Hey Code Combat community -
I’m planning to present at our district’s upcoming technology conference on coding with kids. Last year I talked about Code.org, but this year I’d like to showcase CodeCombat. I typically have 30 teachers at my workshops, although one never knows since it is dependent on scheduling & attendance. I’ve had as few as 8 and as many as 80-ish.
I currently have my students complete Code.org’s K-8 Accelerated Comp Sci class first and then move them to the CodeCombat platform for lessons on syntax and “real” programming language. This structure is working well for my middle school students (primarily grade 6).
Does anyone have training materials or a presentation geared toward teachers already created that they are willing to share?
