Teaches basics of coding & computational concepts

Overview

Ready is an online visual software creator tool for students. It allows students to experience coding and digital software programming through video game creation. Teachers download accompanying lesson plans to guide students through the digital creation process. Ready is free to use.

APPROACH

Both student and teachers begin using Ready by logging in and creating an account. Once logged in, students can browse a library of lessons from the ‘Activity Arcade’ dashboard. Students select a lesson based off of a topic (Starting Out, Game Design, Science, or Storytelling), difficulty level, and length. Once they select their desired or assigned programming concept, student users watch the instructional video. To begin coding their own programs, students visit the ‘My Projects’ dashboard from their home profile. Here they follow templated projects that correspond with the video topics they just watched and create their own game or software.

Teachers can download accompanying slides for five lesson plans that correspond with the instructional student videos, design templates, and Ready technologies-- Introduction to Ready, Air Hockey, Tilt to Move Adventure, Art with Ready, and Flappy Bird. They can direct and assign students instructional videos to watch and projects to complete using Ready.
