ATLANTA — The State Board of Education will approve new computer-related standard course options for Georgia students.

WSB is reporting the board will approve standards for three new computer science courses which students can take in place of other core subjects such as math, science, or foreign languages.

The initiative was begun by Governor Nathan Deal over a year ago when he challenged the board to consider the importance of computer coding as a core competency.  Now that seems to becoming a reality for Georgia High School students.

The three new courses added to the existing five available are Embedded Computing, Web Development, and Game Design: Animation & Simulation.
