This could be another opening where we restate how the world we live in is strongly dominated by technology, but we all know that right? Instead, in this article we will discuss shortly, why kids should be taught coding and above all why is it important and what benefits has for them?

Kids and teenagers are in daily contact with technology. The metonymy that the new generation have been born with a smartphone on their hands, goes to show that born in the technological era, in a way or another, young people have the tendency to surf the net and use technology. Coding gives them the opportunity to not only use technology, but create and invent new technologies.

Learning to code is like learning a new language, that is why young people have higher chances to learn better. In fact, coding can be taught easier to young ages.

Coding will help your kids to create a new set of skills, but it’s not only that. Coding is a long-term investment that can be brought up as a hobby. In the near future, looking at the job market and analyzing it, we can surely say that individuals with coding and programming experience and knowledge will have it easier to be spotted and to probably find a job.
