I just signed Nicholas up for a FREE online course called HTML 101: Basic Web Programming. It is a self-paced course comprised of 14 lessons. It is designed for ages 9 and up.
By the end of the class, Nicholas will be able to produce web pages that include style tags, tables, fonts, links, images, and videos. It is very basic but what a great skill to learn at such a young age!
Computer programming is such a great skill to have because it is applicable in just about every field of study out there.
"Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains."
Bill Gates, Founder and Chairman, MicrosoftI took several computer programming classes when I was young. I remember taking a Pascal class over a summer when I was probably in middle school or high school. I've taken a few other courses since then including a college level class or two at LSU. While the specific coding languages I learned are not helpful to me as they are obsolete now, I did learn some great information about how computers work and I developed a good understanding of coding in general. I still apply this knowledge today as I write on this blog.
But don't take my word for it. Check out this video below for insight from some of the leading computer programmers and engineers.
