TYNKER

by Beth Johnson

Are you one of the families who has been excited to start your students learning computer coding?  Programming?  JavaScript?  Then you’ll be happy to hear that we have just purchased the use of Tynker for our students. Feel free to go and see what it’s all about at the Tynker website by clicking on the image, below:

This program is described as “The Easiest Way to Learn Programming,” and advertisements call out, “Learn to Code with Tynker!”  Tynker’s online course provides a complete learning system with interactive exercises, guided tutorials, fun creativity tools, puzzles and more to make programming fun. Whether students have worked with coding before, or are complete beginners, there is something for everyone.

 

Because coding or programming will be part of the new BC Education Plan in the Fall, we’re preparing to make Tynker available for our HCOS families. With Tynker, you can begin enjoying some of the amazing adventures to come through these new educational initiatives.
