Teach coding from a young age at school


CHILDREN are growing up surrounded by technology amidst IR4.0 (the Fourth Industrial Revolution), so computational thinking and coding should be considered essential abilities. As such, the Education Ministry should review if such critical skills and knowledge are being taught to primary school children.

The British and the Japanese are following Estonia in including coding as a compulsory subject at the primary level – in Estonia, students are taught at kindergarten about coding and the use of computers. Teaching coding from young will encourage children to be creative when using technology in their education and work later on in life.
