Go Bananas for Coding

by Lori Gracey

If you’re looking for resources to use with elementary and middle school students during Computer Science Education Week December 5-11, look no further than Learning.com’s free trial of EasyCode. Providing ready-to-go lesson plans, a quick-start guide, and in-depth video tutorials, the program helps students learn to code in CoffeeScript, a powerful coding language that is the foundation for JavaScript, the programming language for HTML.

“To give today’s students a competitive edge in the digital economy, it is more critical than ever that they build a solid foundation in computer science concepts,” said Keith Oelrich, CEO, Learning.com. “We are passionate about helping teachers introduce even their youngest students to computational thinking and coding, without needing any prior experience in teaching these skills.”

EasyCode offers elementary and middle school educators a fun, game-based, and turnkey instructional solution that features story and skill challenges, game lessons, a game builder, and progress monitoring so teachers can quickly and efficiently introduce coding skills to their students.

The Go Bananas movement extends Learning.com’s commitment to CSforAll, the President’s call-to-action for more computer science opportunities in all K-12 schools. CSforAll empowers K-12 students to learn computer science and develop the computational thinking skills necessary to spur the transition from consumer to creator in today’s digital economy.

Teachers interested in participating in the free trial may sign up here. Registration is open through November 29.
