Virtual 9-12 Programs
The CreationCamp program teaches students all of the Ontario coding expectations relevant to the classroom grade level. The sessions are live & virtual. In the sessions, professional creators (App developers, engineers & game-developers) working in the software industry, will teach students how to code applications, computer games & prototypes of real world technological innovations.
The program aims to introduce students to various engaging career pathways that utilize coding in their day to day professions. The CreationCamp program's pedagogical approach is centered around project based learning, 21st century skills and global competencies. Students will learn design thinking frameworks, entrepreneurial mindset, growth mindset and many other skills. Students will be brought through the experiential learning framework to build out their very own computer games and applications.
Use correct terminology to describe programming concepts; (focus on object oriented programing)
Describe the types of data that computers can process and store (e.g., numbers, text)
Explain the difference between constants and variables used in programming
Determine the expressions and instructions to use in a programming statement, taking into account the order of operations (e.g., precedence of arithmetic operators, assignment operators, and relational operators)
Identify situations in which decision and looping structures are required;
Describe the function of Boolean operators, comparison operators, and arithmetic operators
Use variables, expressions, and assignment statements to store and manipulate numbers and text in a program
Write a program that includes a decision structure for two or more choices
