Coding Is the New Writing for Developing Self-Expression, Communication, Imagination and Solving Hard Problems

A really nice article by Dr. Idit Harel Caperton on why to learn to code.  She really captures well the insight that computing is a medium, and the value of developing literacy in this medium.

To summarize, kids and adults too learn best by teaching, explaining, inventing and representing information to others. Coding is the new writing tool for young minds to do just that and especially well when integrated into a harder problem and a larger purpose, than learning coding for the sake of learning coding.
