The Lower Division’s “Fourth Language”: Creative Computing at Avenues
An important part of the Avenues mission is to teach 21st-century skills to prepare students for a global society and economy. In the the 2016–2017 academic year, the Lower Division curriculum formally introduced coding and programming as a “fourth” language, in addition to English and Spanish or Mandarin in the immersion program. The goal of this new initiative is for Avenues students to be able to “speak” code and understand why coding is an important 21st-century skill.
