Sandra Meyer Coding is being taught to young kids in school nowadays. And programming isn't all about math as many people seem to believe. If the question was about if SoloLearn is okay for a 10 year old to use, then the answer is definitely yes. It's not a question about if a 10 year old is ready for programming, because believe me, 10 years is plenty. I started programming when I was 9.
There's no explicit content on SoloLearn, so if a 10 year old is interested in coding then yes, it should be alright.
Sorry, but I don't think so. With 10 years you normally have not yet learned the required mathematics. And the contents are not created for children of this age.
Sololearn is good for everyone willing to learn and interested in coding. The best way to start learning is to start early. You need to nail the basics asap and practice. When you are old enough to apply for a job you will have a good set of skills. Keep your identity private and happy coding!
The IARC requires Sololearn users to be older than 12 or having parential guidance despite of having no explicit content. Adding to Sandra Meyer , Usually a 10 year old person does not have sufficient education or thinking to thoroughly learn programming. But if you cover some basic mathematics , you can at least take a little step in the sea if you want to. ;)
inxanedev, As you say the question was about SoloLearn specifically, in which case the answer is no. Please read the terms of service. Sololearn is registered in San Francisco, CA and is subject to Californian law. Therefore, in order to avoid legal issues with the COPPA children below the age of 13 are not permitted to use this site. The child in question is 10 years old.
Martin Taylor If you would have read properly, it also states that COPPA only allows collecting data from kids under 13, if there is parental consent. No kid under 13 should even have unsupervised access to the internet in the first place.
Why not , learn let him/her learn.
CatPV I don't think there's really a big issue with a child using the sololearn app. I think it's a great thing for children in that age bracket to get their hands dirty with codes especially with an app like sololearn and with some sort of supervision though so we don't have them being taken advantage of in the dm etc
yes age doesn't matter depends if you are willing to learn
Any legal issues aside, SoloLearn is a great place to learn for those that want to of any age. Every lesson is in bite sized chunks, so you can duck in and out and not get bored, or for when you are bored and have a couple minutes spare waiting for something. There is a great and supportive community, and almost everyone is well behaved Depending on the course, there may be some things over their head, but starting with HTML and CSS would be a fine intro, and the earlier they get exposed to it the better at it they will eventually be. And, any difficulty they with the math, when they get to the real programming languages, may even inspire them to get better at math...win win.
Some courses might be good for 10 years old users, like HTML and CSS. Just upgrade a bit more your math knowledge and you should be OK. My parents are 40+ years old and they might be even worst than a 10 years old kid in terms of programming knowledge.
The contents contain mathematics which are part of later school education. That's what I said.
Well, in my opinion Sololearn is suitable for all ages. It doesn't include any explicit content. But learning programming from only an app is will not fulfill you. You need to take classes or read a book about programming (Like I do). I gave up on this app a while ago and I learnt python for other sources. I am also young so we can talk if you'd like.
Yes if he is having interest & can give time then he can learn.
Yes it is, if i had the opportunity to learn when i was ten i would have been an expert by now which would have been great, so if you are ten and you want to learn coding please do.
No. Young people are allowed, but it's 13+. Wanna code? Good for you, go for it, don't let this discourage you! Just maybe a social coding app isn't suitable for your age range. Freecodecamp has some awesome videos on getting started.
