Conversation 57 - Brian Aspinall - And Coding for All
Brian is a former classroom teacher, now special evangelist for coding in all areas of curriculum. Well spoken, thoughtful, and downright funny at turns, Brian and I have a great conversation about why coding is an important skill and why it's not necessarily the coding itself that's the most important thing being learned. We get into topics of environmental feedback, playing, the internet of things (and why it's scary), plus we cap our conversation by addressing some of the pushback that happens when high-profile twitter members come under fire from the EDU community.
