We are happy, because the first round in englisch language starts today. The MOOC “Learning to Code: Programming with Pocket Code” is explicitly aimed at schoolchildren. But be aware that we do not want to train the whole world as computer scientists. On the contrary, we simply want people to understand how the world of tomorrow works, so that they can help shape the world of tomorrow. So register and join it for free.
There are many prejudices and fears about programming. With the help of Pocket Code, particularly children will gain initial experience with programming. A simple and visual user interface enables a playful implementation of your own ideas.
The course is designed for children and young people (age group 10-14 years) as well as teachers of all subjects. The main content includes creating your own games, interactive animations and apps with Pocket Code. At first, the structure and functionality of the app get presented. The participants learn how to use basic programming concepts such as conditionals, variables, events or parallelism. It is up to the children whether they take the course on their own or together with their parents.
