Importance of coding and Programming for Kids

Computer coding or programming is still considered by most as a highly technical activity which only a small percentage of people find interesting enough. But the truth is that coding is now considered as the latest type of literacy. It is a skill that is used every day all around today’s digital world.

The ability to communicate your thoughts in a logical and structured way is known as computational thinking which is exactly like the step by step instructions that are coded into computers and machines. Machines also replicate the process of thinking up and solving problems in a methodical way which is commonly used by software engineers, computer programmers and logistics specialists.

Learning to code is as simple as learning to ride a bike for young children. Kids as young as four-year-olds can learn the fundamental concepts of computing. With the help of latest and modern software, learning how to code has become even easier and interesting which makes the kids excited about computer programming.

Computer programming is seen as the fastest growing and high in demand profession for the next few decades, with the progress in the development of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining and robotics. Kids who are exposed to programming can develop their passion for it and discover how to apply these fundamentals in their life.
