“ Everybody in this country,
Should learn to program a computer,
Because it teaches you how to think”
Gone are those days in which programming or coding was thought as to be a adult task. In earlier years it was assumed to the part of technical background domain. If we see the process of coding actually we can agree to the thought of Sir Steve Jobs. That is, coding means thinking in a deeper manner and executing in a way to get the desired output. Programmer thinks in a variety of manner and brainstorms on the output and code to get the same. This process results into empowering the brain capacity and thinking pattern. With coding we eventually learn how to think. Then surely it is need to learn coding with a goal to enhance thinking pattern.
Today it is not only the task of elders in fact, to learn coding it should begin at early stages of life and that too in schools. Realizing this fact, younger ones are learning to code. It makes them involve in learning process and kids come up with wonderful outcomes easily than elders. It is interesting to see little kids with vast knowledge. It is not only the idea but it is already in execution in some of the countries, like Germany where kids create adventure challenges and code their bots and then their robots follow the safe paths through the mazes.
Also in china kids of grade 2 are learning the 3D form in the computer and also taught their group teachers to make an digital application to explain the concepts. Grade 2 now know arduino programming and are used to it. Looking at this enhancement we certainly agree to the prediction of Sir
Mark Zuckerberg where he says,
“In fifteen years we will be teaching programming like reading and writing…. And wondering why didn’t do it sooner”
We can conclude that today learning has raised at other level and coding is the integral part of it. With reading and writing the next important attribute is now coding where we can say the kids are educated in pace with the changing world and they are ready for future opportunities. So gear up our kids if they have not started coding yet. It is “grade 2” in world coding and developing incredible applications.
