Who would have ever thought that the same kids you held in your arms as babies, were going to be speaking about programming-related terms much sooner than you thought? On top of it all – who thought you have no idea what they mean.
We know, as parents it becomes a struggle to fully comprehend what our kids are talking about, and it is amazing to see how fast they incorporate the newest terms from the worlds of technology and coding.
Our goal is to help you, we aim to be some sort of life vest waiting for you to use it whenever you need it. We want to be a source of information you go to when looking for new pedagogical approaches for your children when finding the best technology-related movies to watch with the family, or even to understand coding vocabulary that seems a bit complicated.
In this article, we will share with you the second part of this interesting and useful coding vocabulary. You’ll learn some terminology that will assist you when guiding your kids towards the creation of their very own app, game, software, or video.
Are you ready to learn? Because we are more than ready to teach you!
Technology is evolving. Terms are changing. Learning is required.
It is our responsibility to keep on learning. We cannot lay back and be comfortable with what we already know when the world is changing ongoingly. Our kids are facing issues that we never had to deal with in our own childhood, and therefore, they need a different kind of skill-set than the one our parents taught us.
Being future-ready is extremely important, and it goes beyond strengthening our soft skills and our problem-solving capabilities. One of the things that we should take into consideration is the need to master some coding-related vocabulary to better understand what is going on around us.
Are you ready to become a word-master of coding terminology? Let’s go…
Coding Vocabulary: More programming-related words you have to learn
Be sure to take notes, make your own version of these terms to better understand them. If there are any of these coding-related words you don’t fully comprehend, just leave a comment in the section below and we’ll get back to you with an answer as soon as possible.
Metaverse: This term became more popular in the last few weeks thanks to Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement. Facebook Inc. recently changed the name of its corporation to Meta and decided to focus almost exclusively on the creation of a metaverse.
The metaverse is a version of the Internet that is used to create shared virtual realities, and is frequently used as a type of social media focused on gaming and creation. In a larger sense, the metaverse may refer to the entire spectrum of augmented reality, and not just virtual worlds run by social media firms.
Augmented reality: According to different definitions, the term augmented reality refers to an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by perceptual information generated by computers.
It has evolved so much that it goes across different sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, and even olfactory. Yes! You can now smell the sweet flowers blooming during spring through augmented reality.
Function: According to the definition provided by Code.org, a function is a piece of code that you can easily call over and over again.
Machine learning: Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that enables computers to learn and improve on their own without having to be explicitly programmed. How is this done? Because computers and programs learn from experience and from the different behaviors of users.
Data science: This is a field that has been growing a whole lot in the last couple of years. It is an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, procedures, and algorithms to extract knowledge and insights from big amounts of data that are noisy, structured, and unstructured.
Another area of the same field is dedicated to actually applying that gained knowledge into actionable insights to a variety of areas such as marketing, branding, UX, UI, and product design.
Command: Code.org describes it in a simple and very efficient way. A command is an instruction for the computer. The word itself says it all, don’t you think?
Data: Data is simply information. When talking in computer-science terms, this information could be quantities, characters, or symbols that are the inputs and outputs of different computer programs.
App: This is something that your children can easily craft when participating in one of the live and online coding courses offered by Tekkie Uni. Besides that, an app is a computer program or specially designed to be used on a mobile device such as a phone, tablet, or watch. Nowadays, some apps allow you to manage your laundry machine from a distance, and even to clean your house while you’re away. Have you heard about the Internet of Things?
Your kids should learn how to code. The time is now!
Learning how to code has never been easier, funnier, and so enjoyable for our children. In the coding classes offered by Tekkie Uni, your kids will reach their full potential while understanding that mistakes are nothing more than just valuable learning experiences.
While learning how to program their own games, apps, and even how to create their YouTube or TikTok content as genuine pros, your kids will finally comprehend that when they really want something, there’s nothing that can stop them. They’ll understand that dreams can be turned into outstanding realities, and they’ll experience -hands-on- the unique feeling of achieving their goals.
