Coding Nurtures Academic Excellence
While logic and problem-solving skills play an inherent role in better math and science grades, studies show that coding has a profound effect on the brain itself.
A 2014 study
found that coding—and an understanding of its processes—activates five regions in the left hemisphere of the brain that are associated with the following:
- Verbal and numerical memory
- Natural language processing
- Artificial language processing
Proficiency in artificial language processing has been shown to improve grammar skills and pattern detection, while natural language processing may help with reading comprehension and foreign language learning.Coding Develops Planning and Organization
To adequately solve a coding problem, children must map out their ideas, design actionable plans, and follow through on their goals. The practice of planning and organizing your thoughts before executing tasks also helps kids with:
- Essay writing
- Decision making
- Challenging math and physics assignments
- Engaging in difficult conversations and debates
In the coming generation, we will see entrepreneurs as young as 14-year old. Child of the future will own Home Inc. and deliver an eco-friendly 3D printed home to the global clients with branches on Mars!
