Coding Club for half a year for 90 minutes in the afternoon, ideally between 2.30 p.m. and 4 p.m. For third and fourth grade children. The afternoon coding club is offered as a continuous course for up to 12 learners, with more intensive supervision and teamwork. The weekly course is aimed in particular at children who want to delve deeper into the Digitaltutor eV program: playfully program, build robots and experiment, design digitally and master fun challenges.
We encourage children to actively face challenges and solve tasks independently. In the Coding Club they learn to develop their own solution strategies for problems and experience themselves as capable and self-competent.
With this innovative educational offer, we focus on skills for the future and at the same time we instruct children to find a healthier use of digital media. For a future in which the minds of tomorrow dominate digitalization and not one in which digitalization dominates the children.
We help beginners by promoting motor skills in the use of digital tools. Little geniuses are challenged by abstraction and logic in programming (sequences, loops, events and conditions). Later, in the course of the Coding Club, when there is enough basic understanding of algorithms and informational thinking, we turn to a real programming language with the pupils, for example Python.
All participants are specially trained in dealing with digital devices and modern working methods, such as the use of video conferencing and e-collaboration. The Coding Club creates a space and identification to promote communication, social behavior and teamwork.
The students can use the learning platform of the Coding Club from anywhere and at any time to access their learning projects, even with devices from their own household.
