What can EduCode™ do for my kids?
In the 21st century, STEM education and digital skills are as important as literacy and math skills. Unfortunately, these aren’t readily accessible in most schools and afterdschool tech programs are costly.
About half of the jobs today will be automated to some degree. At the same time, an upwards of 1.4 million jobs in tech will go vacant in the US by 2020. Our reliance on tech is increasing, and likewise, the number of people needed to code it.
So will learning the skills of today be enough for the tech-driven careers of tomorrow?
Your kids already know how to use technology, but why not empower them to create it? Coding not only opens new opportunities, but also teaches them how to think in innovative ways.
EduCode™ makes coding and computer science education accessible and affordable to youth of all learning styles and backgrounds, on a large scale, without the need for expert guidance from a teacher. Self-directed courses empower your kids to learn coding independently.
Potential ImpactIf kids as young as 10 begin learning coding and computer science through EduCode™, they will possess the equivalent of a Bachelor of Computer Science degree by the time they graduate high school. Even with a little coding knowledge, it could:
Enable youth to gain well-paying, fulfilling summer jobs.
Start careers right after graduation, without going to university.
Elevate living standards of disadvantaged youth.
Inspire youth to use tech skills for entrepreneurship.
What's Included in EduCode™ Content?EduCode™ is a web-based software that spurs learning through a self-directed microlearning coding and computer science curriculum developed by university educators.
810+ cinematic tutorial videos with captivating storylines that educate & entertain.
Equivalent to what’s taught in a Bachelor of Computer Science, tailored for ages 10+.
Gamified real-world projects allow learners to interact with the story and characters through code.
Learners and facilitators get instant feedback and real-time technical and academic support.
The Self-Directed Gamified STEM Learning ExperienceMicrolearning, cinematic story-based videos and immersive projects distills and contextualizes industry-standard coding for children as young as 10. This way, students will not only learn WHAT information is being taught, but also WHY it is relevant.
