Class Experience

In our Little Coders course, students learn the basics of programming logic through hands-on activities and MIT’s introductory programming language called ScratchJr. Each thematic lesson will take your child on an adventure in which their imagination comes to life through interactive stories and games. Students will snap together graphical blocks to design, edit, and modify characters. During this process students will solve problems and develop foundational math and literacy skills.

All classes must be attended with a parent, who will both support the learning process and learn to code ScratchJr. as well.

Robofun recommends using two separate devices, one for the coding app and one for Zoom.

ScratchJr. was developed by Dr. Mitchel Resnick an associate at MIT. Dr. Resnick is one of Robofun’s Advisory Board members and trusted advisors.

Regardless of which class they take, or how many times they have taken it, our students do not repeat previous projects - they are always challenged and when they are ready they work on a new and interesting assignment.

Notes



Please follow the welcome email instructions for setting up Scratch Jr and come to each class with your tablet set to Scratch Jr. ready to go.


How To Participate

You will receive an email 30 minutes before class starts with a link to the class and access instructions.

Loved:

My daughter really enjoyed it and could collaborate with the other kids in the class.

Improvements:

not sure it was worth the price though! She said she knew much of what they did already and seemed more like an online facilitated play date. Also, Was a bit of a rough start, as instructor was having to help each individual kid get set up on different set ups and no other parents seemed available. Might have helped to give instructions ahead of time for how to get into the right Minecraft world, etc.
