Why is Group Coding so much better?
Learning to code with a group of your peers is an engaging and exciting coding journey that is so much better than private tutoring!
#1 Clarify Difficult Questions
Many students might have the same question but are afraid to ask. Seeing other students’ code, group debugging helps students understand coding on a deeper level.
#4 Build Solid Teamwork Skills
Our students know how to work as a team to accomplish a goal. It’s an important soft skill that can benefit your child in any career they choose. Teamwork fosters creativity and boosts confidence.
#2 Develop Stronger Communication Skills
Group classes prepare students for work in a fast-paced digital world. Students will feel comfortable participating in an online setting and strengthen their visual, verbal, and written communication skills.
#5 Learn and Grow Faster Together
Kids have a special ability to motivate and challenge one another as peers. Their desire to learn and perform well can be significantly enhanced by their relationship with other students.
#3 Different Modes of Learning
Students learn by watching and teaching in class. We encourage interactivity and engagement to learn by modeling the teacher, by teaching other students, and by sharing their coding challenges.
#6 Engage with Peers Socially
Our student reviews mention “making new friends” as a top reason that students enjoy our classes. Kids engage with a diverse range of peers from around the world in a safe, monitored environment.
The Benefits of Group Coding
Why choose group coding over private tutoring?
Learn to code with a group of your peers for an engaging and exciting coding journey! Your child misses out on a unique learning opportunity when taking this journey alone. Consider the benefits of our group coding classes and see our available classes to get started.
#1 Questions are Clarified
Students have the experience of learning together by watching and helping others during class. Our coding programs encourage interactivity and engagement so that students can learn by modeling the teacher, teaching other students, and sharing their coding challenges during group debugging. Through discussing and explaining their code they refine their understanding of difficult concepts. Many students might have the same question but are afraid to ask. Breaking down the thought process of others often helps students understand the subject on a deeper level.
#2 Develop Strong Communication Skills
Group classes prepare students for work in a fast-paced digital world. They will strengthen their visual, verbal, and written communication skills faster than when working alone. Online learning helps students build a different skill set than learning in a traditional classroom. For example, students will gain the confidence to speak up and ask questions or feel comfortable raising their hands and asking for clarifications amidst the flow of an online class.
#3 Engaging Social Experience
Our student reviews mention “making new friends” as one of the top reasons students enjoy our classes. Kids get to interact with other students from different parts of the country and around the world in a safe, monitored environment. They will be learning and having fun at the same time. This sure beats being alone with your teacher! Many kids continue to take classes together through our curriculum and have a great time doing it with someone they know.
#4 Build Teamwork Skills
Our students know how to collaborate with others to accomplish a goal. It’s an important soft skill that can’t be taught without practice. At most companies, work is done by teams so working well with others can benefit your child in any career they choose. More importantly, working as a team fosters learning and creativity and can also boost confidence and motivation. When students can motivate each other, coding feels a lot less like a task and more like a privilege.
#5 Push Each Other to Learn and Grow
Kids have the ability to motivate and challenge one another to do better as peers that we don’t have as adults. On a peer level, kids learn how to work cooperatively, inspire creativity in one another, and are opened up to new ideas through projects and discussion. They can give and receive feedback, push one another, and get the social validation that keeps them motivated. Their desire to learn and perform well can be significantly enhanced by their relationship with other students.
