Coming Soon – Program Description

www.codeGOAT.org

codeGOAT offers an easy and engaging way for students to learn coding/digital skills in a self-directed environment in the online classroom or from home. In addition, there is comprehensive training and support for teachers.

By moving through journeys, students and teachers develop their coding/digital skills through Blockly coding. Blockly coding is a visual coding language where the user builds code by stacking ‘blocks’ together. These ‘blocks’ are chunks of code that can be translated into professional textual code, which is JavaScript. Each journey culminates with a capstone project — a final project that focuses on developing a web app. A journey is approximately 21 hours of content and is differentiated into specific grade groupings and skill sets: Grades 1-3 students, Grades 4-6 students and Grades 7-12 (middle/high school).

CodeGoat will be launching soon. Be sure to check back here for release info and watch your email. If you are on file as a previous MindFuel follower or user we will send an email announcing its release.
