If your kids are anything like mine, they spend a LOT of time playing video games on their computers and phones. They are constantly obsessed with a new app or game or even the old favorite Minecraft. I love the creativity Minecraft promotes but I thought it was time to take the kids’ interest in technology to the next level.
So I was thrilled when we discovered Youth Digital’s online courses. Kids ages 8-14 can log onto an online course and learn how to create their own Minecraft server, design a fashion collection, animate a movie, design a 3D video game or even create a mobile app or video game.
The courses are easy to follow and my 12 year old did the first lesson and already had his own Minecraft server that he programmed using Java. He can’t wait to continue building and is already planning what course he’ll do next. The lessons are engaging, interactive and fun.
I love how this is empowering him to create with technology instead of just blindly using it. These courses truly make learning fun.
