New to Coding? No problem! This class will be a great place to start. We will use simple introductions to block-style directional coding that are perfect for Kindergarten through third graders as they learn the basics of programming. PREREQUISITES: None. Please note, the student does not need to be able to read to participate in this class. Class 1: Sequence Sector Levels 1 & 2 (1,2,3 Roll/Alien Algorithms) Sequence, also known as an order of events, is a set of instructions that are read...
In this unit, learners will be able to discuss the vocabulary: programmer, programming language, and sequence. Your child will also be able to answer these questions: What is a programmer? What is an example of a program? How do computers or computer programs work? What happens if we give the computer directions in the wrong order? Who is smarter, computers, or people?
Great teachers form strong relationships with their students by engaging them in the subjects they are passionate about. I have always been a logical thinker who enjoys science, math, technology, and engineering both for work and play. I worked as an engineer for companies like Frito-Lay, Anheuser-Busch, Amgen as a consultant for many years improving their systems with automation and equipment. Once I became a parent, I began teaching extra-curricular classes as a way to have more time at home, but stay involved in subjects that bring me joy. Realizing that by being warm, professional, and enthusiastic, I am able to engage students. My creative lessons and strong classroom presence help build student confidence while increasing interest in subjects that may otherwise seem intimidating.
Learners can continue to practice outside of the class. Homework is optional, however, each level must be completed to progress to the next level in Smeeborg.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses Kodable, which can be installed on an iPad or used on a computer browser. It may be easier for students to have a second device to code on while we work in class together. A second device is not required.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Younger students may need parental support in order to complete tasks. Your child does NOT need to know how to read in order to participate.
