Libraries Ready To Code Video....ALA & Rosen Publishing Deliver An Important Message About Coding and Computer Science

I am excited to share the new Libraries Ready to Code video. 

This was released on December 8, 2016 by ALA and Rosen Publishing during Computer Science Education Week.  

This video will be used as an advocacy tool to increase awareness of the importance of bringing coding programs, activities and events, such as Hour of Code, to libraries and communities. 

“Libraries are community hubs for learning a variety of skills relevant to modern life, and computational thinking skills learned through coding are among the most critical,” said ALA President Julie B. Todaro. “By showing what libraries can and are already doing to build a successful future for our nation’s youth, the Libraries Ready to Code video powerfully communicates the infrastructure of expertise and resources found in school and public libraries.”

This video is part of the Libraries Ready To Code Project which was introduced earlier this year. It is the first in a series of videos that will come out in 2017.
