Why do you think it is important for kids to learn about new technologies?

In my case, it's driven by their interest level

What is your experience either from the teacher/mentor or parent side of getting kids to code?

Kids doing Alice, Scratch and some Python

What methods have you tried?

Python book from Amazon, Scratch on own and Burlingame kids programming class that is based on Alice (they also have a Game Maker class)

If you have skills that you would like to teach kids, what are they?

No answer yet


I have an 8 yr old son who wants to learn Java eventually so he can write his own Minecraft mod. And a 10 yr old daughter who likes creating animations with Scratch
