Both parents and educators believe that in a country like India, where the education system grapples with lack of innovation, infrastructure, and archaic curriculum, coding is a well-structured way to introduce children to logical thinking and problem-solving.
Schools need to realize the importance of coding as a skill. They should create infrastructure to teach coding. First focus on simple, block based coding than real text based languages.
For teachers, it’s time for relearning, whether it is content or dissemination. They need to update themselves to catch up with students.
Some lecture in between the classes and after school classes, schools should engage coding with education system. Students can learn fast with live, interactive and gamified online sessions.
Courses should involve a wide range of topics such as creating animation, commercial-ready apps, games, creating advanced games and chatbots using artificial intelligence and more.
Live streaming also help students to learn coding skills with realtime feedback from their teachers. Indian schools should engage summer and winter vacation coding camps to handle extra pressure on school routine.
