IKnowItMOM, coding for children, children, technology for children, parents, life skills

Your child can code too.
It is OK, if your child is young. Mental ability is different than physical. Provide resources to the child and observe. If child doesn’t show interest, try again after some time. Never force.

It is OK, if parents don’t know coding. You can learn with your child!
If you search, ‘Coding for Children’ on Internet,  you will be overwhelmed with the number of choices you get.

How Your Child Can Learn Animation : Easy Way

IKnowItMOM, how children can learn animation, stykz, children, parents, learning skills, life skills

Instead of fighting with children on media time, how about we encourage them to create cartoons (or in technical words create animations)?. Animation involves observing real life objects and depicting them on the screen. This involves physics (how objects hit each other and bounce back, how animals move),  geometry (drawing shapes, views), anatomy(human and animal body structure), biology(textures of natural elements), mathematics(setting right frame per second) etc. This also helps children to understand how theoretical academic topics map to real life.
