Learning coding & integrate into core subjects

Overview

Codesters teaches students the Python coding language through a series of courses that integrate Common Core State Standards aligned middle school math curriculum in Statistics, Probability and Geometry. Once a teacher, principal or other administrator signs up for Codesters they choose a course, assign it to students and monitor their progress on projects and assessments in the Codesters Learning Management System. Anyone can create a free Codesters account, but in order to use Codesters curriculum, schools must purchase a subscription.

APPROACH

When building projects in Codesters, users drag and drop features into a text editor which transforms commands like “Set a Background Color,” into actual Python syntax. Users then save, edit and run the code in a simulator to see the result. More experienced users can edit code directly or do a mix of dragging and dropping commands and editing code.

Students taking Codesters courses are given specific objectives along with tests and assessments to analyze their progress. Students are required to draw shapes and build games by editing code. Students also have access to a dashboard where they can follow and message their classmates and teacher.

Teachers have access to the Codesters marketplace to purchase and assign courses to students as well as a dashboard to assess student performance. Metrics that teachers can assess include time spent on lessons, assessment scores and overall progress throughout the course. Teachers also have the ability to take courses and simulate the student experience in “Student Mode.”

PRICING
