Coding as a Second Language (CSL)
Coding is becoming the language and fundamental skill of the 21st Century. We need to treat coding as a language and introduce the skill at an early age for easier acquisition
Learning a second language is easiest when you are young.
Researchers call the time in a child’s life when they’re best able to acquire a second language the “critical period.” This period begins at birth, when babies are primed and ready to learn whatever languages are spoken in their household. And while studies have shown that the critical period may last up to the age of 17, it’s best for children to begin their second language learning process before the age of ten. We Need to treat coding as an essential language of the 21st century and introduce coding and computer science at an early age
Better Fundamentals and Foundation
At the root of coding and computer science is computational thinking. This process and framework allows for coders to tackle the many problems and glitches coding can cause. Through a stronger foundation and fundamentals of computational thinking, coders can learn new languages and maneuver through the world of computer science
Language of the 21st Century
We Need to treat coding as an essential language of the 21st century and introduce coding and computer science at an early age. The children of today will be living in a world that is completely 3D immersive and relies on coding. People who have the skill of a coding language will have opportunities and skills needed to survive in a digital world
