Learning how to code is more important than learning English as a second language as you can use coding to express yourself to the world, said ICanCode Founder.

Speaking at an assembly at Shue Yan University today, Law says coding should be required in every public school in Hong Kong since coding is a language that you can use to express yourself to 7 billion people in the world.

Code runs everything. And as coding increasingly becomes one of the most highly priced skillsets globally, digital literacy and the future of coding becomes a central issue among the community. 

“If I were a student and I were 10 years old, I think it would be more important for me to learn coding than English,” said Law, noting that coding was the language that everyone needs, and not just for the computer scientists.

Of course, it's in Law's best interest to have the world learning how to code. She runs a tech company that depends on access to a constantly growing pipeline of talent and has been advocating the wide application on STEM education.

It could be in all of your interests: studying coding could increase your chances of pulling in a big salary, as more than a third of the highest paying jobs in China right now require some familiarity with computer programming, said Law.

Law has been working on the STEM project since 2016, one of its programs is called TEALS, or Technology Education and Literacy in Schools. This program places “trained computer science professionals in high school classrooms.” The goal is to train teachers in computer science-related subjects.

“Creativity is the goal. Coding is just to allow that. Creativity is in the front seat; technology is in the backseat. It is sort of the blend with both of these that you can do such powerful things now.”
