Jam Coding has expanded its services to help children gain access to educational resources during the coronavirus pandemic.
The children’s computer franchise started the year with the same resolutions it always does - “to deliver vital life skills to the next generation of digital citizens”. But in 2020 and 2021, it has been forced to adapt its services to better support the UK’s children and teachers.
In spring 2020, Jam Coding helped children access educational resources by introducing its virtual classroom initiative, with online coaches and cross-curricular lessons and activities. Attendees can take part from the comfort of their own homes, and families can even hire laptops from the franchise, if they don’t have their own tech equipment.
Jam Coding has increased the number of computer lessons in schools to give teachers extra time to support children who are struggling after lockdowns one and two.
Now, the franchise has gone one step further and is launching a brand-new Online Coding Club. Children between the ages of four and 11 will be able to take part in group sessions once a week. The company will deliver the classes via Zoom and appoint live code coaches to lead them.
Children who join the online club will have the chance to build their own computer game and take part in other code-related challenges. The franchise said,
“All our clubs are educational, interactive and fun and the online sessions will be no different.”
Jam Coding is proud to be providing a helping hand to schools across the UK at a time when accessing educational resources is difficult. The franchise recognises the obstacles facing teachers and parents as they work together to support their children, delivering high-quality classes over the internet.
