Little Unplugged Coder Course Description

Little Unplugged Coder

In this course, students will be introduced to a range of technological concepts to spark their techy brains! The lessons all link to age-appropriate coding projects, involving a focus on core coding skills such as sequencing, algorithms, conditionals, and variables. These will be introduced, practiced, and applied through a range of online and unplugged activities.

To support learners in their understanding of these technological concepts, lessons will involve a wide range of hands-on, physical activities. We aim to support little learners to gain subject knowledge, learn new technical vocabulary, write code, run code and, most importantly, identify errors and debug code.

The Little Coder lessons all include opportunities for students to both freely explore and follow step by step instructions to guide them to success. A range of interactive coding platforms are integrated into the program to provide the highest quality experience.

It is expected that parents will support their child in these sessions, particularly with some of the trickier techniques. This helps to make our lessons great fun for both younger students who will require a bit more adult help, to older students who can work more independently and ensures every child leaves the lesson with a better understanding of what coding is and how it works!
