Coding can be satisfying and even exhilarating for kids. They start with nothing and finish with something.
And it goes further. Creativity is often limited by the materials you have - like ingredients when you cook, or the canvas when you paint. But with programming, the only restriction is your imagination.
There will be between 20 and 75 billion Internet of Things** devices in use by 2020. Many people worry that automated machines and artificial intelligence will make workers lose their jobs.
To address the problem, we must understand what computers can and cannot do. Teaching children about the world of technology helps them to become tech creators instead of users.
However, this is a good thing! Children learn how to identify a problem, fix it and try it again in different ways.
Children learn to think critically when facing a problem in coding:
‘If A + B didn’t work, then maybe A + C will.’
Coding also equips kids with the ability to stick with a problem and work on finding a solution.
Computer programming is more than just typing lines of code. A programmer needs to use logical thinking to write code well.
They must be able to see a large problem and break it down into smaller pieces in order to solve it. This is called decomposition, and is one of the key features of computational thinking.
Writing code allows kids to find the quickest and best way to finish any task.
Coding is an amazing tool that increases our productivity exponentially. We can use code to automate tasks, make calculations, and even predict what will happen next. Whether it’s a math problem or a history project, kids can use coding to do it the best way.
We give students the power to code. Our courses teach coding through real world technology: control robots, create apps and websites, develop games, and build virtual reality.
At TechTrain, we equip your child with the tech toolkit to succeed in their studies, life, and work.
