Teach Children Code

It’s pretty obvious, that introducing children to coding is one of the most valuable experiences they can get exposed to early in life. Many questions arise regarding where to start the introduction, at what age, how to do it and what STEM toys, games, books and other resourses are the bet ones for this purpose. In this post I’ll be gathering links to resources that help teach children of various ages to code and another valuable posts discussing the matter.

Visual-programming languages such as Scratch, for children 8 and up, and Scratch Jr. for children ages 5 through 7, use tiles or blocks rather than text. Children snap blocks together into a series of steps to direct animations or games—teaching sequencing. They learn to repeat steps by nesting sets of blocks inside a command calling for a specified number of repetitions. Children also learn another programming concept, using conditionals, through the game. For example, they might instruct an animated figure, “If the next space is open, move forward; if not, turn right.”
