Why Kids Should Learn To Code

At one time, Computer Programming and Coding was the domain of technical specialists and computer programmers. Not anymore. Not in a world filled with applications where computers work at a touch, a click, or a swipe. We are now living in the digital computer age dominated by computer software programs in just about everything that we do.

Computer technology is everywhere in our homes including the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom and more. We carry our cellphones filled with apps with us 24/7. We are now surrounded with incredible devices that extend what we can do with our brains. With these, people can do faster things, keep track of vast amounts of information, and share your ideas with other people. It is no wonder then that many countries and schools have been pushing to add coding as a core curriculum in school syllabus. Learning coding is important in the 21st century and having computational thinking skills are vital for everybody especially children.

Besides obvious skills of learning how to write programming codes, kids who learn computer programming will also pick up other important living skills.

5 Essential Living Skills Acquired When Kids Learn Coding

1. Computational Thinking – Kids will have a structured way of solving problems by having these qualities: Conceptualizing, Combining of mathematical and engineering thinking, and having more ideas that inform our technology and lead to their creation.

2. Patience - Kids must learn to persevere and be persistent when things go wrong. They must not be easily frustrated and must go through each step patiently sometimes repeatedly till they get the results they want.

3. Team Work - Kids will learn how to collaborate with others when working on a sub-task on a bigger computer programming project.

4. Logical Thinking - Logical thinking and reasoning is essential in coding. Kids will have to apply logical thinking when they learn the if-then concepts.

5. Creativity - Coding is much more creative than many people realize. It is not just boring, mathematical computation. The programmer needs a creative side in order to come up with games and applications that generate sounds, images, animations etc.

  1. KidoCode looks very cool indeed! I'm really pleased to see how these types of coding clubs are springing up all over the world! Exciting times indeed. Do you think that parents are well versed in the ways of computational thinking? Sometimes I think we should create something that helps the mums and dads understand the concepts their kids are learning so that they can learn and relate to their children - the whizz kids of the 21st century!
