Welcome to the first step of your journey become a Digital Leader.
Here at the Community Coding Club, we'll give you the necessary tools for developing a 'Computational Thinking’ mindset – the ability to tackle large problems by breaking them down into smaller, more manageable ones.
We believe the skills required for coding /programming, are not only immensely valuable career-wise, but also to your life. We’ll tell you how, a little later.
To engage effectively with a computer, you need the following:
- a logical mindset
- problem-solving mindset
- a mindset that sees errors as an opportunity to learn and improve
Considering the lightening pace of change in computing, the ability to code is not only an essential skill for young people, but one more and more adults are cultivating, as they begin to grasp the dire consequences of being left behind.
It's never too late to learn. You too can master technology.
Learning Outcomes of Our Introduction Course Include;
- Cultivate ‘Computational Thinking’
- Understand basic programming language
- Ability to write a computer programme
- Ability to create a computer game
- Develop a creative mindset
In a world that’s increasingly more dominated by an ever-present advance in technology, the digital world is one that must be as natural to young people as science, language, and mathematics.
To achieve this, we aim to provide every young student of every school in the United Kingdom, the opportunity to learn and develop programming skills; thereby not only empowering them to prosper in an ever-changing world, but also investing in Britain’s future.
At the Coding Club, students will develop the essential power of creative thinking, and fully imbibe the fundamentals that drive technology.
In collaboration with teachers and stake-holders of the education sector across the country, we’ve developed a practical and fun programme that’s designed to foster a generation of tech innovators; thereby harnessing a nation of ‘builders’ and ‘entrepreneurs’.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
Student: Hello, my name is Neel and I go to Field End Junior school.
Alex: Okay. What was your favorite thing about the coding club so far?
Neel: Learning new different commands and typing out really long codes.
Alex: would you go and learn any other coding languages?
Neel: Yes! java script, java, how to use a language in different way.
Alex: Okay. Would you sign up to the Intermediate Course next term?
Alex: What sort of things would you like to learn there?
Neel: I hope to learn how to make new games, program robots
Alex: When you leave school what industry do you want to into?
Neel: I am not that sure.
Alex: What do you want to do when you get older?
Neel: programmer / engineer
Innovative thought leader in the world of technology and education. Self taught, self motivated, self driven entrepreneur with a real drive to provide opportunity to those from less privileged backgrounds. 25 years working with technology and 12 years in education.
Working in hospitality over 20yrs and the marketing sector for 10 yrs and witnessing the evolution of the digital world made me realise, the importance of the computing skills. As a father of two I recognised the advantages of the digital education in the early ages. Which is positively affects our children development in so many areas like problem solving, grammar, collaboration with others and building confidence.
