Computer Programming for Kids Brings Down the Age Barrier
(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Using computers and mobile devices is second nature to the new generations of children. For this reason, knowing how to program is a great skill to have in today’s computing age, regardless of what the child may elect to do later in life. However, the programming editors are becoming increasingly complex and comprising more and more technologies, making them unsuitable as the learning tools and next-to-impossible for youngsters to use them.
“On the very first day that they used the new course, we were already noticing the big difference in students’ understanding and the rate of learning,” says Dr Alex. “Short of plugging into the system as in The Matrix movie, it is hard to envisage a simpler, faster, or more direct way to learn programming.”
The C Point team is confident that students can now master programming when they are as young as 12 and at the pace not seen before, in just two weeks. The next step? It is to bring the age barrier down even further by testing Computer Programming for Kids with 10 and 11-year olds.
