My students are first through fourth graders. They are serviced weekly in my classroom for eight hours. They are intellectually gifted.
I feel that they have been at a disadvantage due to the area of the country that we live.
We are a rural school and have very limited resources. Nonetheless they are eager to learn whatever is presented to them.
The guidelines for gifted education in Mississippi call for STEM activities and instruction, I hope to provide those opportunities for my students. I hope that someone will read this and want to be a partner in their future.
Computer coding is the universal language of the planet. People who know how to code will be able to communicate across countries and cultures, be innovative, and solve problems more efficiently. Learning programming at a young age will help my students solve everyday problems and be set up for a lifetime of opportunities.
This foundation can set my students up for a lifetime of successful use and management of the technology in their everyday lives.The current generation of students will need to be literate in technology in order to be competitive in the future job market.
Not knowing how to code will be comparable to not knowing how to read. Coding specialists are well-paid and highly sought-after on the current market, and opportunities for these skilled employees will expand in the future.
Having enough computers in my classroom for each student to work is vital to our success. As a teacher, I want my students to experience success and with this computer I am requesting it will be possible. I believe learning to code at an early age will give my students advantages over other job seekers.
