The New Computing Curriculum

There’s programming in the new basic school curriculum in Ghana and teachers will be expected to teach this to children from kindergarten. This is quite a huge task. Learning to build digital projects is a key part of computer science education. We believe that students should learn a wider set of skills and competencies that will help them to harness the power of digital technologies as both creators and consumers

Ghana Code Club has put together a number of projects in the following five (5) focused areas to help teachers integrate our lessons during class and after school sessions

Programming
By the end of senior high school, students should be able to create a simple computer program.
Computing and Networks
By the end of high school, students should understand and be able to use the tools and devices commonly used to build digital projects.
Data
By the end of senior high school, students should be able to explain how we use computers to create, store, organize, and analyze data.
Technology and Society
By the end of senior high school, students should be able to explore the ways in which technology and society have mutually shaped each other.
Design
By the end of Senior high school, students should be able to apply design principles to the digital projects they create.

Making Teachers Confident in the New Curriculum

We’d like teachers to feel confident and excited about the new computing curriculum. Our sessions aim to demystify the new curriculum, explain key language and concepts and provide useful materials to use in and out of the classroom.

Our Promise

We promise to set teachers up for this challenge. Ghana Code Club is really excited about the change because it’s a great move toward making children think like engineers at an early age: solving problems, using logic, analyzing processes and creating rather than just consuming technology. These skills can be used to enrich other subjects too, like Maths, Science and English.

Project-Based and Gamification Workshops

Our workshops are never boring. Learning comes through structured projects and challenges, teachers learn from each other, debate and analyze other's code. Just like our Code Clubs, we will learn through doing and having fun.

Calling all primary teachers – please register your interest on the site! We can then figure out what sessions to deliver, and when.

About

The Ghana Code Club is an after-school program that teaches children computer programming skills. Children between ages 5-17 can join any of our coding programs from Schools, Community Centers and Libraries to learn to create computer games, animations, interactive arts, websites and mobile apps..
