Why we’re excited by Swift Playgrounds






By anyone?s standards, coding isn?t exactly easy to get acquainted with ? and even more so for a child. That?s why Apple?s Swift Playgrounds app is a genuinely exciting idea that could soon usher in the next era of developers and coding enthusiasts.
The app is a free download for the iPad and features an array of basic coding lessons and challenges. For children it offers the perfect mix of both fun and education, with an array of colourful characters on hand to guide them through their coding journey step by step. During the unveiling, an array of games and animations were showcased, all aimed at keeping budding coders raring to learn.
?I wish Swift Playgrounds was around when I was first learning to code,? said Craig Federighi, Apple?s senior vice president of Software Engineering. ?Swift Playgrounds is the only app of its kind that is both easy enough for students and beginners, yet powerful enough to write real code. It?s an innovative way to bring real coding concepts to life and empower the next generation with the skills they need to express their creativity.?

Each lesson within Swift Playgrounds has been specifically designed to help children come to terms with core coding concepts, such as creating basic functions, performing loops and accounting for variables. Being able to simplify each lesson down to the basics is Apple?s way of hoping that the lessons will be able to build confidence and skill levels in children. Of course, Apple will also be hoping for involvement from parents, keeping their child engaged and motivated to continue the course. In addition to the set of lessons built into Swift Playgrounds, Apple will be releasing regular challenges, where they can compete to set high scores and also put what they?ve learnt to the test, without it actually feeling like an assessment. Also included is an array of built-in templates, aimed at helping young coders to express what they?ve learnt in their own time. Templates can be customised in a wide variety of ways, whether it?s by editing the core code to add graphics, or perhaps by even implementing their own interactions. Essentially, they put the control in the palms of the budding coder. There?s also some prominent social features included within Swift Playgrounds, aimed at getting young coders to work together to resolve problems, increase their imagination and improve their skills.
?The new Swift Playgrounds app from Apple is one of the most powerful, yet approachable, educational coding apps we?ve ever seen, and we can?t wait to incorporate it into our upcoming camp curriculum,? said Jean MacDonald, founder of App Camp for Girls. ?It?s a fun and intuitive way for our students to learn the basic principles of coding using the iPad, and also become skilled in Swift ? a language that can grow with them in whatever they choose to do.?
Once the young coder has built up a repertoire of coding skills, they can then take what they?ve learnt to the next level. Swift Playgrounds provid...
