Coding is a part of the subject of computer science. I learned coding as to know more about this subject and explore this subject apart from the knowledge that is provided in the school. I also learned this skill so that I can know more career options for the future. I learned this in two formats first I learned it online to gain a background knowledge of this topic and then I learned it in a tuition to get all the concepts required clear.
Strands : Activity
Learning Outcomes covered: LO1, LO2, LO4
LO1 : Identify own strengths and develop areas for growth
One strength that I identified while I was doing this activity was that I had a really good grasping power because I was able to learn all the concepts very quickly because I had background knowledge and also I was willing to know about this topic in depth. I feel good when now I am aware of this skill of mine because I use it even in other areas to learn more things and broaden my horizons as much as possible. It is important for us to know our skills because it can help us know the things in life we are good at so that we can work on improving that and make our personalities even better and get our skills useful and helpful for our future.
LO2 : Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process
The most challenging part was to learn coding by myself online without any assistance in the start because I am new to this concept and always have had the habit of having someone to supervise and help me clear my doubts on the spot whilst hear I could get help only once in a day and that too would happen very rarely. I have done nothing like this in the past and it was a completely new experience for me this time. It was difficult to manage in the start but slowly I got used to learning all by myself and then searching on google all my queries and learn with whatever information was provided. After undertaking this challenge I feel better as I got another area and a different way of learning that I can explore even more in the future. I think it is important to undertake different challenges because it helps us as human being learn many more new things and know about different things that are present apart from the general things that everyone does. Coding itself is a skill and it can help me in the future as the next generation is all about technology and my aim in life is to become a businesswoman where I could use these skills in my business to make it tech-friendly and connect it to the people of that time. I am really satisfied with learning this skill because it is something unique and also will help me in the future. I think it is important to learn new skills as they will make the path for us to reach our passions.
LO4 : Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences
As it was long-term activity which I did in my vacations there were times when I had to commit and not procrastinate in completing my tasks. Also, I had to make sure that whatever work I would finish I would do it with full dedication and will to complete it. Generally for me it is easy to commit to things in school days but in vacations I become a little lazy and that makes it difficult for me sometimes to commit to my work and get it done
