What is Kidzcourse
Today’s world is changing. And fast. Coding, robotics, virtual reality and more look to play large parts in the future of industry. Your kids need to be prepared for the world of tomorrow. As your kids grow, your homeschool lesson plans need to grow with them.
But how do you keep up when the concepts kids need to learn today are so foreign to you?
That’s where Kidzcourse comes in. Kidzcourse is an online platform designed for students 6 to 12 years old. It helps you integrate tech into your lessons and learn alongside your kids, helping them and you build up much-needed skills.
How Kidzcourse can help
Enter the exciting world of robots, computer science and tech through an approachable and interactive online platform model. Even if you feel like a total newbie when it comes to tech, Kidzcourse’s tiered structure and creative presentation will help you speak the language of digital in no time.
Your kids will create projects that are fun to work on and that they are proud to show off.
This is not a “set it and forget it” approach either. Kidzcourse is designed to be used together with your kids. The videos and activities introduce the knowledge, and then your teaching shows them how to put that knowledge into practice.
1. Pick a course.There are courses for solo or team work and every age and interest!
2. Prepare your lesson.Collect the materials, print the worksheets and start the tutorial video.
3. Educational Fun!The videos guide your kids step by step through each course.
As higher education professionals and parents ourselves, we struggled with how to best prepare today’s young students for a world that we didn’t even fully understand. What we did know is that we didn’t want our kids to lag behind because of skills we lacked. We wanted to create a toolkit to teach students important digital, real-world skills. We started the original Kidzcourse as a collection of video tutorials to explain activities like tinkering with tech, crafting, coding and experimenting. Using our own young kids as a pilot program of sorts, the response we got was amazing. The kids loved the interactivity of building apps, learning the language of coding, and making short animated movies. However, creating all these tasks was incredibly time consuming and we quickly realized that for most teachers, building a lesson plan that was this extensive just wasn’t going to be possible. So we decided to open up Kidzcourse to the world so that all teachers could pull from our resources to help students everywhere.
My kids (8 and 10 years old) do the same lessons together. But because it leaves room for their own creativity, they can each work on their own level. Very convenient if you homeschool your children who have different ages!
