The joint course by CODDY and Codewards on "The Basics of Programming and Algorithmics” is aimed at the formation of digital skills, algorithmic thinking and the basics of programming for children from 5 to 7 years old. Children do not need to have any special knowledge to start. The platform is designed to be convenient and understandable for every child.
The learning process is organized in the course format which is based on the author’s methodology. The educational content complies with the requirements of the Federal State Educational Standard of the Russian Federation for organization of the educational process in elementary school as well as with requirements of the professional community with regards to IT specialists. The course has been methodically tested in more than 500 schools in Russia.
During the course the child will learn to:
You do not need to install special programs. To access the platform, you need a browser and a stable Internet connection.
Codwards is a fun world that a child finds himself in as a rescue engineer. He will complete missions, restore the operation of the systems of the underwater station, program robots and fight the evil Kodavr. Scenario and game mechanics make the course really interesting for children. This approach keeps their attention throughout the course, involves them in the learning process and learning new materials.
In addition to topics from programming (object, command, program, algorithm, loop, nested loop), students will receive an introduction to digital literacy topics:
The platform shows how much time the child spends on programming, relevant game status and what difficulties are faced.
Codewards educational platform was developed by IT professionals (By Redmadrobot which is a well-known company in the field of mobile application development) and leading meteorologists, game practitioners and psychologists.
Codewards is an official partner and developer of the simulator for the All-Russian Digital Lesson campaign, organized by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Digital Development. More than 5 million students from all schools across Russia have completed assignments in Codewards.
Programming is one of the key competencies of the new digital economy. In the future this skill will become as basic as the ability to write and read. By immersing children in programming today, we are creating a reliable foundation for their professional competencies in the future.
Please be sure your computer is suitable for the course. You can find our recommendations here.
During the training process we evaluate the practical side (how to do it?) and understanding the topics as well (why and what for?)
Students demonstrate knowledge by solving tasks in their own way, explaining the algorithms in own words, helping other students to correct mistakes and creating presentations on the final course project.
