Happy New Year in advance and here’s hoping for a much more normal 2021 A question: hopefully @darkmagistric can answer this one for me and for my daughter as we are having quite a dispute... She does not want to write notes when she is planning and producing code for games and other Digital endeavours. I think as a 10-year-old who wants to develop her understanding of coding, she needs to plan ahead, record her tests, her ideas and her mistakes. We are at a bit of a stand-off, I want her to plan out her next game idea but she wants to get straight into coding and she is sitting there nodding and shaking her head as I dictate this note now on the iPad. Part of the problem is that she finds coding at school very limiting and boring and the aims are very low level - whereas at home, she can take more risk (in her opinion), just dive right into a computer program and try and do ambitious things, make mistakes and so on. However I want her to have a paper trail so that she can look back on mistakes and hopefully even learn from them - here, I’m using my experience of working with art students where I know that an art student needs to show mistakes, experiments, thoughts and processes to get better grades. So, should I just encourage her and let her carry on as she does (she’s nodding again) and discover for herself or should I try and encourage her to work in a way that I know schools will probably appreciate and give her credit for. (She is frowning at me here....) She has agreed to consider opinions of those who are already working in coding but I haven’t quite gotten her to agree to take your advice fully on board yet.
