Why is Advanced Education Schools highly invested in teaching its students coding? The answer is quite simple, we live in a digital age and everyone needs to keep up with all the technological advancements.
Coding is the ability to tell a computer what to do. When a student learns coding, they are able to interact and understand the technology around them; they are aware of how applications are created, how they work, how certain gadgets function and much more.
At Advanced Education Schools, it is not only about understanding the process but it is also about teaching what you have learned. For that exact reason, the school hosts an annual Hour of Code event which parents are invited to attend. The students take on the educational role and teach their parents what they have learned throughout.
Starting from the third grade and up to the ninth grade, students are taught coding; they learn how to input a set of instructions into the computer which it translates into codes and leads to its programming. They become capable of controlling and creating their own programs, websites or applications.
Such knowledge helps in the development of many skills; it tackles their communication skills, creativity, math skills as well as their own confidence. The ability to successfully code, gives an indescribable boost of confidence.
Whether these students want to grow up and work in programming or not, it is essential that they understand the basic concept. The school acknowledges the efforts and skills of every student; it is proud to raise generations that have grasped the knowledge of coding.
