Supt. Reed addresses Mary Bardin's Question

About: Reader asks what 'Coding' at Adair Co. Primary Center is

By Supt. Alan W. Reed

I have to admit that we slipped into "educationeese" with use of the word "coding." Coding is another word for writing software and applications (apps) that we run on computers and various hand-held devices.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. "Coding" integrates science, technology, engineering and mathematics (known as STEM) which can eventually lead to high paying jobs in the computer software industry.

It was easy to tell that our ACES students in the CM photos yesterday were having fun while learning.

- Alan W. Reed, Superintendent
Adair County Schools, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY
