What Are the Benefits of Learning to Code?


Since the whole world is run by or on computers, being able to code allows users to work in a wide variety of jobs, and is, therefore, an essential subject for both children and adults to learn. It will give you an idea of how the technology works, bring out your creative side and improve your critical thinking. With coding, the sky is the limit.


Although coding is a useful tool for people of any age, there are certain advantages to having your child start learning this subject as early as possible. You can read more about 15 Reasons Why Kids Should Learn Coding in our previous blog. In short, coding is probably one of the best ways to develop problem-solving and logic skills earlier in your child. Learning new organisational skills will also refine a child's mathematical and language skills and this will improve their academic performance. It will also allow your child to learn an entirely new language, one which will be present in almost every aspect of everyday life. Perhaps, instead of your child being glued their iPad screen all day, a course in coding will help them to start thinking about the programming and processes behind their device.


What is Scratch and ScratchJr Programming?


In a nutshell, Scratch Programming offers anyone new to coding a simplified introduction to programming using visual and fun-based computing language. Reviews on commonsense media.org show both parents and kids rating the programme highly with 4 out of 5 stars. Although Scratch and Scratch Jr Programming are both designed for students with little to no knowledge of coding, ScratchJr is designed for very young students at the beginning of their educational path and is focused more on using programming to create stories. Scratch is for slightly older students or adults and is focused on mixing media to create music and games.
