In different times and different places, we have taught our children to grow vegetables, build a house, forge a sword or blow a delicate glass, bake bread, create a soufflé, write a story or shoot hoops.
Now we need to teach them to code.
Why should we teach them to code? Not so much as an end in itself but because our world has morphed: so many of the things we once did with elements such as fire and iron, or tools such as pencil and paper, are now wrought in code. We need to teach coding to help our kids craft their future.
You can get started today with coding. It easy and fun. I have selected a few resources to get you started, visit Hot Topics – STEAM – Learn to Code.
