Our curriculum consists learning modules and hands-on implementation projects. It supports Finnish national curriculum objectives for programming and algorithmic thinking. Projects are integrated with subject studies and can be used for phenomenon-based learning.
The Code School Curriculum is based on the objectives and models defined by the Finnish National Core Curriculum for basic education grades 1-9. In Finland, programming and robotics together with 21st century skills have been taught in basic education since 2016.
The curriculum emphasizes transversal competences (skills and attitudes) as part of everyday education in schools. Transversal competence areas are based on the theory for 21st century skills and multi-disciplinary project-based learning.
The pedagogical principles for the curriculum are based on:
- Project-based learning (PBL)
- Phenomena-based learning (PhenoBL)
- STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths)
- Computational thinking (CT)
Curriculum for Basic Education
The AI curriculum is targeted for Grades 1-9. It contains curriculum both for Primary schools (Grades 1-6) and for Senior schools (Grades 7-9). The AI Curriculum consists of 180 lessons to be used from Grade 1 to Grade 9. The lessons provide a framework for creating 16 projects with a project-based learning model. There are 6 projects for Primary school and 10 projects for Senior school.
Curriculum for After-School activities
The AI curriculum is targeted for ages 4-18 to be used in extra-curricular activities such as code clubs and camps. Curriculum consists of 240 lessons that can be studied partly concurrently, forming a learning path for 2-4 years.
