Cartoons about Coding and High Tech for Young Children

Great cartoons lampooning the current bandwagon of coding for all students…

Larry Cuban on School Reform and Classroom Practice

As a follow-up to the previous post on coding for kindergartners, I have selected some cartoons about the unceasing and ever-escalating demands of schooling young children and current efforts to use high-tech devices. Cartoonists have a special angle on a topic often missing from how policymakers see the world. And best of all, cartoonists make their points using either a sledge-hammer or an ice pick rather than the tools policymakers use such as words and dollars. Enjoy!

If I learn how to write Roman Numerals, will that help me write computer code?
