At codingEdge Technology, we have a real passion for code-based technologies and for digital literacy education. We love the power and versatility of code. It can be used to run games, to manage computers or to control robots (one of our favourite activities!). In fact, most of today’s technologies depend on code to run.
Robotics is currently one of the most progressive and captivating elements of digital technology. As such, we find robots to be ideal teaching aids for our school programs and workshops (including the adults’ workshops – why should the kids have all the fun?) Our intention is to teach coding for a purpose and provide the full technology perspective.
Robots are composed of electronics, so we teach the electronics. Robots run on code, so we teach coding. Once we get to the robots, a fuller understanding prevails. We don’t just restrict our coding to robots though. That versatility of code, extends to our games and application programming, which can include interactive stories, digital art, musical animations and extend to virtually any field of interest.
In keeping with the versatility theme, our aim is not just to teach the use of a specific coding language, but rather to teach the underlying coding concepts. By introducing standard coding principles, we not only provide a greater understanding of what the code is doing, but this also makes these coding skills transferable.
