Software Coding

posted on

 

Some parents have been advocating to include software coding skills as a mandatory part of the curriculum at the elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels. Some of the reasons for doing so:

  • Technology permeates our society, and though most students today learn how to use it, few students learn how it works
  • Without understanding how software works, students will not be able to understand how the inter-connected world around them works
  • Teaching students how to code will give them a skill for life
  • There will be many jobs in the future that will require software coding skills
  • Several countries/provinces have already introduced software coding in their curriculum (England 2013, Nova Scotia 2015, British Columbia 2016)

St Thomas High School Home and School Association has submitted a resolution to the

Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations Inc. (QFHSA) to lobby the Quebec government to include software coding in the curriculum.
