Apple, Microsoft and Google teach coding skills to kids

By ConnectSafely

At its developers conference on Monday, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced Swift Playgrounds, a new iPad app to teach coding to kids.

Apple describes Swift Playgrounds as “a revolutionary new app for iPad that makes learning Swift interactive and fun.” Swift is a programming language created by Apple and used to build many of today’s iOS apps. But, as CNET points out, Microsoft and Google have their own initiatives to help kids learn to code.

Swift Playgrounds will be in the Apple App store this fall.
