On The Road to Code - Learn About The Digital World.
"Kids are fantastic at gaming, but when it came down to using ICT equipment there is a knowledge gap - and parents struggled too." -Kenneth Dennedy, Principal of Scoil Íosa, Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo.-
JAGGO Education aims to fill this knowledge gap with the introduction of Road to Code - Based on the principle of 'learning by doing' unplugged resources that teach through play how a computer works and the basic principles of computational thinking.
kids learn how to read code, understand algorithms, and how to become a programmer.
On the Road to Code, away from the screen, we introduce kids to an exciting digital world that enables them to become digital creators and not only digital consumers.
Though play and having fun they learn the fundamental skills needed to understand digital media and express their own creativity.
The educational games also provide a clear link to 'plugged' screen activities' through -
Fundamental understanding of digital technology
Transferring digital code into real structures
An explanation of technical terms
Teachers and Parents- You don't have to be a tech wizard -
The resources support an age appropriate entry into the digital world that teachers and parents can easily teach and kids can easily understand.
They were developed in collaboration with the Basic Computer Science research group at the University of Bamberg Germany, and are scientifically sound.
