Coding is an essential learning skill in this digital era.
Speaking as both a primary school teacher and a parent, I think it's important for children to have an understanding of and be able to work with the technology around them in many forms. When kids learn coding at an early age, it's strengthening a whole bunch of skills they don't even realise they possess.
Their creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, curiosity and maths skills.
With my teacher's hat on, I'm excited to see that the fundamentals of coding are logic, structure, sequence and algorithmic thinking – which helps enable kids to produce creative outcomes, like websites, animations and even apps (incredibly).
