Coding Crash Course for Teachers


We have learned that once the decision has been made to teach computer programming to children, the instructors can face an increasing amount of stress and frustration. The reason is simple. Most instructors do not have any knowledge of computer programming concepts and their application. We have developed our Coding Crash Course for Teachers workshop to teach basic computer programming skills by utilizing the most popular program for teaching kids coding – Scratch©.

Our accelerated workshop is designed for the individual with no prior knowledge or experience with computer programming. Our instructors will teach basic principles in computer programming in “plain English” with hands-on activities and exercises to reinforce concepts.
