Year 5 Coding Club

Featured Year level: Year 5
Subject area: Junior School Coding Club
Focus: Inroduction to Coding with the Tynker app
Code powers virtually everything around us. Learning to code teaches students how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. Coding can also bring your ideas to life, through the creation of apps and programs. 
Year 5 students, who are part of the J.S. Coding Club are learning to code using the Tynker iPad app.
The Tynker courses allow students to seamlessly transition to the Swift programming language within the Tynker app. The course teaches computer science in a way that combines offline “unplugged” activities with practical coding exercises.
These free courses, available through the Tynker iPad app, allow students to solve coding puzzles and create do-it-yourself projects using Tynker’s visual code blocks and the Swift programming language.
If you would like to know more about Tynker, Swift or coding on an iPad, feel free to get in contact with me or check out Apple's Everyone can Code website.
