trying to transition some of its teachers into teaching CS, as the official pathways into the classroom for industry professionals are scant. There are lots of teachers who want to take this opportunity, but the training options are often limited to companies who simply explain how to use their platforms (Code.org, Codesters, etc). It's not a bad deal, but I think I can do better.
I want to teach other teachers how to teach children how to code. What do you think teachers should be teaching, and what do you think children should be learning?
There are a lot of people who love both JS and UX/CSS. If we stop labeling people just as “JS developers” or “UX developers”, we can achieve a ceasefire in the current “JS vs. CSS” war and achieve a mutually benefiting peace.
