Junior Coder App to Support 21st Century Skills

February 5, 2016

The Junior Coder app supports 21st century skill development by providing students exposure and practice with computer programming skills.  The app teaches basic analytical skills, logical thinking and problem solving.  Kids will start to think about problems and solutions and how to break up big task into smaller units.  Each programming concept is introduced in a new game giving students a chance to practice each skill on its own.
