So in case you haven’t noticed, there’s this thing called the World Wide Web, also known as the internet. I’ve heard that people that know how it works can make a lot of money. One of those people is my hubby. Aside from sitting through a bunch of meetings, he also apparently spends a few hours a week programming on the web for his company. Me, I know how to type. When something doesn’t look right I have to call over the hubby to take a look and fix it.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get your son or daughter started down this road to knowledge and security?  Now with KidCoder you can!

RE13-l

KidCoder is a series of books with instructional videos and online exercises designed to teach kids of all ages (well, 10 year olds and up) a variety of programming topics in a fun and easy to follow manner. There is a course for younger kids on basic windows programming, a course for older kids on windows programming and one for Java programming. The program that I received is for Beginning Web Design. The course is designed for anyone from 4th to 12th grade. I have a niece who is going into the 7th grade and she fancies calling herself a “geek.” Now, she can actually be one! <<< My husband’s words, not mine. Yes, computer geeks actually call themselves geeks!

During the summer my niece and nephew spend a great deal of time at our home so we couldn’t have received the KidCoder course at a better time. I’ve even been picking and pecking around at it and picked up a few things here and there … yeah, I’m all technical and stuff now!

I definitely recommend KidCoder to anyone interested in learning more about web design, windows programming, or Java programming; even those of us older than the recommended age. 😉 Computer are the way of the future. We all need every tidbit of knowledge and information that we can get to help us achieve success when working with them.
