Benefits of teaching your kids to code

Free Minecraft Coding class available now

Code.org: Learn today, build a brighter tomorrow…and learn to code for free!

Code.org’s online courses are divided into grades K to five, grades six to 12, and finally beyond K to 12 which offers resources and opportunities for continuing the path in computer science. For example, let’s look at K to five, code.org’s first level of coding courses:

Ages four to seven-year-olds are taught an introduction to computer science along with an Internet safety course video titled, “Safety in my online neighbourhood,” a must-watch for kids of all ages. Computer science subjects include, “learning how to drag and drop” “sequencing,” “programming,” “loops,” and “events,” which ultimately instruct the kids how to create their own app, game, or computer drawing.

If your kids are Minecraft aficionados, code.org offers Minecraft tutorials that teach them how to build underwater worlds using code in Minecraft Voyage Aquatic, plus take a coding journey through Minecraft’s Hero’s Journey and more. They even have an offline version to download for those that don’t have Internet or have limited Internet access.

Code Academy: 47 million learners and counting.

The Code Academy Pro subscription app offers members-only content including exclusive courses and quizzes, plus real-world, portfolio-ready projects and plenty of community support.

For Code Academy kids, they can submit their own games that they coded to Katie, and she’ll not only play the game, she’ll also examine the code to see how the game was made. All the kids need to do is leave their game code in the comments in CodeSpark Academy app.

Once again, with many free, online courses to choose from, there is zero risk for the parents and almost unlimited coding possibilities for the kids.
