Thomas Suarez is amazing.  He is a self-taught app programmer.  Thomas makes an interesting point that children can take soccer lessons if they want to learn to play soccer or take violin lessons to learn to play the violin.  But where do you go if you want to learn to make apps?  He learned, then started an App Club at his school to teach other kids to build apps. 

It makes me wonder if technology is being taught in schools enough in our schools.

  1. I definitely think ours schools need to make a shift to teaching more technology! It’s become such a huge part of our everyday lives and I think it’s only going to continue to become more important and I think it’s important that schools recognize that!
