Best coding toys and programming games for kids

Best coding toys and programming games for kids | 21st century Special Education | Scoop.it
Parents might have heard of STEM, which stands for four specific disciplines: science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in those subjects in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning programme based on real-world applications.

While parents are used to spending money on books, toys and gadgets that help their offspring learn to count and read, getting kids hooked on coding or other STEM subjects will look daunting to say the least.

For the purposes of this feature we are describing some products as “toys” or “games” when they are or can be actually a whole lot more. We’ve described them this way because we’re looking at products that kids will want to play and interact with.

If they think that the Educational Thing is a toy they are more likely to play with it, rather than just do it. Learning through play is one of the best ways of picking up new skills, and overcoming what can at first appear rather daunting educational challenges.
