For 47 minutes each week, more than 100 second-graders at Mineola Primary School learn the elementary building blocks of computer technology. The kids are a long way off from understanding how to write complex computer programs, but they do grasp a fundamental understanding:

“They realize they’re actually making things happen,” says Kaye Morris, a primary school technology instructor. “They see the end results of the sequencing.”

Across America, schools are investing in technological training and education of children at a young age. Mineola, which prides itself for its technological innovation in the classroom, is no different. It sees learning the language of computers as a foundational skill for competing in the world of today and tomorrow. more
