Computer Science, Computing, or ICT: different names for the same topic in all schools worldwide. Computational thinking is now a part of the CS curriculum, and it should be appropriately covered in all grades.
Teachers who want to teach coding and/or robotics will be able to understand the importance of graded lesson plans and resources. The curriculum must follow a spiral, project-based approach based on the age and school grade of the students.
They will learn how to choose coding tools and educational robots based on the time available per week, the students' existing skills, and the current trends in CS education.
The Digital Kids and Digital Teens curriculum is field-tested in more than 50 countries. The feedback we have received from teachers and students is integrated into the second edition of the series. Customized editions of the material are approved and used by Ministries of Education worldwide for the subject of Computing and ICT.
