What is creative computing?
Creative computing is about creativity and computational thinking, which emphasises the knowledge, practices, and fundamental literacies that young people need to create the types of dynamic and interactive computational media that they enjoy in their daily lives.
Engaging in the creation of computational artifacts prepares young people for more than careers as computer scientists or programmers. It supports young people’s development as computational thinkers – individuals who can draw on computational concepts, practices, and perspectives in all aspects of their lives, across disciplines and contexts.
Why choose Codekids and Scratch programming?
The Codekids’s creative computing course’s curriculum is designed by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is a collection of ideas, strategies, and activities for an introductory creative computing experience using Scratch. In this course, children will be learn to create stories; bring animations to life; code musical instruments; design exciting games; and control robots.
Inspired by constructionist approaches to learning, the course emphasizes the following principles:
What is Scratch?
Scratch is the world’s most popular programming language for primary school children. Scratch’s visual coding blocks makes it particularly useful to learn coding concepts and computational thinking. More experienced children can also benefit from Scratch as we will cover more advanced aspects of the language.
Age Requirement: 7+
No prior coding experience necessary.
If your child has attended similar courses before, then their learning will be extended further.
