17 Coding Challenges to Help You Train Your Brain | | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
We could say that coding challenges are great for:

learning new ways of doing things
practicing a new programming language
encountering critical problem solving
keeping our brain sharp and focused
having fun!
in my quest to find the best programming challenges, I narrowed the list down to five great resources, which I believe will help you immensely alongside your journey, or serve a great purpose for learning and exploring more areas of computer science.

5 Reasons Why Everyone Should Learn to Code

5 Reasons Why Everyone Should Learn to Code | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
The Computer Science Education Week, Dec. 5-11, is an annual initiative that mobilizes educators, parents, nonprofits and the industry to inspire all young people to learn computer science and open the door to a promising future. With our rising digital economy and the nonstop pace of technological change, we have an imperative to prepare young people to pursue careers that are in demand.

Computer science refers to the academic discipline of studying what can be done using a computer and how to do so. At the foundation of this is computational thinking, a mental process that allows one to formulate problems so as to design possible solutions that a computer or human can easily understand.

Coding is one way that computational thinking can be expressed. It is simply writing a list of step-by-step instructions for computers to perform what we want to do. More importantly, it provides everyone a platform to unleash our creativity to create software websites, games, and apps.

More than half of today’s jobs require some technology skills, and this will increase to 77 percent in the next decade, according to IDC. With youth unemployment in Southeast Asia alone almost three times that of total unemployment rate, coding and computer science serve as the gateway for youth to secure a more fulfilling career or even venture into entrepreneurship. In the Philippines for instance, an entry-level tech position pays 38 percent more than the minimum wage.

 

I strongly encourage everyone to try coding—and here’s why:
