Coronavirus quarantine: elearning and online activities for kids

Schools are closed in many countries and Codelearn has decided to close all its centres temporarily, which means that our students will have to face 100% online training for the first time, since the Codelearn method is based on a blended learning approach. Over the next few weeks Codelearn offers the possibility to keep working from home, which has become an opportunity to try an...

Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer in history

The gender gap in STEM related fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) persists all over the world and there are some countries where it is really significant. On February 11 we celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a day that was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 to fight for an equal access to STEM careers and to promote...

Drones are part of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), which means that they have no pilot and can be controlled either remotely or autonomously

Throughout the school year, Codelearn spends different weeks working specific technologies. The first special week of this year has been about drones. Last week all Codelearn centres studied the operation of drones, the parts of a drone and the different types of drones that exist nowadays, as well as their different applications. Students were also taught about the current legislation for both recreational and professional...

Homeschooling: learning to code at your own pace following the Codelearn method

For its approach, its view on education and the nature of the method, Codelearn is an after-school program suitable for homeschooling families and can be adapted to all its modalities due to its degree of freedom and the flexibility it offers to each person. The online platform is a really good tool to learn different programming languages in an educational environment far from the traditional...

STEAM education helps developing computational thinking

Everyday there are more and more countries committed to introducing children to science and technology through a new practical and playful learning model that fosters the development of the so-called STEAM skills. While we already talked about STEM fields in the 90s, this idea has evolved over the last years and has added the creative, open and innovative component of Arts, so little by little...

Arduino is an open-source hardware platform based on a board that allows to create interactive electronic objects

Do you remember our article about the difference between hardware and software? Today we should look back at those terms for a moment so we can start talking about Arduino, an open-source hardware platform based on a board that allows to create interactive electronic objects, such as robots or domotic systems. Therefore, when a Codelearn student says he has just started learning Arduino, it means...

Codelearn certificates prove our students tech skills

The main goal of boosting Codelearn certificates is to specify which kind of competences have been acquired by students who pass a level exam, that is to say, which programming languages they are capable to use and which kind of technologies they are able to work with. Thus, ideally these certificates of competencies will be useful to compare Codelearn studies to other formal education studies....

Computational thinking helps us finding the best solution to any kind of problem

Computational thinking is a mental process that leads us to find optimal, efficient, creative and open solutions for problems we have to face not only in technological areas, but also in any other sphere of our daily life. In order to communicate with computers and be able to understand them, computer scientists must learn how to think as a machine does: through decomposition in different...
