Jump-start students' interest in computer science with the Code Jumper! Originally designed by Microsoft and developed by APH, this fun and engaging product is designed to teach students how to write computer code.
Specially developed classroom curriculum (19 lessons representing 25 hours of classroom instruction).
The lessons include unplugged activities, guided activities, tutorial videos and exploration time. The curriculum also encourages use of a computer science journal.
The lessons span a full range of skills from the basics of computer programming to more complex topics, like topographies and binary numbers.
Each lesson includes an unguided activity, a Code Jumper guided activity, exploration time, tutorial videos, journaling and an assessment.
Brightly coloured plastic pods with oversized buttons and knobs are connected by 'jumper cables' (thick cords) to physically create computer code that can tell stories, music, and even crack jokes.
Makes coding immediately accessible for kids who are blind or have low vision, and who also have no prior computing experience.
Intuitive system designed to be inclusive, enabling all students to work together and build confidence through socialisation, cooperation, critical thinking, and hands on learning.
Any teacher can facilitate Code Jumper lesson plans without prior computer science experience! A full library of curricula for coding, including teacher guidance and student activities, is included.
Code Jumper can be used on a Windows 10 computer or via the Code Jumper Android app.
Code Jumper technology takes block coding off the screen and puts it on the table in front of you, making it accessible to all students. This intuitive system teaches underlying skills that can empower the next generation to pursue meaningful careers in computer science.
Due to hygienic reasons this product is non-returnable unless faulty.
