  1. I am a lateral entry school teacher acquiring my teaching certificate for High School mathematics. My prior career was a computer programmer for many years.

    At what do you think that students will actually be able to code and understand the concepts behind the computer programming? Would coding a game program be a good way to start off?

    Thanks

    • Of course it varies with the student but we have been teaching high school students of all grades about programming. I have read about really young students being taught programming, even as young as 5th grade. I don’t know how they do that!

      Game programming is definitely a good way to go. Gamemaker is a great tool for that.

      Good luck and write any time if you have questions.
