Learning to Code Becomes Learning to Learn – Edutopia

Until recently, I was like Jane, but with technology. I used tech tools all day with little knowledge of their workings. And, despite my interactions with Jane, I had a typical fixed-mindset explanation for this: “I’m an English teacher. My brain doesn’t work that way.” What I was really saying was, “I forget how to be a beginner.”

A year ago, though, I became a beginner, an apprentice, a struggling learner. I decided to learn how to code.

Immediately, the experience became less about designing websites and more about experiencing the growth mindset, improving confidence with technology, and learning that failure is part of the process.
