ALA and Google Help Study Coding Activities in Libraries

The American Library Association (ALA) and Google launched Libraries Ready to Code, a project designed “to investigate the current nature of coding activities in public and school libraries for youth and broaden the reach and scope of this work,” according to ALA. “The project will explore coding activities starting at the earliest ages through high school, with particular attention paid to understanding the opportunities through libraries for underrepresented groups in Computer Science (CS) and related fields. The work consists of an environmental scan, practitioner interviews, focus groups, and site visits. Findings will be used to further intervention and engagement, as well as to inform a policy agenda related to CS as part of ALA Office for Information Technology Policy’s Youth & Technology program.”
