ConquerComputing Relaunch update from Debbie
I just wanted to say how brilliant I think ConquerComputing is. I decided to start at the beginning and work my way through. It’s great for kids but amazingly I am learning things too! I am really impressed with its makeover and new parent friendly guides.
It starts with ‘What is a computer’ and ‘What is an Algorithm’ and explains simply but comprehensively with a variety of videos, worksheets and games to consolidate what was covered in each lesson. There is a great deal of content and I would say it’s probably suitable for age 6 to 12 or maybe even older if the child has not done any proper computing (as opposed to just playing games).
You get a parents login and a child login with parent guides that are easy to use and help parents to support what the child is learning. You can see what your child has done and their scores so you know how they are doing.
It teaches Scratch in a step by step way so you know everything is covered. It’s a really good way to learn Scratch coding as it starts assuming no prior knowledge which is great for me! I’m sure there must be other parents who would find it useful to learn Scratch alongside their child so they can help them progress. I am going to do the lessons and then stun my grandkids with my new skills!
It goes on to some quite complicated things so I will report back when I have done some more!
Perfect for young children, the language is simple and child-friendly. Each of the exciting projects is introduced by a short video, narrated in an appealing ,manner to guide children step by step through the topic.
Colourful worksheets support the concepts learned, providing practice to consolidate understanding and helping children to build up their own coding projects.
Around 1,500 online ‘Play’ activities will engage youngsters with instant feedback. These include drag-and-drop coding, word searches, card sorting, Binary challenges, multiple choice questions, input/outputs to make words, creating their own Pizza or dressing Mrs Pineapple Head!
