In 2019, Project tomorrow partnered with BrainPOP in a study and report on how students, parents, educators, and district leaders’ opinions on coding in K-8 classrooms. Through data gathered by Project Tomorrow’s SpeakUp, we see that most children have a strong desire to learn how to code, yet feel their schools aren’t doing an adequate job of providing this skill. Many students and parents also express a desire for schools to focus more on creativity and problem-solving, rather than rote skills. These findings are key for educators in the 21st century to not only discover what their students’ goals and desires are, but to also adequately prepare students for the world post-school. Project Tomorrow is a leading organization on gathering up-to-date, crucial data for educators, district leaders, and parents alike.
