At Ucodemy, we normalize these resources for your class by bringing the best of them into a teacher recognized curriculum format.
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Coding is quickly joining the ranks of math and science when it comes to building essential skills. After working with organizations such as Code.org and companies like Microsoft to promote Hour of Code, EDUonGo has decided to launch Ucodemy, a learning platform that equips classrooms with coding curriculums, collaborative teaching tools and professional software coaching.
With Hour of Code events piquing students’ interest, Ucodemy provides schools a solution that sustains student engagement with coding and advances their knowledge in computer science. By adding curriculum and coaches to the solution, Ucodemy will make it easy for teachers and administrators to adopt coding in their school.
There is a predicted shortage of around 1 million qualified computer science professionals by 2020; there is also an increasing need for resources that help teachers deliver computer science in classrooms. Arkansas has gone as far as to declare a state of emergency regarding the need for coding in their schools, and 25 states now include computer science courses as a requirement for high school graduation.
Ucodemy provides teachers and administrators downloadable curriculum resources; the same resources can be modified by using Ucodemy’s collaborative teaching tools. As most teachers do not have a background in computer science, Ucodemy provides outside, around-the-clock coaching support. Teachers can also use Ucodemy to gain knowledge in the field of computer science.
“When it comes to finding the best fit for your school, the sheer number of coding resources is overwhelming,” says Jason Rukman, Principal of Ucodemy. “At Ucodemy, we normalize these resources for your class by bringing the best of them into a teacher recognized curriculum format. You don’t have to assemble this curriculum yourself—we provide it all in one place.”
