DOES CODING REALLY INCREASE THE IQ OF KIDS

IQ which is also known as Intelligence Quotient is the measure of a person’s cognitive or reasoning ability in numbers.

The impact of Coding on the life of Kids is numerous and increasing the IQ of kids is part of it. Below are some cognitive skills Coding build in Kids:

COGNITIVE SKILLS CODING BUILD IN KIDS

  • Visual Processing
  • Problem - Solving
  • Focus

HOW CODING INCREASES KIDS' IQ (COGNITIVE SKILLS)

- CODING AND VISUAL PROCESSING: Visual Processing Skills is a Cognitive Skill that enables the brain to turn visual displays into information the brain can make use of. This skill has to do with the eyes and the brain working together to carry out a task.

When kids code especially during App development, the visual process helps them to relate the picture of the kind of App they have in mind, the App they eventually come up with, and their code.

Kids who have high Visual Processing skills learn faster than others. It is therefore important that this skill is enhanced in Kids and this can be done through Coding.

- CODING AND PROBLEM-SOLVING: Problem-Solving Skill is a Cognitive skill that enables Kids to identify problems and find solutions to problems.

When kids code, they constantly get faced with challenges (bugs) which leads them to Identify the problems (the kind of bug) and find solutions to the problems (fixing the bugs).

Children who have strong problem-solving skills never get stuck in challenges without finding the solutions which make them successful. Getting your Kids enrolled in Coding courses can build this cognitive skill in them.

  • CODING AND FOCUS: Focus is a Cognitive skill that ensures that Kids are able to sustain their attention on a particular thing over a period of time in order to achieve success.

Coding is a Technical Skill that requires a lot of focus. When kids code they are able to sustain their attention on a particular task and when his skill is built in Kids, they get determined and it builds a winning spirit in them.
Coding builds these Cognitive Skills in Children which in turn increases their IQ as they continually engage in their tasks. It is vital for Kids to Learn Coding to increase their IQ.

This post blew up on DEV in 2020:

πŸš€βš™οΈ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! πŸ₯³

Happy coding!
