“We are at the very beginning in introducing coding in our school, so there is nervousness and anxiety, but we are excited about the way forward and we are confident that we will make it.”
Ridwan Samodien 💬Principal, Kannemeyer Primary School
At Kannemeyer, teachers will be starting with the 21st century coding pedagogy course which introduces and covers the key pedagogical principles for maximising student learning and engagement through collaboration and creativity. It is the foundation for all our other modules.
🚀 Forward with confidence
The school’s plan starts with two modules: Everyday CT and Code & Create. They enable teachers to teach their students computational thinking with unplugged activities and also by coding. The last module of the three year plan for Kannemeyer school is Automate, an introductory robotics course for beginner programmers.
