1. Open Source Coding Curriculum

CEL Coding Curriculum consists of 6 courses which gradually exposes kids, from age 9-14, to concepts, practices and mindsets to develop computational thinking and other 21st century skills. It empowers kids to make creative applications and animations to express themselves and surroundings which brings relevance and makes the process engaging and joyful. Click here to watch the video to have insights of the classroom and student projects.

The salient features of CEL Coding Curriculum are,
  1.  Scaffold curriculum with focus on researched concepts, skills and mindset to build thinking and 21st century skills.
  2. Higher engagement and confident kids through hands on contextual pedagogy to express and solve problems around them
  3.  Use of open source technologies and tools to make the learning process smooth and  affordable

Course 1 Learn to code with Scratch

Many teachers think that it takes exceptional technical skills and intelligence which only a few people have to bring coding to kids. However, we believe that it doesn’t! This curriculum gives incredible introduction to coding and helps any enthusiastic teacher to overcome all the fear of learning and teaching coding and empowers them to bring coding to their students. Moreover, the detailed framework, comprehensive lesson plans, engaging videos and worksheets will help teachers to learn coding as well as start teaching in effective and efficient ways to students of grade 4 and above. Students create animations and applications about things around them and begin their journey into the wonderful world of coding building critical thinking and creativity.

So, let’s get started!!! Curricum Framework
The curriculum framework gives insight about the jounrey of this course. It depecits the learning objective, learning outcomes and different focus areas introduced in a scaffold manner in the course. Curriculum-Framework-Learn-to-Code-with-Scratch Download

Course 2 Learn to code with Pocket Code

Children need 21st century skills like creativity and critical thinking to thrive in the rapidly developing world and we believe that coding can be a great tool to build these skills. This curriculum will empower kids in grade 6 and above to learn to code on smart phones with the Pocket Code platform to make games and applications to express themselves and solve problems.
The 10 lessons in the curriculum are,
  • Scaffold to build fundamental coding concepts,
  • Project based to solve contextual problems to build engagement in children and
  • Based on an open source platform Pocket Code which would let children code on smart phones if they don’t have access to computers.The resources consist of curriculum framework to give a sneak peek into the overall journey in the curriculum, presentations for each lesson to help students/parents/teachers to understand the content and videos to get step by step instructions for better understanding and engagement.
We believe that it would be a great repository for students to begin their coding journey and will give perspective to parents, teachers and educators while working with children.
We want to thank NetWeb Software for the support to build this curriculum so that children can learn to code to make the world a better place.

Course 3 Learn to code with HTML, CSS & JavaScript

The Internet has increased our global reach through various websites and web applications. Moreover, it’s quick and easy now to access, process and send information for different purposes from across the globe. This course on HTML-CSS-JavaScript is a well thought experience for kids to further nurture their creative abilities with computers after the fundamental exposure on Scratch. This course introduces them to basic technologies that go behind web development and empower them with concepts and skills to make simple webpage and web application.

Features and benefits:
    • Scaffold exposure to concept of Tags, Attributes, DOM and other programming concepts make learning easy
    • Builds strong fundamentals to grasp further advanced technologies with each lesson focused on researched concepts
    • Encourages children to create their own basic web products about their surrounding
    • Visual Studio Code environment to facilitate the usage of syntax

Course 4 has 10 lessons each of 90 minutes spiraled around 2 themes which helps them build a basic webpage and web application to express themselves and solve problems. Moreover, various tasks and assessments in each lesson would give ample opportunities to children to practice targeted concepts and master them.

2. Video Series on Skills and Mindset

Course 4 How to Write Problem Statement for Kids

This is a video series to help kids Plan, Research, Synthesize and Refine information needed to write Effective Problem Statements for any kind of Problem Solving process and competitions.

Our video series will help kids frame qualitative and quantitative problem statements. It will help kids to explore more about the people facing the problem, their experience and identify the causes.

The video shares a four step process to frame the problem statement i.e. plan, research, synthesize. Each video focuses on one step. It introduces the step by the protagonist with examples/one specific example and fun to do activities for kids. This video series would be a great resource to write the concept note while participating in CEL Kids Hackathon, a coding event for kids in grade 5-9 to showcase their coding talent. Moreover, it would be a great resource while participating in any problem solving event/competition. In addition to that, this video series would be a great help while planning an informative essay writing lesson for children in primary grades.

We believe that this video series would help you to explore and communicate the problem better and design innovative solutions to impact maximum number of people around you.

Course 5 Collaboration for Kids

Collaboration for Kids Video Series has 4 videos aiming to break down the process of collaboration for kids and shares few child-friendly strategies that will help them to collaborate and thrive while doing distinguished activities.

Course 6 CS Unplugged Video Series

Computer Science concepts are exciting and build critical thinking and other 21st century skills. In this video series, we bring to you some of the amazing computer science concepts in an unplugged way i.e. without computers.

The concepts are weaved around hands-on activities like finding the shortest route as used in Google maps, etc. which will help them understand the ways in which the concept works in real life.

Course 7 Student Showcase

We bring you a sneak peek into our classrooms to help you get a better idea of how children use coding to express and solve problems. There are also strategies which we believe would help teachers and educators conduct better coding sessions.
