Years ago, I start teaching my son how to programming. To him, use a computer is a normal thing and he is very happy to learn it. In the Montgomery County Public Schools, all students have a Chromebook and use it to learn math and reading in class.
I share the resource I used in this blog.
- Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu/): A visual programming language for children developed by MIT. My son’s school teaches Scratch in the gifted program. This is a game developed by my son.
- Swift Playgrounds (https://www.apple.com/swift/playgrounds/): It is an iPad app that for learning Swift. Swift is a programming language developed by Apple. You can create a mobile app using Swift. This app is very fun.
Bill Gates learned to code when he was in high school in 1969. In 2012, there was a 12 years old kid developed an app and presented it in the TED (A 12-year-old app developer | Thomas Suarez). Now is 2018, when will you start teaching your kid to code?
