You’ve heard about Pitsco Education’s
wearable tech, Code Cube™, and that it’s a
great way to get your students coding. You
hop on the website and visit Pitsco.com/Code-Cube-Single-Kit and notice – hey, Pitsco has
an e-learning course for the Code Cube. Your
interest is piqued. Just how is the e-learning
course comparable to a face-to-face session?
Let’s examine a few of the aspects.
Complete at your pace: We’ve all been
there. You participate in a professional
development session where you need just a
little more time to work on understanding the
topic. Or, you were on the other side of the
spectrum – the topic is familiar, and you’re
ready to move on. But, because you’re there in
a group and support the other attendees, you
all move at the same pace. With e-learning
courses, YOU set the pace. You want to do
a little each day during your prep period?
Awesome! You want to knock it out in one
day? Sweet! It’s up to you. Our platform will
keep track of what you’ve completed, so
whether you leave for a day or an hour, we’ll
bring you back where you left off!
Wait, I forgot. How do I. . . ? The
beginning of the school year is often an
overload of information. You’re frontloaded
with so many different topics. But you don’t
apply them all right away – we all know what
happens then. You forget. And that’s OK. You
might not use Code Cube right away with
your class. That means you can complete the
e-learning course when you first purchase
your Code Cube and refresh the knowledge
before you implement. Or, you can put off
the e-learning course until you’re ready to
teach Code Cube to your students. Either way,
you have the tools at your fingertips for a
Hands-on learning: You know that
hands-on experience is crucial to learning,
and you integrate it into your lessons.
Our e-learning course provides plenty
of opportunities to practice what you’re
learning. We’ll walk you through the basics
of programming Code Cube, and you’ll be
displaying images, implementing conditional
statements, and utilizing loops like a pro in
no time. Plus, the activities you do will be the
same ones your students go through, giving
you a head start on your lesson plans.
Build confidence with coding: For some
of us, coding is a little daunting. Even with
Code Cube’s easy-to-use coding platform,
jumping in can be a little scary. We’ve got you
covered. Our Code Cube e-learning course
takes you through the basics of coding as
well as gives you plenty of opportunities to
practice and explore. We talk about tips and
strategies to help you teach coding as well as
material management and being a successful
Comfort of your home: You want to
complete the course in your pajamas? Go for it.
You want to do the course work on a beach in
Hawaii? Cool! Do it! As long as you have your
device and a Wi-Fi connection, you’re good!
(For the hands-on portion, you will need your
Code Cube and a device on which to program).
Support: Our relationship with you is
paramount at Pitsco Education. That means
whether you complete the e-learning course
or we conduct a face-to-face workshop,
you’ll receive the exact same support. During
the course, you’ll be in contact with a Pitsco
facilitator who can answer questions, share
ideas, or troubleshoot with you.
But wait, there’s more!
