By Anxhela Vincani, Leading teacher Albania

What sparked your interest in coding / Code Week?

In my opinion, current curricula do not include enough coding. As an IT teacher, I think that curricula should encourage young people to learn more about computer science and informatics in general. My desire to introduce young people to the fantastic world of coding led me to Code Week, using this platform my students are very involved in coding.

What are the top three reasons why everyone / kids should learn how to code?

Children should start coding due to several reasons, for me, the following are the most important: It helps them to understand and solve problems more easily. Many jobs involve coding at the moment, therefore it is important for kids to learn it.  Currently but especially in the future the skills one gains in coding will be of main importance for employment.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to learn / teach coding?

I would advise to start coding with simple languages ​​like Python. After this, the desire to learn more will make you eager to learn other languages that require more skills.
