Dr. Techniko recently posted a really great way to introduce kids to programming. By having the children’s parents act like the robots and giving the children a “Robot Language Dictionary” of simple action commands, the children can write down instructions for their robots to carry out. This is a fantastic way to teach kids planning, creative and logical thinking, and problem solving. One of the amazing things about Dr. Techniko’s write-up is his descriptions of how the children will naturally develop and discovery certain programming practices such as parametrization, composition, abstraction, and testing all on their own!
