Coding for all with Kubo

Our lives are so much connected with apps we use. App development has become a hot sort job all across the world. Equipping kids to a future beyond apps is essential and Coding is the best possible way. This article talks about App, Coding and early education system.

Coding through STEM for kids is the next big change in educational system.

Coding has spread across the globe and chances one can stumble upon an ad or an article about coding is probably more. Many countries across the globe is now incorporating coding in the early education syllabus for kids. The importance of coding has grown just like learning essential language and math. Coding resources are now available for everyone irrespective of the age. The fact that now even a 5-year old can get on coding and built their own interesting stories and games defines the possibility it can bring for the future.

Our everyday life is so much connected to apps, both professionally and personally. Every need of a human is being satisfied through apps, be that of finance, fitness or anything. On a broader sense, if we look at the picture of apps in our lives, we will understand that they have taken up our lives. How they control over room temperature, car and our payments? The fact that these apps are controlling every human aspect isn’t strange anymore.

Building app has become one of the profound jobs these days. Industries that have existed for years are being radically disrupted and transformed into apps. The demand for custom software is more and we know how they information technology sector is in bloom. Interestingly, a recent study showed that almost 90% of companies are weak in bringing ideas that can make considerable change to the future or now. Is learning code the solution for the future? Any app works on codes. Codes are the basic of every app we use everyday. With apps changing the world around us, it’s important to teach more people how to code. Coding once implemented in student syllabus can definitely bring considerable change in the field of science and technology. The fact that technology now dominates all industries defines us the need of not just computer literates but people who can code. Coding is the foundation for software development. The world currently requires more software developers than anytime before. Many computer companies across the world are finding youngsters who are keen in coding and are inducted as early employees. Not just the professional way, but coding can help everyone to learn quicker the other aspects of technology,​plus mean you are more digitally fluent. In today’s ever more digital job market, this can only be of benefit. Coding is a skill that can be sharpened using your own ideas. The possibilities of coding is limitless and therefore it accommodates all kinds of ideas and can be tested in real time. An idea can be developed, designed and modified using coding which makes it time saver and money. Outside the general application of coding, coding can help anyone to be logical and help them improve their problem solving ability. Learning to code is like an exercise session for the “left” side of the brain. Coding for big companies always involves too many brains working to a common objective. Coding can therefore help to create great professional relations and make healthy conversation and brainstorming sessions with co-workers. The learning process can make every individual confident enough to face harsh situations in life. It’s also quite an addictive process – the more you learn, the more you’ll want to learn. Knowing that any problem which could stump most people is easily solved by you is empowering. Unlike any educational course which requires a university degree or regular schooling, coding doesn’t need a formal education. It doesn’t cost time or money. These days, coding can be learnt online, through educational reformers like ATLAB or many other online/offline sources.

Coding for all with Kubo

Kubo Robotics is changing the global education scenario since its initiation in 2015. The schools and governments across the globe has understood the need of teaching a generation of digital natives how to communicate and understand technologies. So, what is Kubo? Kubo is a small robot that consists of a body with two wheels and a detachable head. Each head is different and functions different from the tiles they are entitled to. Kubo is very simple and kids can easily understand the working of the robots along the tiles.
Tiles are used to define a specific task which is then asked the robot to recognize and act accordingly. Kubo doesn’t require any screens which makes it easier for learning for anyone. The endless possibilities of tile arrangement can make anyone think and design functions which are made real with the Kubo robot. These educational robots along with many modern educational tools can equip kids or anyone to critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. These provide children the knowledge to tackle problems of the future.
