Cool Tools to Help Kids Learn to Code
When your kid starts talking about loops, go-to commands, and branches, it probably means she's learning to code, and that's a very good thing. In a technology-fueled world, coding is quickly becoming a prized, 21st-century skill. Plus, it encourages kids to become creators, not just consumers, of the technology they use. Coding apps come in a range of formats designed for different ages and abilities. They often incorporate bright colors, cute characters, and elements of game design to appeal to kids. Whatever your kid's level, there's a tool that will get her behind the computer curtain to actually create content.
