Dewan commented on Introduce computer programming at an early age

You are absolutely right, guardians can play a big role in it and I also would love to see teachers to step in to create some creative way to do programming for young students, such as desiging web pages with the theme of green or any other natural feature. It will also encourage them to be outdoor in some way.

Dewan commented on Introduce computer programming at an early age

Hi Joseph, I liked the idea as from IT background I understand the importance of programming and how creative it can be. However, I have one concern whether this would make children or encourage them to be indoor kids. I have seen kids now growing up with iPad culture love to spend more time with their iPad rather than to go out and chase butterflies. Any thoughts on that?

I know a guy from my high school and the only thing he dreamed about not to have a 9-5 job rather something very creative. Today he is a musician, leaving his dream. One of the happiest persons I have ever known in my life. He chased his own dream not other people's dream about him and I think that's what we need to start teaching to young people in school.
