Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.
~ Benjamin Franklin
As a teacher, my role is to teach students how to think, rather than what to think. As an ICT teacher, I aim to help students not only to know how to operate computers, but to use technology as a tool for organization, communication, research, and problem- solving. Therefore, I always encourage my students to learn coding.
Code is the language we use to instruct computers, which involves typing in step-by-step commands for the computer to follow. Actually, computers are not clever but very obedient. They will do exactly what you want them to do if you can tell them how to do it correctly.
Learning to code is not always about creating a finished product, whether you’re building software, apps or websites. It helps students to understand computational thinking, logic and problem-solving skills, which can be applied in any subjects.
Boys and girls, let’s start CODING!!
