3 Reasons YOU Should Learn to Codeby Ben Ehrlich. Posted on Sep 07, 2020
✓ Fostering Your Creativity
Ever played a game online and wondered the kinds of things you could do to improve it? Or pictured yourself having your own site to promote a business or a club? Creativity, of the quality of expressing yourself, is something anyone who learns a language can acquire. By coding you can give yourself a new outlet to express your creativity through building online. You’ll have more room to imagine creating your own sites, games and applications and now have the knowledge to do so. By building on your coding knowledge, you’ll discover just how big and complex the world of computer coding can be and discover possibilities that you may not have even imagined for yourself before.
✓ Learning Persistence & Problem Solving
✓ Advancing Communication Skills
Not only will you learn a language that allows you to communicate with computers in ways that’ll allow you to further understand and take advantage of our technological society, but you’ll have a whole new way to communicate and understand fellow coders both face-to-face and online. Some might think that coding is a completely independent practice. When you code, a lot of the times you need to work on your own and that is true. But there are many cases in which coders will need to work with others to make what they’re building work as best as they can. In games like Minecraft and sites like Tumblr coders can work together to create worlds or create themes for their blogs. In class like those given at Coditum (and SummerTech), kids work alongside peers with a common interest in technology to help one another, learn from one another and make the most out of their coding education and experience.
