Why Should Kids Code?
Kids today are surrounded by technology. It is clear that computers and programming are central to most aspects of our lives. Kids who learn the basics of programming can become better architects of their future world. Kids relish the challenge to become “creators” – be active participants instead of passive consumers. In addition, the computational thinking (analytical, logical) skills that underlie coding will be required for future knowledge workers to continuously adapt to our increasingly data-filled world. There is growing recognition that computer literacy is essential for a 21st century workforce.
Students will learn how to tell a good story, logically sequence events, and model real situations. They’ll increase their technical proficiency and confidence. In addition, they’ll also learn computational thinking by developing their algorithmic and design thinking abilities.
