Coding Club from home – Connect with MS Teams

Access the Junior Coding Club in Microsoft Teams

While Office 365 Education is the building of the Junior Coding Club, the rooms inside are in Microsoft Teams, the perfect application for this purpose.

The Coding Club classrooms and the school hall are inside Microsoft Teams. This is where students in classrooms and projects interact socially, have fun and work together.

Installation

Download Microsoft Teams and install the software on the devices of your child. If you use a tablet, like an iPad, you need to install MS Teams through the AppStore or the PlayStore.

 

Download – Link: https://teams.microsoft.com/uswe-01/downloads

or

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/download-app

On iPad download Microsoft Teams from the App Store.

On Samsung tablets or any other go to the Play Store.

Do a test login into MS Teams with the login credentials above (school account). If you face a problem, write an email to us: support@codingclub.cc.

Join the live-online class

Login into MS Teams 15 minutes before the start of the class. From there you will be invited and guided to the videoconference room.  Just wait for an invitation message to pop up.

Start Microsoft Teams and login with the children Coding Club account. Now you will see two team rooms if you are new and three team rooms if you are a regular CC member. Choose “CC Spring Holiday Camp” and enter the top channel named “General” or “Allgemein”. Inside the channel you can connect to the video conference. If you can find it, look for a blu icon or a blue area bar with a “Join” button. Links and announcements are also in the channel.

The tutor will start the video conference usually 15 – 30 minutes before the start. That way you can login earlier, test your computer and get used to the application. The more fluent your child is with MS Teams or any other meeting app the better will be your experience.

Three important MS Teams functions your child should practise:

  1. The screen “Share” function. So your child will be able to share her screen to present something. It is also important for us teachers so we can help fixing a problem on your child’s computer.
  2. The mute button. We need to learn discipline especially in online meetings and avoid distraction from noise through all those microphones connected. The default setting for a students should be being on mute. In MS Teams, responsibility about being muted or not lies sorely by the participants (the students). They need to learn this responsibility. If a student wants to say something in a large group they should post a message (teacher will read) and wait for their call. In small groups it is ok if the students unmute themselves (they are allowed to unmute) and raise their voice cautiously.
  3. Finding the way back from the video screen back to the message postings. The message posts or board in the general channel are filled with links where links guide the students to learning resources on other websites.

b) Download and install Microsoft Teams

Edit student account and password

HowTo edit the student account and password in Microsoft 365

About the student account

Your child’s Junior Coding Club username is basically an email address composed by the first name of your child separated with a dot “.” and the first letter of the last name followed by “@codingclub.cc”.

Example: simon.b@codingclub.cc

It is a fully functional email address which is also the single sign-on (SSO) into the Microsoft Office 365 student account and other education applications.

The (secure) password

Every student starts with a generic password. The students are obliged to change their password as soon as possible with their own creation.

1. Login to the Junior Coding Club

For the login page, click here: https://login.microsoft.com/

Type in the username / email address and you will recognise the Digitaltutor Coding Club welcome screen.

Now fill in the password.

Office 365 Education dashboard

2. Change the password

This is one of the first topics children should learn: The use of passwords and why they are important. We decided to require a strong policy about passwords even if this is a steep learning challenge for the young students. With the help of the Tutor or with the parents, children will be able to construct a secure password on a high standard soon. 

Psst ... the password must contain at least 8 characters and 3 combinations of the following: capital and lowercase letters, numbers, or special characters (§$%&...) .

Hacky Hack

Train yourself to remember at least one password that you never, repeat: NEVER ever tell someone except your parents.

Recommended password generators:

3. Change profile information

Profil information are only visible to other members of the Junior Coding Club. Add information about yourself cautiously and only if it is relevant for your class mates. 

In the My Office Profile page you can add (and edit):

What you need for a successful homeschooling environment

Requirements for attending Junior Coding Club from home

Software / Apps

Use your favorite browser like Firefox, Chrome or Safari.

You can download the school version of Minecraft from here: Download

The game requires a Microsoft student account to log in. The student account will be provided by the Coding Club administration.

I recommend Notepad++, TextMate or Atom, but there many other good options as well.

If you are facing technical problems shortly before or during the activity, there is actually not much we can help in this moment. Kindly get in touch with us after the class. I’m glad to help and I know it is a difficult situation. Don’t be turned away if it just does not work 100% from the start. It is normal. It is a learning curve and your child will adapt fast. Your kid will enjoy having a project in collaboration with their peers which they can do from home, even being isolated.

Also – is it a problem if my daughter use separate device for teams and Minecraft? (i.e. you want kids to share screen)
 
Absolutely not, this setup would be ideal! Teams is multi-device friendly. Have your daughter logged into teams and let her join into the video conference from both the iPad and your Mac, at the same time, with the same account. Now disable one of the microphones and one of the audio outputs on the two devices. So that only one microphone and one speaker is enabled. Otherwise you will get a sound loop. With that setting your daughter can interact with the classroom in Teams on one screen and on the other screen Minecraft is in front while Teams runs in the background. If she wants to share her Minecraft screen, she can do it by changing the task to Teams and enable screen sharing, then heading back to the Minecraft task. E voilá, everyone will see her presenting and she can still see the participants.

If you need help boarding the Coding Club, for example with your child’s computer devices network and internet connection you can schedule a meeting one-to-one with a Coding Club teacher. Book a phone call if you need assistance by pressing he button below:

Onboarding Coding Club Camp

1.)
Children registered will have a Microsoft Education 365 student account. The account name will look like this:

simon.b@codingclub.cc <= example

It is the first name of your child you just registered with your email, followed by a dot “.” and the first letter of your last name (your last name stated in your email). The last part is for all students the same: “@codingclub.cc”.

The temporary password will be sent to you by e-mail.

2.)
Download Microsoft Teams and install the software on the devices of your child. If you use a tablet, you need to install MS Teams through the AppStore or the PlayStore.

3.) Download Minecraft Education Edition as well. Used with the Coding Club account it is free and highly recommended as a learning game. If you use an iPad, you need to install it through the AppStore. Unfortunately there is no Android tablet version available at this time.

4.) Start Microsoft Teams and login with the children Coding Club account. Now you will see two team rooms if you are new and three team rooms if you are a regular CC member. Choose “CC Spring Holiday Camp” and enter the top channel named “General” or “Allgemein”. Inside the channel you can connect to the video conference. If you can find it, look for a blu icon or a blue area bar with a “Join” button. Links and announcements are also in the channel.

I will start the video conference already at noon time so you can login earlier, test your computer and get used to the application. The more fluent your child is with MS Teams or any other meeting app the better will be your experience. It could be possible that your child will meet other students already before the start of the event inside MS Teams. Take advantage of this and try out the meeting app functions. Ideally the 3 main important functions to start with are trained a bit before we begin:

1. The screen “Share” function. So your child will be able to share her screen to present something. It is also important for us teachers so we can help fixing a problem on your child’s computer.

2. The mute button. We need to learn discipline especially in online meetings and avoid distraction from noise through all those microphones connected.

They need to learn this responsibility. If a student wants to say something in a large group they should post a message (teacher will read) and wait for their call.

3. Finding the way back from the video screen back to the message postings. The message posts or board in the general channel are filled with links where links guide the students to learning resources on other websites.

If you are facing technical problems there is actually not much we can help shortly before or during the event. Kindly get in touch with us afterwards so it is quite enough to fix your issue. I’m glad to help and I know it is a difficult situation. Don’t be turned away if it just does not work 100% from the start. It is normal. It is a learning curve and your child will adapt fast. Your kid will enjoy having a project in collaboration with their peers which they can do from home, even being isolated.

If you like the Coding Club you might check other regular CC activities as well during the holiday or beyond when schools should start again. Visit https://codingclub.info for bookings (in english) or general information about digital empowerment (in german) at https://digitaltutor.de. We teach online throughout the day and in small groups of max 4 – 5 students to provide intensive tutoring.

I’m looking forward to meet you in the Coding Club teams channel!
