Lessons that develop programming skills - one step at a time!
Each unit builds towards a fun programming challenge where new concepts are applied to solve problems. Designed to encourage students to work in groups, explore ideas and experiment with code.
A key concept is debugging; fixing problems that exist within code. Every unit includes a debugging lesson, with links to ‘buggy code’ for children to fix. These lessons are great for building resilience and problem solving.
How to use the videos
The video lessons are succint; they focus on very specific programming skills with a clear learning objective. This means that even if you're not going to use the whole sequence of lessons, you can dip in and out, using only the lessons you need.
View the video lessons prior to teaching a lesson to improve your own understanding of new programming concepts, including loops, variables and IF statements. Our videos are far more flexible than training in staff meetings or staff development days, since it allows teachers to develop their understanding when they need it, which far improves knowledge retention.
Use the video lessons and resources to support your teaching. Show videos on a whiteboard then discuss the concepts introduced. Use the video to kickstart your own teaching of a concept, before setting your students going on a task.
Students love coding and you'll often find that they're eager to do more at home. With your 12 months access to these videos as part of your e-Learning Update subscription, you can give your students access to all the video lessons at home, enabling them to revisit concepts they found hard or extend their understanding further.
