Codey Rocky & Neuron Discovery
COMPUTER SCIENCE& TECHNOLOGY
Codey Rocky & Neuron Education Kit is a package designed for programming and maker education. In addition to over 10 electronic modules that come with Codey Rocky, six Neuron blocks are included in the kit, which allow students to gain a more intuitive understanding of how sensors work. Neuron makes it easier to design, create and show projects. With the help of this kit, teachers can develop courses on programming, AI and IoT, and organize robotics or creative competitions.
In this course, a combination of software and hardware is adopted to stimulate children’s confidence in creating and interest in programming. The course uses a pair programming model; pair programming is a software developing process where two programmers work together. One is responsible for running the program and the other observing how it works. It’s proved that pair programming helps students learn from and cooperate with each other.
The course also features unplugged coding activities that allow students to learn programming through games. Unplugged coding is a learning activity at which cards and color pens or other materials are used to introduce programming and computational thinking. Even without a computer, teachers can still teach the basics of computer science with the help of unplugged coding activities.
The course materials comprise a teacher’s book, a student’s book, a self ssessment form for students and a list of conditionals for practice.
