Review~ Coding for Kids from Simply Coding

Disclaimer~ I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

Hello again, dear friends! Do you have student interested in learning how to code? If you do, you should check out Coding for Kids Annual Membership from Simply Coding.

What is Coding for Kids from Simply Coding?

Coding for Kids is an online coding program that is self-paced. This online, interactive curriculum teaches students how to code their own computer games, websites, and apps through the correct structure and environment. The curriculum does not use the drop and drag technique. Students will not be dropping pictures and codes into boxes until something finally appears on the screen. Students will learn by having fun. Students will play games that will teach them how to write their own code in a text editor and host their projects online. This is not a boring curriculum!

Coding for Kids from Simply Coding is geared for students age 11-18. A younger student may be able to work through the program, but the curriculum was written to appeal to students in this age range.

Students will need a PC computer or laptop with Windows or Mac. They will need 2GD RAM and 10 GB Free Hard Drive Space. Students cannot use iPads, Tablets, Cell Phones, and Chromebooks.

What is the goal of Simply Coding?

Build a student's confidence in coding
Provide students with interactive lessons and clear step-by-step instructions

For this review, I received an annual membership. The annual membership does come with a 10-day free trial, so if you're undecided students can give the program a try and see what it's like. I was surprised by the variety of topics covered in this program. Students should easily be able to find a topic that interests them.

Each topic is divided into lessons. Within in each lesson are several modules to work through, After the student works through the modules, they will have a quiz to see what they have learned and remembered. The videos are short and well done. At the end of each lesson, the students will complete a test and add to their portfolio.

Coding for Kids is so much more than simple coding. The curriculum covers photography, coding, website building, apps, and so much more. Teens of all ages will find a topic they are interested in and easily work through the lessons. Simply Coding is a great way to prepare students for the computer world we live in!
