In fact, it’s becoming a skill that they’re more than likely going to need as they grow up and enter the job market. But adding more technology into a child’s day when they’re already filled with computers, tablets, apps, and video games isn’t the most enticing idea either.
But what if you could combine them? What if you could use the video games that they love so much to teach them this necessary skill? What if they could learn to create video games rather than spend all of their free time playing them?
With Simply Coding, you can!
The Simply Coding program was designed by professional programmers to give your kids a coding education that is not only meant to teach them how to build games and learn coding, but also to expand their critical thinking skills and their ability to innovate.
And just in case you’re wondering, you won’t need any special equipment and their are no strict system requirements. The program works on any PC or Mac with internet access.
The program itself has been approved by school systems in Utah as a school curriculum and is the perfect addition to any homeschooling curriculum as well.
While I personally take care of the majority of the homeschooling when it comes to our children, this presented the perfect opportunity for us to get my husband a little more involved in the homeschooling lessons as well.
The lessons include simple step by step instructions that your child can easily follow with, or without, a little adult help.
Better yet, once they’ve finished this particular set of lessons, they can move on to some of Simply Coding’s other programs including some for creating Minecraft mods, phone apps, and more!
Overall, this is a fantastic coding education for children that is easy enough for them to follow while still challenging them to think critically and expand their problem solving skills.
