5 Reasons for Kids to Learn Code

It's one thing for a child to play a computer game; it's another thing altogether for a child to build his or her own game. The computer's true power as an educational medium is to help students learn all by themselves.

1. Coding is a new type of literacy

Those students who master it are better prepared for a technical revolution that spans cultures and language boundaries.

2. Coding is a tool to improve educational equity

It's a way for all students to use technology for creative engagement.

3. Coding offers inclusion

By teaching coding to students with developmental disabilities, we're making them more marketable and employable in a high-tech economy.

4. Coding can improve neuroplasticity

Over a three-month period, the brain structure in those who acquired a second language grew in the hippocampal area and in three areas in the cerebral cortex.

5. Coding improves STEM proficiencies

By 2020, there are expected to be one million more computing jobs than students in the U.S. By making coding a classroom requirement, educators are better equipping students for this market.
