Coding (classes taught in conjunction with LCCL Coding Academy)
Early Creators Ages 5-7 Platform used: Codespark (based on research-backed curriculum from MIT and Princeton)
Children will learn through interactive puzzles, game design and creative projects the following concepts:
- Computing technology in their surrounding world and the way they work
- Computational thinking and problem solving via physical activities, code, and other pedagogical tools
- Coding & robots: Children learn to code their own animations, and communicate instructions in a logical manner to make characters behave a certain way. In doing so, they structure their thoughts while creating fun stories and games.
The program encourages them to become confident, creative, curious and collaborative learners who are aware of the ubiquity of technology and the creative power of code.
