  1. Its agood implication for developing countries like kenya..

    ኢትዮጵያ should follow this curiculem

  2. This is not true. South Africans have been doing coding at school for decades. Irresponsible journalism.

    1. Hi Verushca,
      The following is an excerpt from South Africa’s Department of Basic Education Annual Performance Plan 2022/2023 (you can google it):

      “…the pilot of the draft Coding and Robotics Curriculum Grade R-3 and 7 during the third term of the 2021 academic year is a critical milestone towards this reality. The full-scale implementation for these grades is planned for the 2023 academic year. The Coding and Robotics pilot for Grades 4-6 and for Grades 8 is planned for 2022 and will be followed by a Grade 9 pilot in 2023. The full-scale implementation for Grades 4-6 and Grade 8 is planned for 2024, and Grade 9 in 2025. As Coding and Robotics is a new initiative, the focus will be on the upskilling of teachers to be trained to teach this new subject in collaboration with Higher Education Institutions.”

      South Africans might have been doing coding in school for decades but has it been part of an official, nation-wide curriculum all along? It seems not. I would appreciate it if you could do some research on your own before using labels such as “irresponsible journalism” on this site, or just any other site for that matter.
