Using video conferencing software, our virtual classroom provides students with an innovative approach to coding that balances learning computational skills with nurturing students’ curiosity and sense of discovery.

With a maximum teacher:student ratio of 1:6, each of our online courses is the perfect opportunity to engage kids and grow their coding confidence! Once set-up within our virtual learning environment, every member of the class can share their screen and other materials with the teacher, creating a collaborative atmosphere and ensuring every student can receive immediate feedback on their work.

JavaScript is the most commonly used programming language in the world. It’s the hidden language that makes the web more interesting, your favourite sites engaging, and online games playable and smooth. Behind the scenes it is Javascript which makes the digital world so fun! Aimed at those with little to no coding knowledge, this course covers the fundamental elements of programming using JavaScript. It's ideal for young intermediate coders with some experience of block-based coding who want to move onto text-based languages. 

Throughout this course we use a platform called ‘Bitsbox’. This is a great introductory format for Javascript as it allows kids to learn about the intricacies of text-based languages easily. Students will learn coding concepts such as variables, loops, and parameters. Having gained a foundational grasp of a concept we then challenge students to apply this new found knowledge to their own unique projects. These projects are massively varied, offering the opportunity for each child to tailor their learning to their own passions and interests.  

We’ll learn about the difference between Scratch and Bitsbox, building apps with cool characters, how to program an interactive quiz, and put it all together by creating an Angry Birds game at the end of the week! In this way online learners are able to cement their knowledge of Javascript concepts and will be able to walk away with their very own original work at the same time!
