Coding and Robotics is, by its nature, a practical subject. The best way to teach this subject is through activities and tasks. Other methods include:
- Step-by-step demonstrations and explanations
- Giving explicit instructions with lots of scaffolding
- Game-based learning
- Project-based inquiries focused on problem-oriented learning and cooperative learning.
How can Cambridge Connect resources help teach Coding and Robotics?
- Learner’s Books have clear illustrations of computer applications that allow learners to get familiar with interfaces such as ScratchJr before using them on a device.
- Instructions break down activities into easy-to-follow tasks with QR code-linked video worked examples.
- Free worksheets provide additional activities to be completed in the classroom or at home.
- A comprehensive Teacher’s Guide is downloadable from Cambridge GO, and has all the necessary information a teacher new to the subject will need.
