Many parents are worrying about their kids career as competition is very high among this super intelligent generation. What does a kid want to be in life? A doctor, engineer, software engineer, a news reporter or what? Every profession has its own importance but the definition has changed with digitization of education and demand with new technological innovation. One thing is common among all and that is computer based education and application. The 21st century is the phase change of many things, whether we are Talking about education, Technology, lifestyle and health. These are totally dependent on Computer programming languages. Think about self driven cars, robotic surgery, AI, Industry 4.0, operate electronic appliances with the help of a smartphone, machine learning, cloud computing, interactive games, data handling and many more are nothing but “computer programming languages”. Earlier only computer engineering students  learnt these programming languages ( Java, Python, and C) and these tasks are quite difficult for many students to perform because of lack of knowledge and syntax and every students won’t able to think to choose as career but technological advancement make it so easy for everyone and thus kids coding appears  to build the programming concepts among kids in different way. The basic concepts for kids coding is drag-and-drop visual programming. Kids use to connect different blocks together to make successful programs. Visual programming is nothing but making computer coding without typing or syntax. After successful completion of kids coding, kids are able to  learn the basics, they can transform to more conventional programming languages like Python, JavaScript or C.

 Is Coding Really Necessary for Kids?

Kids Coding is the basic architecture in the digital world. It is a primary requirement for kids to understand the technology around them and be able to work accordingly. There is a huge competition among kids and to separate from rush kids learn coding at a young age and prepare themselves for the future. Kids Coding helps to build creativity, leadership, mathematics, logic, writing,communication and confidence among kids.

When you think about how the world is changing, kids coding is an extremely useful tool to adopt. There are an exponential number of businesses who are totally working on computer programming languages, not just those in the software sector. A kid who studies how to code will have the benefit in career with more job opportunities available to them in the competitive market, no matter which industry they plan to work whether it be in the software sector, finance, retail, health or engineering. This is a solid reason why coding should be compulsory for kids at primary ages.

Where to Learn Kids Coding ?

Where to code ?

Kids of all ages from preschool to high school can go for coding. At these ages kids use logical reasoning such as sequencing, abstraction, repetition, conditional statements, loops and various functions  and therefore they can learn these operations in coding. Your kids can learn coding from many resources like free apps, websites, webinars, and schools teaching coding for kids. 

There are many websites who allow kids to learn coding. For example Scratch, Code.org and Tynker. They provide development environments and help kids to make  creativity. This is not enough, there is more opportunity for those who prefer to learn with a guide can learn code at school in extra time, a franchise  learning center, or at an occasional camp.

So here are some popular websites who deal with kids coding and few of them are non profitable organizations.

How to Encourage Kids to learn Coding ?

The kids of this generation are very smart, they could use a smartphone or a laptop in a smarter way than elders, which I have noticed in my case also. Kids are fond of playing interactive games, paintings, quiz and are very smart to search from google what they need. Even they talk with Alexa in a smarter way. So this is the biggest advantage which is already having with all kids. Then what next to encourage them for coding?

We can encourage our kids to start with something by showing Youtube videos of what actually coding does. We can impress them with the “Hello World” story of programming languages. The basic mathematical operations can be performed with coding and all these are available in various social platforms in an attractive way. Building blocks can encourage them to play with and this can create lots of fun to kids. 

Parents must know of Kids Coding Modules and outcomes

Before putting your kids into kids coding world parents must know the course modules. They may be of the following categories:
