Coding on deck for B.C. grade school students
VANCOUVER — Computercoding basics will be included in British Columbia’s grade-school curriculum come September, as the government emphasizes tech skills in its plan to fill the jobs of the future. The new program announced today by Premier Christy Clark at the inaugural technology summit in Vancouver will be available for Grades 6 to 9 and will take three years to roll out. Clark told thousands gathered for the conference she’s heard the community’s frustration over a shortage of workers with digital skills.
