We’re back and kicking off the week with World Emoji Day. And you know what that means, right?
It’s time to lose our minds crazy using emoji as we celebrate our new found communication path of the future today.
If you didn’t know, everybody young, old, and in between use emoji to freely express the good, bad, and ugly parts of themselves!
And if you don’t believe that, then maybe the following convinces you otherwise:
That’s right! We now have an annual day, anthem, game show, and soon a movie to emoji express life events.
And if those aren’t enough, then allow me blow your mind as I introduce Livio Bolzon, the founder of for-profit Codemoji.com, an amazing online tool designed to teach kids the fundamentals of coding using emoji.
Yes, we’re now coding with emoji. That’s exciting and good stuff! But how? Well, I’ll let Livio share all the details as he did in our most recent interview.
Tell me a bit about yourself, who you are, and what it is you do for a living:
My name is Livio Bolzon. I’m a 21-year old a computer software engineer and student attending Northwestern University based in the Windy City of Chicago, IL.
An entrepreneur, engineer and educator at heart, I’m passionately motivated to create innovative solutions that enhance the quality of life, especially when it comes to helping children learn and achieve their dreams.
As an avid emoji user, as is my generation and those to come, it’s been very rewarding to equip, empower, and enable a growing number of students in learning and applying STEM and the Common Core concepts to everyday living.
What makes Codemoji different than traditional coding bootcamps?
Although there are good coding bootcamps that exist throughout the world, Codemoji is different than traditional coding bootcamps because we focus on kids, grades 1st through 7th, learning to master coding.
In theory, we cover the same coding fundamentals and principles as others, yet we strategically make coding inviting and engaging through the use of emoji.
Unlike other coding bootcamps, we aim to simplify each aspect of coding by associating HTML and CSS with meaningful emoji, reinforcing common coding principles through visual comprehension.
What are kids attending Codemoji able to achieve?
Because Codemoji is a self-study platform, our hope for each child is to attain transferrable problem-solving skills to apply in various aspects of their life.
In fact, parents and teachers are encouraged to allow students an opportunity to learn and problem solve at their own pace.
How do you see Codemoji impacting how kids become efficient at coding?
Not only do we experience individual kids learning to code, but we see an opportunity for Codemoji being used as an effective classroom on ramp for schools throughout the world.
To date, we’ve empowered the lives of nearly 75,000 students with hopes of greatly increasing this achievement as time progresses.
We are actively seeking partnership with schools and education centers in need of STEM and the Common Core curriculum for grades 1st through 7th.
See the crux of your existence is teaching kids to code using emoji, does Codemoji own and use emoji domains?
And of course, we redirect C🐼odemoji.ws since we own the matching .com, Codemoji.com.
