CODING



Mark Zuckerberg, Co-founder of Facebook once said "In fifteen years we'll be teaching programming just like reading and writing ...and wondering why we didn't do it sooner."

Yes it's so very true, the next big revolution for the coming Generation is going to be CODING.

But why Coding?
Coding is the A,B,C of the much used Internet and to lot other things that we involve ourselves in the daily life. From our phones, to apps we use, to even now the blog we read...it all needs code to run. So it's so very important to teach our kids "How to Code".

Wondering how can that be possible to teach a 6 year or even a 10 year old to code, when most of us ourselves are illiterate in writing codes. 
                   But yes, it is possible through Code.org.

Code.org is dedicated to the vision that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn to code.
They have a great curriculum for kids to learn all about coding in a fun way.They have got workshops, step by step courses which has a fun way of teaching about CODE.

The image below is a beginner course. It might just look like a normal game, but when the kids play it they learn so much beyond the game.






Below is a video where Mark (Facebook co-founder) teaches the concept of "Loops" to the kids in the course. This makes Coding really interesting to watch with no more complex teaching.



Happy Coding,
