Why Is It so Vital That We Teach Children to Code?

Kids, today, are growing up in a very different world than that of their parents – cell phones, computers, YouTube, Netflix, and Facebook are a normal part of their daily lives. 

It’s one thing to use technology; it’s another to understand how it works. Through learning to code, your child will better understand the digital world they live in. Learning to code prepares kids for the world we live in today and the world of tomorrow.

Deep into the digital age, the need for students to learn coding is becoming more and more apparent. As more students gain access to technology, a lack of coding literacy puts every student at a disadvantage.

Will every job involve programming? No. But it is crucial we equip future generations to think about the world in a new way through the lens of code. Whether they become computer scientists or not, the skills your child will learn from coding will apply to the rest of their academic careers and lives.
