Episode 2 – Teenagers and Technology with guest Jim Collison


I have been wanting to have someone on the show, so I asked Jim Collison to come on to Serious About Tech! to talk about teenagers using technology.

Teenagers should be using technology in more than a consumption manner.

Most teens is this day and age only use technology as a consumer. Most do not think about the technology they use, or how they can develop for these technologies.

Coding apps, websites, and more is good for teens to do.

Teenagers should be coding in Scratch, Python, HTML/CSS, and others. These skills will be useful for teens in a career of technlogy, or just in case they need these skills to program bots, robots, artificial intelligence, and autonomous vehicles.
