We live in a digital world – one in which our children are surrounded by technology. It’s a part of their lives in a way that even the most tech-savvy adults aren’t fully able to comprehend. What we do know is that the workplace of tomorrow will require our children to harness the power behind the technology, to be able to understand key concepts and apply them. Logical reasoning, creativity, and problem-solving are skills that are becoming increasingly essential in the world of work.

 

How can we best prepare our children to enter this world? How to Raise a Tech Geniusis a practical book that assumes no prior knowledge or understanding of computing and enables parents to learn skills and concepts alongside their children. The quick, easy, and fun fifteen-minute activities within the book have been developed using first-hand teaching expertise and are fully mapped to the computing curriculum taught in schools.

From a deck of playing cards to the storybooks on your bookshelf or even the contents of your fridge, How to Raise a Tech Geniususes everyday objects that can be found around your home to illustrate core computer science concepts. Children and adults alike will enjoy playing games while developing their algorithmic thinking and logical reasoning skills. This book demystifies the computing curriculum for adults, showing parents a whole new side of computing, coding, and technology so that they can help their child become a computing genius!
