Marcos Navas is a technology facilitator with the Union City school district in New Jersey and an active member of the maker, stem, and coding community. He was part of the first cohort of Raspberry Pi Certified Educators in the United States. He recently has completed his fellowship with IDEO’s Teachers Guild and launched Hands-on Coding, which allows the student to physically move and act out programs created with Coding Blocks. It turns the human into a computer and teaches children not just how to solve problems but also how to express themselves.
If we believe and understand that the future will weigh heavily on technology and coding, we need to expose our students to coding today.
