Technology is everywhere. It's part of everything we do, and kids need to have an understanding of how it works. It will help them think critically and solve problems.
I've run a summer camp to teach kids to create their own video games for 9 years. I'm making http://codehs.com to teach kids with no prior experience how to program. I've taught the intro classes as a TA and section leader at Stanford for 3 years.
Karel is fantastic. We used it at Stanford, and we are using it at CodeHS. Multimedia Fusion is also a fantastic program for younger kids.

I'm a Stanford CS Grad working in SF on CodeHS. I'm passionate about CS education, and I love to ski and go to Stanford Football Games.
