About Codementum

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.

  • To teach students form algorithms and code the algorithms formed.
  • To teach students think analytically based on computer-like thinking.
  • To teach students do systematical calculations by taking the variables into account.
  • To improve the problem solving skills of students in order to help them be able to find the solution in the shortest possible way, are among the objectives of the platform.

There are important points that we take into account when teaching our subjects in Codementum.

  • We have sorted our subjects from the easiest to the most difficult, from the simplest to the most complex and from known to unknown.
  • We have created an effective, fun and game-based learning environment using background sound.
  • Thanks to our intelligent tracking system, we have developed a system that automatically assesses and scores the solutions found by the students.
  • We have set up the live support service to respond to any inquiries regarding 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.

Using Python and Javascript languages, which is one of the ideal coding languages for the beginners of coding lesson, our students can develop all kinds of software independent from the platform used. Thanks to Phyton and Javascript languages which is one of the most popular languages today with a syntax that is easy to write and understand, our students learn coding fondly.

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.
