Preparing my kids for the future!
It's no secret programming and coding is going to be a required skill to function in the future just like knowing how to read, write, and at least be able to do algebraic equations. With that said, I bought Learn to Code with Minecraft BECAUSE my kids already understand the game and I must say, I'm truly impressed by the service and quality of this program.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their share screen feature which is when you get stuck on something, you have the option to stop and learn from a tutorial, message a teacher, or reach out to one of their tech to share your screen so they can point out where you went wrong. Of course, there's always Youtube to find the answer ourselves but it's nice to have different options within the tutorial to help make everything easier to learn.
Once you make it, you use it! My kids were making all kinds of useful tools to the game and were able to test it, then use it right there!
I feel this is a learning tool both you, the parent, and the child should go through together depending on how young your children are. Mine are 7 & 9 but I'm only working with my nine year old for now. Don't expect to just give this to your child to figure out on their own even though I honestly believe my child could actually learn without me as the tutorials are simple and straight forward. I give it about another two months and my kid will be way ahead of me to the point she will use me as a review activity instead of a teacher. :P
