A look at how one high school is introducing programming into all its classes, even unrelated subjects. Some of these are eyebrow-raise-worthy at first glance:
Brown says she’s considering a poetry unit using code language. […] Tina Farrell, who heads the Performing Arts department, is interested in experimenting with live-coding performances, where students would use software to compose and perform music with scripts they write.
But just imagine if these worked.
Also, new to me, linked from the article: TurtleBits, an interactive turtle learning tool. Still one of my favourite intro programming resources.
