We all heard so many stories from our grandparents during our childhood and after listening to the stories our grandparents always ask did you get the moral of the story?????

Has anyone ever thought of relating stories with the concepts of computers and how we can do that??

Let’s start with a small story itself.

There was one boy named Sidhaant who loved to solve mysteries and puzzles. One day he was alone at home. His mother was gone to the market and meanwhile Sidhaant felt very hungry (now here the problem arrives), so he went to the kitchen to search for some food in the fridge. There he saw bread, butter, mint sauce and tomato ketchup and then suddenly he had the idea to make a sandwich for himself. 

Unfortunately he didn't know much about how to do that but as we all know he loves to solve mysteries and puzzles and always wants to engage himself to find the solution. So he decided to give it a try and start making sandwiches. Firstly, he took a plate and one piece of bread and spread butter on it, then he took the other piece of bread and spread the tomato ketchup. As he didn't like the mint sauce much so he skipped it. Then he combined both the breads and sat on the chair enjoying the sandwich.

Have you ever wondered if every story has some coding concepts included in it?

Yes, As you see above, The story has a step by step process of making sandwiches Similarly we follow the step by step process for the solution in coding through which the learner can enhance their logical thinking, decision making skills, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, etc.

Now let's take a ride to our fantasy world of coding….

Coding is like a game. It’s very engaging for all age groups of children in which they enjoy telling stories by using grids and maps. Coding involves spatial reasoning and logic which further helps children to think about direction, location, movement and strengthens their math skills. It involves the process of creating step-by-step instructions which a computer understands and needs in order for its programs to work. Gaming systems, tablets, cars, cell phones, even washing machines!—all use coding concepts to function properly. There are 21st century skills that are valuable for children’s future success in our digital world.

Let’s explore why programming/coding is important in the early age group? 

When we incorporate programming into early learning, we immerse children in versatile activities that align with standards in multiple areas, like math, problem solving, communication, and literacy. Precoding activities offer children opportunities for interaction and collaborative learning, as well.

When activities like coding provide a challenge for the user or when there are several ways of solving the same problem, children can consider multiple paths for arriving at a solution and choose the most efficient strategy. 

Early coding is fun and exciting. The earlier children explore the basics of coding, the more easily they will be able to learn, understand, and apply coding later in life. preschooling age is just the right age to begin learning!

Top Gurgaon schools believe in making our learner’s a real life problem solvers. That's why we introduce coding from a very early age. Children should be introduced to directional language, like up and down, backward and forward, and left and right.

There are many learning activities where children are already engaged in that relate to coding. Let us understand with an example

Here learners of grade 3 are playing a maze game where one learner is giving instructions to the other learner about the directions and the number of steps he/she needs to move. This game teaches learners important skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and creativity.

As per the new NEP (New Education Policy), coding has been introduced for young learners through different platforms such as MIT app inventor, Scratch, MSW Logo, Hour of code, Minecraft etc. Thus, every top ranked school in Gurgaon has integrated coding as an important tool for learning.
