Learning to Code by Breaking it Down: Lower and Middle School Students Enhance Problem-Solving Skills with Coding and Programming

Shipley places a strong emphasis on teaching computer science skills from the time students enter Lower School. But the goal is not to prepare all students to pursue computer science in college and beyond. Shipley helps students translate coding skills into valuable skills for all subject areas and life situations.

Students in Kindergarten through first grade are introduced to coding on iPads with Kodeble, an app offering an introduction to programming concepts and problem solving. Coding and programming integrate into the normal schedule and curriculum starting in fourth grade, in conjunction with Shipley’s one to one computing program.
