How to teach kids coding online?

The popularity of learning platforms such as OutSchool attest to the fact that you can teach kids just about anything online today. As digital natives, they’ve already broken the necessary technological barriers. But not all subject matter is equally easy to teach, with programming being a primary example.

One of the ways to lighten the complexity required to teach kids coding online, is through using block-based visual editors. Snap, Scratch, and Blockly  are the most popular choices – depending on age and experience. 

As you might guess, visual editors on their own are often not enough. So the most effective programs for teaching any kid to code online – regardless of experience or aptitude – are ones that:

  • Scaffold the subject material for students
  • Gamify the learning experience
  • And give teachers the tools to track every step

How do virtual coding classes for kids work? 

Virtual coding classes for kids can be managed in a number of ways. The most popular format is to arrange online groups that meet collectively for remote frontal teaching lessons, and then continue to practice on their own. A lot depends on the functionality of the learning platform. Does it encourage students to collaborate? Does it allow faster students to go at their own pace and provide structured support for students who need it? Does it enable teachers to track and monitor where individual students are getting stuck so they can provide differentiated instruction? For classes that use a virtual learning platform but meet in a physical setting, these  functional capabilities are still important, but slightly easier to manage in the hands of an adept teacher.
