What to expect?

Whether you are joining block-based / textual programming or Maker Robotics camp, each camp will cover the following in-depth:

  • Coding fundamentals

  • Engineering principles

  • Understanding of solving a real-life problem with technology

  • Design session in breakout teams

  • Building multiple unique projects

  • Alpha and Beta Testing

Making it a SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL Experience!

Code-it Hacks has been running non-stop virtual camps since the school closure was announced in March. During this time we learnt many lessons. To ensure the most impactful learning experience we have structured our camps per our learnings. Here are some of our findings:

  • 8 students in a virtual class is the magic number to ensure everyone gets enough time during the camp

  • A ratio of 1:4 teacher to student is the most impactful

  • Kids ages 6 and under do feel a screen time learning fatigue

  • An hour is too little time to run the camp and more that two hours is too much screen fatigue

  • Group team-based activities in breakout sessions provide students means to connect and give them purpose in a contactless learning environment

  • Friday is our testing and presentation day. Students work towards this goal all week. They are taught to provide constructive feedback to team mates. Conduct alpha and and Beta testings and taught how to receive feedback to improve their code

Spotlight on Social Emotional Learning

A Girl Looking at a Physics Model

According to recent collaborative study by Microsoft and McKinsey, the kindergartners of today will require more focus on Social emotional learning then enhancing just the cognitive skills.

"Social-emotional skills provide students with the perspective and flexibility necessary to function at a high level even when faced with uncertainty, change, pressure, stress, and other work and life challenges."

 

Per this study, "this is critical, because change and uncertainty are going to be increasingly pervasive for the class of 2030. Trends indicate the class of 2030 will change jobs more frequently than any previous generation, as across nearly all industries, the impact of technological and other changes is shortening the shelf life of employees’ existing skill sets."

How is Code-it Hacks integrating the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) support?

We are proud to state that SEL has always been an integral part of our program. Now more so, we feel the need to offer a balance between creating technology savvy learners and learners that can engage socially and navigate the world confidently without breaking under the pressures of the world. Every Code-it Hacks program, virtual or in person, integrates:

  • collaboration (during design and build)

  • Inquiry based learning (Problem and project-based)

  • Research and Presentation

  • Personalized learning plan and feedback
