Why teach coding during the school day?
Coding is one of the most important skills for our students to be learning. From the UK to Finland, students around the world are starting to learn the basics of computer science during the regular school day.
As the world becomes more and more dependent on software and technology, our children need to be equipped with the skills to compete and thrive in that world.
Okay, but I don't have time to teach another subject!
Teaching kids how to code during the school day not only prepares them for amazing careers when they're older - it's also an extremely powerful way to deepen students' engagement with mathematics and ELA. You can use coding to reinforce specific math concepts, test your students' reading comprehension, and even tell interactive stories of their own.
As a result, every minute your students spend coding is time spent practicing their core academics.
Isn't Code.org good enough for our students?
While Code.org is an amazing resource, it only serves as the most basic introduction to computer science principles, and doesn't offer you or your students a way to build real coding projects of your own.
Furthermore, given the simplicity of the activities on Code.org, it won't hold your students attention for very long. By having your students work on real coding projects, you can keep them engaged and challenged for the entire school year.
How old do my students need to be to start learning?
Thanks to the incredible resources available to us today, students as young as kindergarteners can learn foundational computer science concepts. While they won't necessarily be coding outright, they'll still be building a strong foundation in the fundamentals.
Isn't learning how to code difficult? Do I need to have a lot of technical experience?
Not at all. Many of our teachers express some concern about their ability to learn how to code before starting our course. And after their first 90 minutes of training, nearly 100% of them report feeling confident about their ability to teach code back to their students.
That's because you'll be learning how to use the fundamentals in a way that makes sense for you as a teacher. So while you'll probably need some extra training and practice before you can apply for a job at Google, you'll definitely be able to create simple, purposeful, and amazing apps for your students.
Is the training really free?
It most certainly is! With a Teacher Account, you'll be able to complete a 7-unit course on the fundamentals of code - absolutely, 100% for free.
How long will the training take to complete?
The course typically takes 4-6 hours to complete. We generally suggest spreading the training over the course of three to five days (about an hour to an hour and a half per day).
How can I get coding lesson plans to use in my classroom?
Naturally, you'll want to be able to bring the skills you're gaining from this course back to your classroom. That's why we've created standards-aligned K-6 lesson plans that you can use to start leading coding sections for your students. You'll be able to access two FREE weeks worth of coding lesson plans for your grade level.
Want to fully immerse your school or school district and get full access to the codeCampus teaching platform? Send us a line at email@example.com.
Can I complete this course on my iPad?
No - you will need to have access to a desktop or laptop computer to complete all of the activities that are part of this course!
Will I be certified to teach CS by completing this course?
Yes! When you successfully complete the entire course, you'll be able to download a diploma with your name on it that certifies your ability to teach fundamental CS in your classroom.
Can this course count towards my professional development hours?
It absolutely can, but that's something you'll need to discuss with your principal.
Are the lesson plans standards-aligned?
Yes. Each lesson plan module is marked with the specific Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards that it incorporates. Most lessons involve ample tie-ins to both Mathematics and ELA-oriented material, and give teachers the flexibility to adapt the projects and activities around what they're teaching in class.

15. Dispute Resolution .
15.1. Mandatory Arbitration. For any dispute you have with CodeCampus, you agree to first contact CodeCampus and attempt to resolve the dispute informally. If CodeCampus has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in Orange County, California, in the United States. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys' fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. This arbitration agreement survives the termination of this Agreement between you and CodeCampus.
15.2. Waivers of Class Action and Trial by Jury. You and CodeCampus both waive any right to participate in any class action involving disputes between us, and you and CodeCampus are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. All claims must be brought in the parties' individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims. This class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration agreement and may not be severed. If for any reason this class action waiver is found unenforceable, then the entire arbitration agreement will not apply. However, the waiver of the right to trial by jury set forth in this Section will remain in full force and effect.
15.3. Other Remedies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Nothing in this Section precludes you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service.
15.4. Time Limitations. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICE OR THIS AGREEMENT MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
