I think this is a great program, and I’m pleased to hear it has some traction in schools here.
I also hope the current government initiatives prove to be more than another political whim.
If we wish to retain our wealth and prosperity as a country, our children must be equipped to manage the new world … and exploit the possibilities.
One of my few regrets is that I discovered IT and coding so late in life … better late than never I guess, but it has revealed to me how poorly equipped (and intimidated) many adults are to manage the digital age, even quite young adults. We cannot afford to for this to happen to another generation.
