A University of North Georgia associate professor is urging parents to teach their children computer coding.

Bryson Payne is the chair of the computer science department and he’s written a new book titled “Teach Your Kids To Code.”

“Coding is just programming a computer, making it do something you want it to do – whether you’re playing with a mobile app for the first time, building a self-driving car, 3-D printing, bots, drones. Anything you can think of in the news today pretty much has software behind it,” Payne said during an interview on “A Closer Look.”
