In the digital era, one of the best ways to prepare your kid for the future is to help them learn the art of coding.
What is coding?
Learning to code is basically learning how to speak and write in computer language. Code is used to communicate with computers and build websites, apps, video games, programs and more – in recent years, demand for programmers, web designers, software developers and more, have soared. Who knows? Learning to code may even lead to a viable career when your little tyke is all grown up!
Benefits of learning to code
Beyond the lucrative fields of programming and IT, the benefits of coding runs deeper than career advantages. It helps children effectively understand the digital world around them, while allowing them to develop strong analytical and problem-solving skills, improve academic performance, and build their resilience against challenges.
Furthermore, while coding is a logic-based activity, it can also be a fun outlet for your child to express themselves and their creativity into developing various apps, websites and more.
