5 Good iPad Apps for Teaching Kids about Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Good iPad Apps for Teaching Kids about Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology | Scoop.it

"Teaching kids how to code is no brainer, there are now several digital platforms where learners get to learn everything about coding from the basics to the advanced levels and without having to pay a dime. I personally learned about HTML and CSS coding through an online website called W3schools and never had any course at school or paid anybody to teach me. I am not an HTML expert now but at least I can tweak my blog template, add widgets, write codes for tables, chart and several other commands."
