Students at Chestnut Hill’s Beaver Country Day School will have a new technological requirement: all students must have lessons in computer coding to graduate.
Head of School Peter Hutton has worked with teachers and staff to implement “The Coded Curriculum.” A panel proposal on the new code requirement has been submitted to SXSWedu 2014, according to an announcement by the school. Public votes play a significant role in determining the presenters at SXSWedu, so the school is asking for public support for its presentation proposal.
Hutton will be joined by Beaver Country Day math department chairman Rob MacDonald; Chris Dede, professor in Learning Technologies at Harvard Graduate School of Education; and Sheena Vaidyanathan, a school teacher and computer scientist from California.
The school also seeks help from members of the community to present the panel at SXSWedu 2014.
