What makes coding so important for children ? Firstly, what is 'code' ? Code lets us speak to computers , and more importantly, lets us tell computers what to do. It drives the software in the numerous things we do every day and is used to run social media, make apps on your phone, and build video games.
Code is the hidden language behind how computers communicate with each other and as the digital world expands, coding will become an increasing important factor in our children's future career prospects.
Coding will also become a part of the primary school curriculum. People often say that while they are using computers and laptops, they are not sure how they work. By explaining how they work on a fundamental level, we at JAGGO, hope to give children a head start in understanding the technology of the digital world and to have fun in the process.
JAGGO Education aims to support coding education with the introduction of Road To Code unplugged resources from HABA Pro Germany. These hands-on resources explain in a meaningful way how computers work. The Rode to Code teaches children the skills that will be useful in a digital world and beyond.
