I retook a typing exam in elementary school because I couldn’t memorize the location of the keys.
I had the same learning curve with the Internet. It took me a bit to figure out that the “Enter” button drove me to NBA.com.
Fast forward 15 years to the Smartphone/Tablet era. Internet access and the keyboard are innate tools. It’s writing with a pen/pencil that must be learned.
Since typing is like walking, schools today should teach coding. I started to learn coding this week through Codeacademy, a free weekly course.
Coding is the creative behind the content on the Internet, kind of like the back of the fence. No one sees it but it has to be perfectly painted to be appreciated. And to work.
I just want a basic understanding of coding. If I’m good enough and passionate about it I’ll build websites and apps.
Coding is the new typing.
