When it comes to getting students ready for 21st-century careers, coding often tops the list of skills needed. But teaching and learning coding can seem overwhelming. What’s more, coding languages and platforms are constantly changing. How can libraries introduce and support programming around coding even without a ton of experience? How can librarians keep up with the ever-changing field?

In this timely webinar, you’ll learn about best practices for introducing coding to your library makerspace and how you can support coding initiatives in your school or district. You’ll also learn how tools like littleBits can give students the foundations in engineering and coding that will be useful no matter what changes lie around the corner.
