Early Coding Book
Inspire creativity in children and young learners by helping them to start programming computers from age five. This is a step-by-step curriculum based book that can be taught by anyone at home or in a classroom.
What is in the book
Africa's first curriculum based Computer Programming Textbooks for Primary Schools and young learners
Core CS Concepts
We carefully explain core Computer Science concepts and principles that are foundational to an in-depth understanding of programming and software development, like Algorithms, Sequence, Events, Loops, Conditionals, DataTypes and more, in a way that children gain genuine understanding.
We designed activities that help drive deeper understanding of the lessons even without initial access to a computer. These hands-on exercises and puzzles help learners practice and prepare for coding even when offline, making the books effective even in large classrooms.
Coding with Scratch
The first language that we teach through the books is Scratch. It is free and works offline so you don’t need to worry about internet access, yet it is thorough enough to implement every concept or principle learnt. Learners create real projects. Eventually, we move on to coding in Python.
As the world becomes more internet driven, we don’t want to assume that children will just become natural responsible consumers of digital technology, they need to be taught, so we added key lessons on Digital Citizenship like staying safe online, creating good passwords, cyberbullying and privacy.
