WHSC- Innovate Coding Academy (Mobile and Website Applications Development for Grades 7 to 12 (THURSDAYS)

Teen Coding Academy is a lunch time school coding academy for teens in Melbourne, Australia who are interested in advancing their knowledge and skills in computer science. The Coding Academy is part of the Innovate Program which has the primary focus on getting students to code, learn, upskill and challenge themselves.

Coding is an important skill to prepare students for the jobs which already exist and the jobs to be. Many more jobs are coming up which require good knowledge of coding and a computer science background. Through coding, students will learn about logic, computational thinking,  improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills. What’s more, they get to build on their soft skills such as resilience, communication and learning to work with others successfully while working on their challenges. They will develop an understanding of how the web works and create working websites. 

By learning how to code, students will enhance their digital literacy skills, improve their ability to focus on the tasks at hand and learn how to use the computer productively to their advantage. They will have a better understanding of how programs work and the enjoyment that comes with thinking through things and creating something that works.

NEW MODULE FOR 2019 – MOBILE DEVELOPMENT

Students will have hands-on experience in developing interesting Android application using the MIT App Inventor application. The course is suitable for students with any level of computing experience. Students will use a a block-based programming tool that allows novices, to start programming and build fully functional apps for Android devices. Students are encouraged to use their own Android devices for hands-on testing and exploitation.

Benefits of learning how to code:

  • Learn a variety of programming languages (HTML, Java, Javascript, C++, Python) through the year
  • Improve the ability to focus
  • Develop computational thinking skills
  • Develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.
  • Take on an iterative approach to problem solving
  • Enhance Digital Literacy skills
  • Build confidence and creativity
  • Prepare for secondary education and projects at school and higher learning
  • Prepare for the jobs of the future in a rapidly advancing technological world
