Grade-specific and self-paced, Tynker’s interactive K-12 coding curriculum lets students learn by creatively applying coding concepts to core subjects. The curriculum includes over 50 programming courses with over 1,600 contact hours.
Tynker’s coding for schools is an online platform that easily and successfully teaches students how to code through the activities they already love: games and stories. Tynker’s goal is to provide every child with a solid foundation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) thinking abilities to prepare them for 21st century degrees and careers.
Schools are using Tynker’s grade-specific lesson plans to teach programming in formal Computer Science classes or to support project-based learning across all subject areas — science, math, ELA, social studies and more.
Absolutely! We understand how busy educators are, which is why we have a whole suite of educator tools. Tynker has a built-in assessment framework that tracks both student and class progress. You can use the concept map, grading and metrics dashboards to easily track how your students are learning.
Each of our 100-, 200- and 300-level courses for teaching coding in the classroom consists of 16-17 lessons. Lessons are designed to last one class period (45 min to 1 hr.). As students progress through a lesson, they’ll be working through different types of learning modules.
Tynker easily lends itself to supporting all areas of learning. Schools are using Tynker as a way for students to demonstrate their understanding of other subjects such as science and math. Tynker’s lessons support and enhance Common Core State Standards.
