So you want to teach to children to code? This book takes coding to a new level – giving you, and the children you teach, the skills you need to build your own iOS app. Taking you through every step of the process from planning to seeing your app in the Apple App Store, Doug Stitcher makes teaching coding for the real world as easy as it can be.
Simple instructions and clear screenshots will help you plan engaging lessons and the motivation of producing a real-life app will keep the pupils enthused throughout the process. All of the screenshots can be downloaded using the QR codes provided so you can project or print them.
‘Teaching Your Kids How to Build An App for Your School’ is the only coding book for teachers covering coding in such depth but with such simplicity and before you know it, your class will have designed, produced and submitted their own iOS app.
– One Apple computer (as cheap as £349 from eBay!)
