Coding for kids. 8 -12 years old.
WHY DO WE NEED TO TEACH CODING TO KIDS?
In this digital era, every second job is tech job and our schools are still teaching only simple operations like left clicking – right-clicking the mouse which students can learn easily in no time. We need to impart life skills to students and make them ready for future jobs. After all, Coding is the next level of literacy!
Coding for kids will be easy after this course. In the simplest form coding or programming for kids, are directions for how to do something. If you want to tell someone how to get from point A to point B, you must give her a clear set of instructions. If your directions are not clear and precise, she’ll end up in the bushes.
