The recent evolution in the education sector is much appreciated. The younger generations are learning with new technologies. Actually, the investment is welcomed in the younger generation. The joking part is that they will earn to pay for our pensions indirectly (it is just a joke). By teaching them the usefulness of technology, they will know what to do with such technology in the future rather than misusing it and coding is such a skill that ensures that they know how the software was built.
We should ensure that they learn coding from the young age. Coding is the new language. The learning is important but not in the most entertaining way rather to let them manipulate the technologies. The shift of industries to technology will see that our younger generations are coders who can interact with robots as robots will manufacture and employees will be their commanders. This is where jobs will be created. Now, how do we know they are learning the right things? They should be given a multiple choice test at the end of every week where they can easily remember their notes and just tick the right answer from their tablets. The coding part may be inserted later when they learn to remember things easily.
Coding are actually very funny at the start stage and easy at the later stages. This is where the investment in the younger generations is taking us. They can start with ‘hello world’ in the command prompt. The programme may start at primary schools and then reach secondary schools. University students may be employed (who have learnt coding) on a part time basis to teach them once a week and they may also get a pocket money as reward and they may also have an interaction with the students rather than keeping attached to technology and everybody will have a new experience.
There may have argument that it is difficult for children to learn algorithm. But they will learn in the easiest way and with dedicated softwares and not those that uses algorithmic sequences to reach the same exact results. On top, it is just showing to them how they could write a simple game or develop a calculator then later they could go to higher phases.+2
