NEW Learning Guides - All about kids coding concepts.

The school year is underway, and we love hearing from both teachers and parents about how excited they are to teach kids coding. We’ve also heard from you that it can be difficult to fully support learners if you aren’t exactly sure what kids coding concepts to cover. We always strive to make Kodable as easy to use as possible for educators in a child's life, so you asked for more support, and we listened. 

We are thrilled to share three brand new Kodable Learning Guides designed to walk you through the world of Kodable! Each guide offers a comprehensive look at everything you could possibly need to know about what children are learning in Smeeborg, Asteroidia, and Bug World.

What you'll find in each Learning Guide

We realize in order to teach kids coding with Kodable you need to know how the concepts work, as well as the important vocabulary, how each concept is taught in Kodable, and what kids will see. Each guide has several parts covering these aspects of teaching kids coding.
