Learning “how to code” can be taken as the buzz phrase for computational – the core concept behind developing code. When a child learns computational thinking, it means he/she has learned to take a problem, understand it and develop solutions for it. Coding is a fun way to teach children structural thinking, develop their math and writing skills and explore their creativity.
At Minds Ahead, we offer Discovery Education’s Coding curriculum for Block Coding, Python and HTML. With Discovery Education Coding, pupils will gain a thorough understanding of coding concepts like algorithms, sequences and variables – as well as developing computational thinking skills through decomposition, logical reasoning and problem-solving.
Bringing Coding to Life
We introduce pupils to coding using visual blocks, or block coding, enabling them to master key coding concepts without having to worry about the precise syntax. Once their confidence grows, they extend their skills with Discovery’s HTML and Python tutorials.
Discovery Block Coding is perfect for younger children enabling them to program their own stories, games and animations with block-based coding. Block Coding teaches creative thinking and systematic reasoning and is an amazing way for children to start developing important skills such as computational thinking and algorithmic logic. Pupils drag and drop events, actions and objects to make things happen in a program, progressing to build their own games and apps.
Minds Ahead also offers MIT App Inventor, enabling children to from tech users to tech creators. They learn to design and build their own fully functional app.
