Frequently Asked Questions

  • What devices do I need to participate?

    Each student needs to have a desktop computer, laptop computer, or Chromebook with an internet connection and an up-to-date browser. No downloads are required. If not enough devices are available, students can work in pairs on the same device.

  • How do I set up a classroom?
    If you’re a Tynker teacher, you may have already completed this step – nice work! For those who still need to get set up: take 2 minutes to create a Tynker account and add a classroom for your students. We provide all the scaffolded content, so your work is done! Once you’re signed in, visit "MY CLASSES" inside your dashboard to get started.
  • How do I set up student rosters?
    You can set up your student rosters with Clever, Google Accounts, or Tynker Accounts. If you use Clever, read this post to set up your classes. If you use Google Accounts, watch this quick setup video. To create Tynker Accounts for your classes, this quick video walks you through the process.
  • How do I add students to my classroom?
    Once you set up a classroom, you can add students and assign lessons through your teacher dashboard. You can import students to a single classroom, add them to multiple classrooms, manually create individual Tynker accounts, or have your students add themselves using a class code.
  • What do I get in my Tynker teacher dashboard?
    Your teacher dashboard is where you can access all your teacher guides, answer keys, student metrics, and certificates. You can see just how much coding your students are doing and even help them along if they get stuck! At the end of an Hour of Code, you can print out personalized achievement certificates for each student.
