I just had my first group of 6th graders coding - Instant engagement! Love it (plus now I am a teacher hero). Paula Pletcher Teacher from St. Simon School, IN
Introduce your class to visual programming. In this course, students get introduced to basic programming as they create interactive stories, design animations, and make mini-games in Tynker's game-like interface. Each lesson is designed for a class period of 45-60 minutes. During this period, students learn by themselves as they progress through interactive tutorials, solve coding puzzles, follow along to build their own project, and take a quiz. All student work is automatically tracked and assessed, and with access to the premium offerings, you'll be able to monitor their individual progress and mastery charts.
Topics Covered: Sequencing, repetition, events, conditional logic, animation, storytelling, problem solving and debugging, pen drawing, drawing shapes and patterns.
