Every parent dreams of raising the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg whenever they see their child navigating technology with the greatest of ease.
If you want to see if they really have an interest in computer programming, show them hopscotch.
Not the sidewalk chalk game; the free iPad app that makes creating games, animations and interactive programs easy for anyone.
Your kids can learn the basics of computer programming without knowing how to type because Hopscotch is a visual programming platform.
They can create their own programs by dragging and dropping blocks of pre-written code.
Let’s face it, computer science skills are pretty valuable and if your child happens to enjoy creating things, the Hopscotch app could be the start of something amazing.
Even adults that have a passing curio sity in programming can learn lots from this simple to use app.
You don’t have to be a nerd to work with code, so give it a try at https://www.gethopscotch.com and don’t forget to invite me when your child’s company goes public!
