We posted awhile ago about a school where programming had become a core subject in schools in Estonia from grades 1 through to 12. Well it seems they are definitely on the right track, and Code.org has created this video to tell you why.
Learning the basics of coding is almost a necessity these days. No matter what field you are in, you are bound to, at some point, come across code. Whether it’s literal programming to calculate, predict or analyze data, or whether its design code for a website, gadget, or app – there’s bound to be somewhere. Usually, there will be someone around you who would be able to help, but in a world of over 7 billion people, it’s becoming important to be useful yourself.
