5 principles of learning to code
Learning to code involves learning an approach to problem solving where we break down complex problems into a series of smaller, achievable problems to solve and use trial and error to identify a suitable solution to each problem. Our problem solving approach requires resilience and a delicate balance of being methodical and creative.
Learn thinking skills via Scratch
Learning computer programming concepts can be a bit tricky. The team at Coding Kids have developed a series of Scratch projects to help our students explore computer programming concepts. Some concepts can be a bit tricky to understand, but if we can explore them in a fun, visual and playful way, it is possible to pick up. See our list below to find Scratch projects that may suit your learning needs.
