A recent study done by Professor David Simkins of the Rochester Institute of Technology found that roleplaying games (RPGs) like Dungeons and Dragons can be extremely beneficial for students. The research he conducted showed that RPGs boosted learning, improved imagination and stimulated intellectual curiosity. The evidence was compelling - it showed that by playing RPGs, students improved their socio-emotional skills which helped them interact and learn better at school or college. There were also benefits on a wide scale academic level.

One of the most pleasant parts of our work is to go to a village where we are going to demonstrate science to children. We work very informally, usually where we are known at least to the children who sometimes turn up and talk to us, sitting on a log under a tree, ask us things and, as likely as not, give us more information than we give them.

This book is particularly a preparation for understanding Science. Science is built from curiosity, experience, analysis and finally the expression of a discovery. The main part of this process is arranging objects, activities and ideas so as to create a new order or pattern. Science is the discovery of new patterns. This book is to help children discover the patterns and arrangements of the world around them by using their hands, senses and minds. Understanding is the discovery of order.

As a teacher, I believe that children retain a subject that is delivered in the form of stories far longer than they do through conventional teaching methods. Storytelling, especially in the case of languages, engages children in such an effective manner that they are able to remember concepts or characters for a longer period of time.

“If I summarise the core beliefs and pedagogic practices that we saw in these classrooms, the foremost would be the teachers’ belief that ‘every child can learn; the responsibility is ours.’ These teachers try to make the learning experience interesting for every child and respect the existing knowledge they bring to the classroom, using it to build new knowledge… These teachers help children connect concepts with the world around them…” (S Giridhar, 2019. p122)

The future of coding is set in stone. According to Forbes, coding will be even more relevant in 2025 than it is now. What is it about coding that makes it such an important skill to learn and demanded in so many industries?

Just like how English is the global business language, coding is the language of technology. As we approach the peak of artificial intelligence (AI), teaching kids to code becomes a crucial part of their education.
