Coding lessons at school-level help equip students with essential skills for the future
VKE believes that in today’s technology-rich world, coding is a skill that is in high demand. With an ever changing field of technology, there is a risk that we will be teaching students today’s techniques to solve tomorrow’s problems; by the time today’s students graduate, these techniques might already be obsolete. For this, the school has taken a systematic approach to include coding not just as a one-off activity but to take it from a design of the curricula which enables students to get continuous understanding and exposure to skills such as problem solving, being perseverant (to make mistakes, and learn from them, and correct them), creative as well as critical thinking – the future ready skills.
