My name is David Gassner, and this is Foundations of Programming: Programming for Kids. This course is actually for parents and educators who want to help young programmers learn the fundamentals of programming and build their coding skills. But programming is fun. And that will be our focus throughout the course. First we'll have a brief discussion of some theories of childhood learning. For the youngest programmers, I'll show you apps that you can load onto tablets, that let kids animate objects using simple block-based visual programming.
And other hardware such as the Arduino circuit board and the Raspberry Pi computer on a card. If you're a parent or an educator who works with potential young programmers, I hope this course helps you find the tools you need that help kids learn how to program.
