With the New ScratchJr App, Any Child Can Learn Coding on the iPad Today
review by Matt Doyle on
As computers and digital devices become commonplace, computer programming is becoming an increasingly useful skill for kids to learn. Many schools are now teaching coding skills as part of their curriculum, even with students as young as five or six. Some educators such as MIT’s Mitchel Resnick go as far as to say that coding is the new literacy — as important to a child’s education as reading and writing skills.
The great news is that, thanks to modern technologies such as the iPad, young kids can pick up coding skills even before they can read and write. This is exactly what ScratchJr is designed for.
