What’s included in the new Kodable Programming Curriculum?
Thousands of educators have been teaching their students basic programming concepts with Kodable for over a year. The focus of the new Kodable Programming Curriculum is to make teaching these coding concepts even easier.
Organized by concept, the new Kodable Programming Curriculum is a step-by-step guide to teaching your students the basics of programming.
Teaching Programming by Concept
The Kodable Programming Curriculum covers the most important programming concepts for beginners:
Variables (Coming Soon!)
Teaching programming concepts can often be intimidating, and sometimes it is difficult to know where to start.
In the new Kodable Programming Curriculum we divide each programming concept into digestible and time efficient units. These units are also chock-full of teaching resources to help you along the way:
Concept Learning Guides
Lesson Answer Keys
Brand New Programming Lessons
To supplement the new Kodable Programming Curriculum we have also added brand new Kodable lessons for the following programming concepts:
More coming soon!
Over the course of the next few months, we will be adding resources and making improvements to the curriculum. So keep an eye out for future updates!
The Hour of Code is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. And if you are just learning about the Hour of Code now, it is still not too late to join!
How can I encourage my colleagues to start teaching/facilitating programming? How can I get my whole school coding? We came up with a number of suggestions/potential solutions in this week’s #KidsCanCode Chat.
