Coding is not just a process, but a language and means of communication. When considering its role in education, it is often siloed as an after-school program, or isolated as an independent course. While these approaches can have a positive impact on students, it does not give all students access and opportunities to discover coding's role in their learning and life. Come learn how I developed a course that synthesizes coding and writers workshop in the elementary classroom. Beyond the benefits and skills gained through coding, it allows the writing process to become visual and hands-on, giving students a completely new way to develop their writing and coding literacies. Without question, coding will have a role in our students future, and it is up to us to empower them today for tomorrow.
