Coding with Minecraft: Codation
Coding with Minecraft
Learning how to code is going to help children develop fluidity in their thinking. Coding is sequential – it’s telling a story, where you need to know what to write and why one thing follows the other in a particular order. Most programming languages designed for kids usually use games to teach them how to code, and this requires them to follow (or even better create) a story line or sequence as they play and code.
Computer science is the new language of the world, and it’s also one of the fastest growing occupations. Almost every field of human endeavor relies more and more on software and software development for success. Other than coding and logic thinking being necessary skills, they’ll also give your child a chance to both be well paid in the future and also to do some of the more interesting and challenging jobs likely to be around.
That’s why Codation has brought Minecraft on board. It is a video game which allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world! Kids can learn how to use codes to control objects in the game!
