Codementum is a platform established with the basic goal to teach coding to children from 8 to 16.
Using coding and algorithm, children acquire the 21st century skills like the ability to view problems from different perspectives to find solutions, to think in a systematical and creative way and to offer the shortest solutions. When students understand the logic of algorithm, they realize that everything occurs in a certain order and that essential things do not happen when there is no certain order. Coding is not only limited to computer sciences, but it is also very important in terms of interdisciplinary interaction.
Recognizing the importance of the skills of our age such as algorithmic thinking, analytical thinking, critical thinking, problem solving, design-oriented thinking many developed countries have made a radical change in their education systems. Countries such as the USA, the UK, France, Finland, Germany, South Korea and Israel have incorporated the Coding lesson into their curricula from the primary school level in order to teach coding since the early ages to be able grow individuals equipped with the 21st century skills.
The Codementum basically provides e-learning opportunities aiming to form a basis for advanced computer skills required at the primary and secondary education level, by improving the algorithmic/computational thinking skills of the students.
Codementum is a game-based online e-learning platform with completed Research-Development activities (age-based learning level etc.) which is used in private and public schools to teach algorithm and the actual coding language. It has a certain curriculum and student-teacher interaction opportunity.
National and international literature review was made when creating the Codementum. It has been evaluated several times thanks to the cooperation with schools and universities.
There are important points that we take into account when teaching our subjects in Codementum.
We have designed our platform which provides real and block coding opportunities. These two modes are integrated in Codementum. Smart Control can be used to keep track of the learning progress of the students.
With a team consisting of young people who are open to innovations and who love to make research, Codementum continues to work by constantly renewing itself.
