What is Coding?

If you want to learn more about ScratchJr specifically, I would recommend Introduction to ScratchJr by MakeLearn.org

A note about terminology: There are many excellent explanations on the web of the differences between programming and coding (one such example is Coding vs. Programming - Battle of the Terms! from the Huffington Post). On Shoelace Coding I use the term coding in the spirit of ScratchJr's idea that "Coding is the new literacy!" Namely, coding is coding if it is used for creating. Coding is coding if students are coding-to-learn, and not just learning a formal programming language devoid of context and meaning.
