Transitional Coding

Kids can learn to code using tangible toys to ease transition

Implications - As the world becomes increasingly digitized, parents recognize the value of teaching children coding at an early age. Recently, more tangible playthings can be observed in this space that allow children to approach coding in phases, beginning with spatial understanding and basic problem solving. This tactical approach to digital training eases the transition from traditional toys to those of the future.
