If learning to code really is the new literacy---then how are we going to get ALL students to Learn It, Do It and Share It? This presentation will highlight three organizations that are teaching all kinds of kids the technology skills of the 21st century. Highlighted on the panel are presenters from: Tech Kids Unlimited, a technology program for special needs students; Black Girls Code, the award-winning organization which is expanding programming to diverse girls; and Hopscotch, a new app for the IPAD which helps teach kids ages 8 to 12 to code. Moderated by: Dr. Jonathan Hill, Associate Dean, Seidenberg School of Computer Science.
