In this course, we’ll learn to code, starting from the basic blocks. No kidding! Scratch, the programming language we use (developed by MIT), is so fun that it makes programming seem like a game.
We’ll learn by doing. The course is designed so that you create the games and applications with your own two hands. But what makes this course truly unique is the teaching method I’ve used live for almost 4 years. We learn a variety of computer science topics, but we hide the complexity behind characters, animations, analogies and fun!
That’s because, in these carefully designed lessons, we train our intuition to make sense of what we want to achieve and how to get there. This will help you quickly master the basics. After this course, you’ll learn text-based programming languages at a blazing speed and quickly make sense of any piece of code.
The content is designed to be fun! We learn to create animations and cool effects and we create clones of some of the most popular games: Flappy Bird, Duck Hunt or Pac-Man. The games are handpicked to optimize learning computer science topics while having fun along the way. I will also update the course on a regular basis with new content – and challenges!
This course is designed for
- parents or teachers who want to give their children the best skills and most fun
- kids and beginners who want to learn to code games
- anyone new to programming who doesn’t know where to start
I can’t wait to have you in the course!
The course is regularly updated with new material, tips and tricks that you can use in your games and projects!
- Children (from 7-8 years)
- Absolute beginners in programming and computer science
- learning to express their creativity using coding and technology
- learning to solve a variety of problems encountered in their projects
- demonstrating a growth mindset (rather than a fixed mindset)
- speaking mathematically to the computer/device through their coding
- making exciting, personal ideas come to life through coding (this serves as the prime motivator for students to learn, play and push their coding skills further every day)
- creating meaningful software applications rather than isolated chunks of code
- actively learning from, and sharing with, others (face to face & online)
- learning to visualize a process that accomplishes a task in their project
- learning, practicing and refining the design process
- reflecting on their thinking and learning in order to transfer to new challenges
- excited about learning and exploring coding and technologies on their ‘own time’
