“Everyone should learn how to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think.” – Steve Jobs
It has been 20 years since Steve Jobs said these words, but not enough progress has been made towards it. Coding is only taught in higher educational levels or through special programmes, but not everyone has access to it. So we wonder why are people still resistant to this when there are so many cool benefits:
1. Learning is easier at a young age. It has been scientifically proven that it is easier for children to learn things than an adult. Coding for kids on the age of 5 may sound too complicated and optimistic. However, the understanding of coding logical building is not that hard even for kids.
2. Problem-solving and analytical thinking. Coding techniques help children to develop critical thinking skills. It teaches them how to break down big tasks into smaller and feasible steps.
3. Coding for kids is creative. It allows kids to create a whole world on their own and choose what paths and tools they use to create those cool things. And who doesn’t want to be a creator of its own game or reality?
4. Coding is the future. Programming is one of the fastest growing occupations. Coding for kids can build a ground basis for future understanding and of course expanding choices for future possibilities.
The whole world seems to be moving towards technology, so why shouldn’t kids be prepared for the future?
Skidos is joining in on this initiative and is working to offer children an easy and fun way to learn to code. Instead of feeling trapped and bored, with Skidos’ games kids have a lot of fun playing while they learn. Moreover, they develop new skills without realizing it. Intuitive learning approach for studying is not only giving the best results in understanding, but it boosts motivation as well.
Stay tuned! New coding games from Skidos are coming out this month!
