I know I have continued to shout the “kids should code” argument a lot over my time here on the blog… But here’s a unique way to teach kids the fundamentals of things like code without necessarily making them feel like a computer programmer. I think the more kids we can get into things like music (especially the meticulously constructed kind rather than the passive listening kind), the more we can open up both the right and left brain. And the more we can get kids tapped into the left brain, the more doors open down the road because of their ability to critically and logically analyze any situation (be it in band practice or in the board room) to drive the best possible outcome.
Not saying every kid needs to become a DJ – but hey – it would at least give a pretty solid foundation in something that requires detailed planning and execution rather than letting them Instagram their lives away.
