Learning Computer Programming is a Family Affair

It has become commonplace to refer to young people as “digital natives” because of their apparent fluency with technology, but are they really fluent? Most kids are comfortable texting, playing online games, and Googling things, but does that really make them fluent with new technologies?

Doesn’t digital fluency really require more than just the ability to interact with electronics like computers, phones, and tablets? Being able to consume digital media without being able to create it is kind of like being able to read without knowing how to write.
