Kodable

Coding for Kids 4-10

iPhone/iPad - Free

Teacher Overview

Kodable is one of the best programming app for kids to teaching basic to complex level programme procedures. Kodable provides easy to follow lesson plans focused on student outcomes so teachers can teach their students to code, no computer science knowledge required.

Teacher Review

Kodable breaks down computer science into the basic concepts kids need for a strong foundation life. Kodable offers materials focused on topics ranging from communication and social emotional learning to real world impact of computer science. Students learning computer science through the Kodable and CodeHS K-12 pathway will learn foundational skills in computer science preparing them for the next step in their learning, whether that is taking an additional course or pursuing computer science in college or career.

Choose from over 70 lessons with both on-screen and off-screen components. Every lesson includes instruction guidance, vocabulary words, and student materials. You can teach K-5 computer science as it’s own content area or integrate into math, ELA, digital citizenship, robotics, or other subject area.

The student can choose a character to roll through the levels and will come across directional, rotational, colour coding and looping procedures. Level 1 eases the student into the app and its progresses nicely through further stages, all but a little repetitive at times.

Where this app really comes into its own is the Teacher Mode where the teacher can share vocabulary, create a class account, manage levels and show a classroom tutorial. We recommend that this is looked at first before you introduce the app to the classroom. 

Curriculum Pathway of Kodable

  • Learn to identify code as a language and how to apply algorithms to complete computational tasks.

  • Learn to read, modify and write scripts to change what happens in JavaScript programs.

  • Solidify logical thinking and problem solving skills, while transitioning to typing-based coding.

  • Learn Javascript, Python, HTML, CSS, Java and more.

Developer Description

Kodable is an educational coding game offering a kid-friendly introduction to programming concepts and problem solving. 

Kodable is an award-winning coding curriculum for kids ages 4-10. Kodable is trusted by over 50% of US Elementary Schools, it teaches your kids everything they need to know about computer science, from zero to JavaScript - no experience required!
 
What they learn at Kodable
 
Kodable is features age-appropriate games and activities that transition your kids from learning how to think like a programmer all the way to writing real code using our custom, built-for-kids coding interface.
 
The concepts learned through the Kodable includes Sequence/ Order of operations, Algorithmic operations, Conditional logic statements, Syntax, variables including Strings, Integers, and Arrays, Object Oriented Programming, Classes and Subclasses, Properties and Methods
 
Kodable for Teachers is the only complete K-5 curriculum taking students from learning to think like a programmer in Kindergarten to writing REAL JavaScript by 5th grade. No computer science knowledge required of teachers!
 
Why Code with Kodable?
 
Even before your children can pronounce the word "algorithm" they have an astounding ability to learn how to use them. Today's best programmers fell in love with coding at a young age by experimenting with the concepts taught in Kodable. Understanding computer science empowers your child for the jobs of tomorrow, and expands your child's mind to solve problems today in more intelligent ways. Students also learn incredibly important ‘soft skills’ such as problem solving skills, higher level thinking skills, collaboration skills, communication skills and critical thinking skills.


LOST IN PLACE

The fuzzFamily crashed their spaceship on Smeeborg and need your help to explore the planet's Technomazes. Use your finger to drag and drop instructions for your fuzzes to follow. Then hit Play to watch them roll through the maze with curiosity. BEWARE: Fuzzes are very LOGICAL and will follow every command exactly as you tell them! Get rewarded with stars, coins, and even EXTRA members of the fuzzFamily as you successfully complete mazes.

Beautifully designed with little ones in mind, Kodable comes free with 45 levels of programmable fun! You can unlock additional worlds with in-app purchases, or get them all with our educational app Kodable Class.
