Best Coding & Computational Thinking Solution

Recognizes the best educational solution or platform that teaches students coding and computational skills, logic, problem solving, computer science, and algorithmic thinking. Solutions may include programing language platforms, robotics and coding courses, not excluding hardware options or a blend of hardware and software. Solutions should allow students to think creatively, reason systematically, work collaboratively and share their creations with others.

Coding Galaxy - Cherrypicks

Coding Galaxy is an all-in-one computational skill learning program which integrates the innovative use of mobile technology with effective pedagogy to transform the traditionally mundane learning experience into a creative and interactive one. It is designed to aid 21st-century learners in developing computational thinking skills while broadening essential life skills with the 4Cs (Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking), as well as problem-solving skills.

Through learning with Coding Galaxy at school, students enjoy a complete computational thinking learning experience with a variety of activities including concept demonstration with real-life examples, group activities, games, and eSports. With the web-based AI-powered intelligent learning management system for teachers, it provides instructors with real-time reports with learning analytics, giving teachers meaningful insights into students' progress and learning patterns, and also teaching effectiveness.

Coding Galaxy lets students learn by playing, raising motivation and engagement with an adventurous setting with heroic tasks to complete, and allowing the learning mind to challenge itself in a safe and controlled environment that encourages socialization, communication and collaboration, as well as rewarding the completion of missions via trial and error.

    CoderZ - Intelitek

    CoderZ is a powerful, online platform that teaches students valuable STEM skills including coding, robotics and physical computing. It has a fun gamified interface with a graphic or text-based code editor and 3D virtual robots simulation. The solution caters to both novices and experts, offering a simple, Scratch-like language called Blockly for new coders or allowing more advanced students to start working directly with Java code. Students learn and practice coding skills by completing missions with their cyber-virtual robot, which reacts directly to students’ input. Integrated curriculum are aligned to standards like the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice, Career Readiness Standard, Next Generation Science Standards, and K-12 Computer Science Standards (Computer Science Teachers Association) and state CS requirements. CoderZ is teacher optimized and integrates an engaging curriculum and a learning management tool including project submission and grading, class and student statistics, video tutorials, and more. Detailed teacher guides and a wealth of tools help teachers introduce STEM concepts to their classroom. Being online, CoderZ also resolves one of the biggest challenges for educators by providing enhanced visibility and reporting of student progress. By design, it reaches all students without expensive robotics hardware, is more engaging and inclusive because of the online nature – giving teachers and administrations measurable outcomes in real-time.
