When it comes to finding out what our children want to do, parents often don’t like to make suggestions. After all, it is the life of your child – you shouldn’t really be trying to decide what they want to do for a future career. In a bid to help you with that, let us suggest one potential avenue. If you were to hear your child talking about wanting to be a games developer, or anything creative like this, introducing them to coding as soon as possible!you!
When teaching children to code, you need to find a way to do it with and without a PC. Whilst coding is naturally something that you need to do on a computer, it has drawbacks. For one, it’s not healthy to be at the PC all day. Two, you want your children to receive education from more than one source. When it comes to coding, though, working out what that might be is quite tough.
In a bid to help you out, here are 3 coding activities you can do without a computer.
Children exchange ideas and information with their peers and learn new technology in the classroom. They know far more than their parents who tend to use the same old computer to do the same old thing, every working day. Usually, parents are not exposed to new technology, unlike their children. So, of course, it's likely your child is better with computers than you!
If you're a mum or dad, you've probably been in a situation where your kid tries to get the Ipad or cell phone from you to play games, or just to master the numbers and letters. These are stages that you can’t escape, hence, you just have to embrace it. There also comes a time when you might wonder if the technology is a good or bad thing for your little kid.
Technology has certainly made life easier and more convenient today than ever. With just a snap of the finger, things can be done. Despite these changes and convenience that technology brought is a bigger impact on how children perceive things and on how they think on a higher level. Computational thinking means breaking big problems into smaller units that can be solved with a computer’s capacity. Collaborative problem solving is known as a foundation of computational thinking.
