‘When many countries take computer coding into teaching syllabus, Hong Kong is still laid-back.’ said by an entrepreneur of a computer coding.

Moni YL Law, the founder of ICanCode, pointed out that learning computer coding is as significant as learning Chinese and English in this era during the assembly in Hong Kong Shue Yan University this Tuesday.

However, the opportunity for children to gain access to a computer is less than those in foreign countries, for examples, generally students could use the computer once or twice per week while others have already learned computer coding during primary school, said Law.

Law has been engaging in information and technology sectors over ten years while she set up ICanCode in 2016 to promote STEM education. She also establishes the GPS Android Apps course and brings students to join various competitions in Korea.

‘Remembering to bring a Hong Kong student team to Korea for competition, once we took back our luggages, there was a robot came and provided service.’ said Law. She thinks technology in Korea have been well-developed because of computer coding.

She also mentioned that the Korean government is relatively willing to give support and resources to schools and companies, eventually, computer coding is widely-used in daily life.

Computer coding is the process of problem solving and expressing via computer. In 2017, Google invented AlphaGo and won Ke Jie in Chinese. Law determines it implies that somehow, AI or computer coding would be more capable than human-being.

‘With technological advancement in Internet, people are more able to search for the methods of coding via the free applications like Full Scratch and Google CS.’ sad Law.

She suggests that children should learn computer coding in a happy and comfortable environment instead of enforcing them to sit in front of a machine and learn properly, or else, they would resist everything.

‘There are so many advantages for children to learn computer coding, it is time for us to reach more and explore ourselves with computer coding.’ said Law
