Game to Help Young Children Develop Analytical Skills
Learn to Code with El Chavo is a freeeducational game from Televisa for five- to eight-year-old children to learn about the logic behind computer coding through the characters of El Chavo del Ocho (often shortened to El Chavo), a Mexican television sitcom that gained enormous popularity in Latin America and Spain, as well as in the United States. The online game helps children develop problem-solving skills and analytical competencies. The first two levels focus on learning how sequences and spatial reasoning works. The game also offers a Parent section where parents can follow their child’s progress.
