If children are to become technology aces, maybe you should think about it too!
As of this September, a change in the curriculum in British schools means that every child between the ages of five and sixteen must be taught to code. This idea is already in place in different schools around Europe and seems to be growing in popularity.
What is Coding?
Coding, or programming, is the language used to create anything from computer functions to internet content. The mixtures of words and symbols create instructions for the computer which allows it to produces the websites.
Although ICT is already compulsory for every child in school, it is often basic and uncomplicated. This new, much more comprehensive addition to ICT lessons highlights the necessity for a computer literate generation.
The British government deem this technological language so important that they believe every child would benefit from having knowledge of it. And, like any language, the earlier a child begins to learn it, the easier it sticks.
What this Change Means
What this change in the curriculum highlights is that technology is so relevant in today’s world it has become as important as learning geography or history, for example. An ever-increasing number of jobs and courses now require a certain level of knowledge about computers and the way the internet works. It seems reasonable then, to believe that we should all have a basic knowledge of how these things work.
