The Raspberry Pi Foundation recently announced the launch of a website called Code Club World. This web page It is suitable for children, so that they can learn to program with ages from 9 to 13 years and at home. There you will find tons of resources and help to learn how to take your first steps with the code.
This announcement was made on the blog, by the director of learning experience of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Laura Kirsop, who said that this project was the result of an effort to create tools to help parents with educating their children about new technologies and from home, during the Covid-19 pandemic.
"When we talk to Fathers and sons On learning at home during the pandemic, it became clear to us that they were looking for educational tools that children could independently enjoy and master, and that were as fun and social as computer games and other apps that children love. ”Laura said in the official announcement.
"A free tool to learn to code at home is particularly important for young people who cannot attend coding clubs in person.”He added. "We believe all children should have access to an education encoding and high-quality digital creation. And with this in mind, we set out to create Code Club World, an online environment as rich and engaging as a face-to-face after-school learning experience, where all young people can learn to code. «.
In Code Club World, kids can start by creating their personal robot avatar, then move on to making music, designing a t-shirt, and even teaching their robot avatar how to dance. They can learn to code on islands with structured activities and discover text and block-based coding in Scratch and Python, all while earning badges to mark their progress and share their coding creations with family, friends, and the online community at Code. Club World. A kind of gamification of learning of programming for the little ones.
"That means when kids are in the Code Club World environment, they are learning to code and use digital creation to independently create their ideas and tackle the challenges that matter to them.Kirsop said. "By providing a structured path through coding activities, a badge rewards system to engage and motivate students, and a wide range of projects covering different topics, Code Club World supports students at every stage, while making activities meaningful, fun and flexible.«
Another advantage is that young users will not necessarily need access to a desktop or laptop to use Code Club World, as the foundation has ensured that the project provides a good user experience in mobile devices, as well as its own SBC, even though it is still in beta ...
