Why is coding important for all students

  • reinforces and generalizes literacy and math skills
  • increases communication and collaboration skills
  • fosters resilience and problem solving strategies by rewarding persistence
  • develops metacognitive skill required to give instructions to another person
  • confidence building in the use of technology
  • generates a feeling of accomplishment
  • creates a sense of belonging in the learning community
  • makes connections to other curriculum areas

Debug'd was created by a collaborative partnership with Bridges Canada and the Inclusive Design Research Centre of OCAD University; made possible by a grant from the Innovation, Science and Economic Development department of the Federal Government of Canada.
