In an increasingly technological world, understanding and developing digital language is a key part of every business’s marketing plan. Along with being a platform for web development Coding is also the foundation of the gaming industry – an industry which is now larger than the movie and music industries combined.
What You’ll Learn
Students will focus on building their understanding of the coding language Python, which is an entry-level coding. As many coding languages are similar in their logic and structure, students who learn Python will soon be able to move on to the coding languages C++ and C – the principle coding language used in the design of games. During the course, students will apply their understanding of coding to designing websites and games.
How You’ll Learn: Time to Shine
Each week for SBC Coding students will work together to participate in a research and presentation project. They will all have the opportunity to give presentations based on their own research, and participate in fun and collaborative class competitions.
What You’ll Take Away
By studying in a student-centred environment, and through a focus on developing 21st century skills, our Headington Oxford students can return home with an introductory understanding of the basics of coding in Python, better confidence in their communication and presentation skills and with greater motivation to apply these skills to their future learning.
