    Teach a Child to Code

    Posted February 25, 2014 - 7:18 pm

    Children learn by playing. Smart people have known this for eons. Plato suggested that in order to teach, we should “Not keep children to their studies by compulsion but by play.” So if you want to teach a child to grow up and become a coder, the best way – according to some mighty philosophers – would be to play a game that teaches the concept. Later, when their minds are ready to sit down and work, they can learn the details. According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The child amidst his baubles is learning the action of light, motion, gravity, muscular force.” That is the sneaky plan behind a new game, Robot Turtles, from ThinkFun.
