This workshop will allow the teachers to have hands-on experience of learning coding, to understand the ease of delivering a typical coding lesson, how to monitor students’ progress and help weaker students level up their skills. This will also be a platform to discuss why coding is a critical skill in the 21st Century and to understand why Coding Adventure is one of the most effective gaming tool for teaching coding. Students undergoing Coding Adventure are intrinsically motivated to learn, and they progress to acquire the coding skills and develop confidence to create their own set of challenges in a game. Hence, the students will also apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to create their own unique solutions.
