FAQ: Discover Coding Workshop For Teachers

We have seen an explosion in the number of types of software and hardware available to teach coding to children. We have tried a bunch. Some of it is good and some of it is disappointing to use. We have included our favorites to save teachers time and frustration along with a fantastic level of support.

Our experienced instructors will lead participants through a step by step and hands-on introduction to using some of the most popular software and hardware available to teach coding.
The workshop is four hours long.
We keep the maximum class size to 20 people so you will get the help and attention you need.
The minimum class size is 5 people.
The program fee is $199.99 per person.
A computer lab that will have a computer available for every person participating. Windows compatible computers are preferred but not required. Mac OS is acceptable, however, mobile devices like iPads, Chromebooks, and Android tablets are not compatible with some of the software. Kids That Code reserves the right to alter, change, or substitute content in order to successfully deliver instruction or activities. The computers should be able to access the Internet and have working speakers. A projector or large monitor should also be available for the lead instructor.
The classes can be scheduled during the week or weekend at your site or ours. Classes held at Cal State San Bernardino will usually take place on the weekend and subject to computer lab availability.

FAQ: Coding Crash Course for Teachers

Hey, you don’t really need a computer science degree to direct kids to a website and have them follow tutorials. However, your students will have many questions that you may struggle to answer. Consequently, it would help a LOT if you knew some basic computer programming concepts and principles among other things. We teach you what you need to know to have a basic understanding of what is happening when coding in Scratch.
Actually, when we first started out we used free resources ourselves. However, after years of teaching computer programming to kids, we learned a whole lot more. We will show you what worked and what did not to save you time, money, and frustration.
We are the same way too! Most of the time will be spent hands-on in either your computer lab or ours. We prefer less lecturing and more showing you what you need to know.
The 2 day workshop includes 8 hours of total instruction (4 hours each day). Of course, the start and end times will be customized to fit your schedule. The workshop can also be customized to spread over a specific length of time if necessary.
The minimum class size is 5 people.
The program fee is $499.99 per person.
