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
Computing and Networks
Technology and Society
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.
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.
