The beginning years of any individual learning to code is a very crucial moment where they can create a crucial foundation for a lifelong journey into coding. Students will learn to think and speak to computer by using the application that they learn. Why should students learn coding though? Well, in present day, coding is the basic literacy and it is so important that students are able to use and understand the technology around them. At DataWiz Academy, we offer three crucial topics for students of various ages which include Scratch, Snap! and Python. Scroll below for more information!
Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically.
Snap! is a visual, drag-and-drop programming language, designed by the University of California Berlekey. It is an extended reimplementation of Scratch that allows you to build your own blocks. Students will be introduced to fundamental concepts of programming using block-based programming language.
MIT App Inventor is an intuitive, visual programming environment that allows students to build fully functioning apps for Android smart phones and tablets. Their block-based programming tools allow for students to be able to learn the programming logic while also creating the apps of their imagination.
Python is a general-purpose, versatile and a very popular programming language that is taught in high school and universities widely. Students will be introduced to programming concepts using Python along with various game development and design. Python is used by big IT firms such as Google, Uber, Instagram and many more.
Java is a popular class-based, object-oriented programming language, used by 7.6 million developers. Java is a very beginner-friendly programming language that is also taught at high schools around the country. Java is used by many major companies such as Goldman Sachs, eBay, Google, and many others.
