Programming is A Basic Literacy in the Digital Age.

Kids are growing up in a very different world than that of their parents. Cellphones, computers, Youtube, Netflix, and Facebook are embedded in their daily lives. Even toys are digital, and many are programmable, such as Legos and the new-generation LeapFrogs.
Programming is a basic literacy in the digital age.
It is one thing to know how to use these technologies. It’s another, however, to understand the logic behind them. When learning to program, kids understand and tinker with the digital world they inhabit. Coding draws back the seeming “magic” of technology so they can truly understand the logic and science that controls this technology–a discovery that is all the more magical.

Our reliance on technology will only increase. The students of today must be able to not only passively consume this technology, but also to understand and control it, becoming an active part of this huge digital shift.

Learning how to program is like learning any other language in that the skill must be practiced and tested out. Just as languages open up the ability to communicate with worlds of people, programming gives children the ability to create technologies that impact those around them. With just a computer, kids can use their programming skills to build things that could change the world.

Scratch's and Tynker’s guided learning systems allow kids to choose their own learning path and transition from block-based coding to text coding when they’re ready. If your child likes Minecraft, they’ll love learning to code as they mod Minecraft. And children with a passion for gaming can learn to code as they build their own games.

If your kids aren’t learning how to program, now’s the time to start!
