Rudy Neufeld introduces step-by-step information, ideas, lesson plans and activities for screen-free coding using Kai’s Education’s cards and KaiBot, where learners learn concretely by acting and doing, leading to more abstract coding on-screen through block coding in an online coding environment, Kainundrum.
Learners will be able to think mathematically through problems and to design and solve tasks within game-based learning.
This eResource is suitable for K to 8 learners for home or group/school use, as well as for the teacher/parent in order to introduce coding in an environment rich in mathematics. Previous knowledge of coding is not required.
To assist in finding appropriate lessons, activities/exercises are categorized under Screen-Free Coding, and/or Online Coding, with levels of Beginner (perhaps ages 5 to 8), Intermediate (perhaps ages 9 to 12) and Advanced (perhaps ages 13+).
