UOI

As part of our new UOI, Where We are In Place and Time: Technology & Coding students will be using the app Tynker. This coding app uses Swift, a coding language developed by Apple. Students use block-based coding to solve puzzles, as they progress, the puzzles get harder. They  will use coding blocks that have Swift language written on the blocks, exposing them to the syntax and format used in Swift without requiring them to type out the code. Some of the important coding concepts they will learn are:

  • Algorithms
  • Debugging
  • Loops
  • Composition and Decomposition

Learning how to code helps students build important computational thinking and problem-solving skills.

They will begin to see how coding skills connect with everyday tasks and they will build essential foundations for thinking like a coder. Students will also be using the Seesaw app to reflect on their learning.

You can help your child see the importance and relevance of coding by engaging them in discussions about what they are learning and helping them make real-world connections.

Here is a link that can help them practice at home as well as in school.
