Why we love Rodocodo
Rodocodo is the revolutionary fun game that helps teach primary school children how to code. From Reception to Year 6, it makes it fun and easy, removing all the complexity and frustration along the way. Pupils don’t realise they’re learning because to them it feels like they’re playing a game. With all the lesson plans already laid out and staff training that even the most technophobic teacher can understand, it saves time and effort, while offering instant class feedback. Plus as part of Rodocodo’s commitment to inclusivity, they’ve made a conscious effort to appeal to girls as well as boys.
The creator of Rodocodo, Chi Dire, designed it when he was trying to teach his own children to code. Along the way, he realised that although coding is now on the curriculum, many teachers don’t feel confident teaching it. Mainly because they haven’t had training, he had this to say on the partnership,
“I created Rodocodo because I wanted to teach my own two children how to code. Teaching them to code was actually a stealthy way of teaching them problem-solving skills and fostering a growth mindset. I really struggled to find existing software that did this in a fun and exciting way that didn’t need a lot of input from me. Crucially, I learnt there weren’t any programmes that made it easy for teachers. I visited schools across the country and realised it was often only children who had computers at home, or whose parents could pay for code club, who were able to learn coding. It’s my passion to change this and make it accessible to everyone through school. Although children are often glued to their screens (my own included) they are passive consumers. I want to empower them to be active creators. I want every child to be able to understand the digital world we now live in and to be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. I’m delighted to be able to further this goal by working with TrilbyTV.”
TrilbyTV Director, Ben Stanley told us why he is particularly excited about this new and exciting partnership,
Learning to code early and getting a grasp of computational thinking are both valuable skills to have, not just for computing, but also for life. Whatever you end up doing in your career, having some basic understanding of how things work can be a real benefit. That’s why we were keen to partner with someone like Chi and the team at Rodocodo to help get young people interested in learning to code and building those key skills as early as possible.
