Kids Should Code

Many years ago when all of this kids and code discussion began, you could have characterised it has hype because the whole idea was new and novel to the education system. While this “learn to code” popularity spike wasn’t unfounded by any means, time would ultimately tell us if this would come to pass.

We’ve officially moved beyond simply saying “coding is cool, so go do it,” end of story. Instead, we are now saying, “coding is in fact cool, so go do it, but you should also go do it because you’ll be rewarded as a result.”

What makes this even better is that it’s not just the jobs or the coolness, either. But also the creativity, problem solving, collaboration, communication, and other skills ripe for improvement as byproducts of kids learning to code.

In other words, there are jobs, lots of them and jobs that pay very well.

kids should learn to code because:

– Coders are in high demand
– Coding provides a competitive advantage
– Coding knowledge allows students better understand the world
– Coding is fun and satisfying
– Coding improves creativity
– Coding improves problem solving
– Coding improves persistence
– Coding improves collaboration
– Coding improves communication
