The CoderZ online learning environment uses virtual robots to enhance K-12 STEM education and advance the gamification of learning in a scalable, affordable way
May 10, 2017 Derry, NH – Intelitek, a global leader in comprehensive technology learning solutions, has announced the official launch of CoderZ, an online learning environment that empowers students, worldwide to learn how to program virtual and real robots within the STEM pathways.
Discovering innovative ways to engage today and tomorrow’s generations of learners in STEM-related fields becomes a bigger challenge everyday. “Robotics is a great way to introduce STEM into the classroom. While traditional robotics programs require a large upfront investment in equipment and teacher training, CoderZ delivers robotics, coding, and STEM to every student through a cyber-robot learning environment that is scalable, affordable, and accessible.” says Oren Elias, General Manager of CoderZ at Intelitek
CoderZ is also now compatible with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 so students can experience how their code is put into action using a robot. LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 enables students to build, program, and test their solutions based on real-life robotics technology.
CoderZ enables students to program their own cyber-robot while acquiring 21st-century skills. Exciting, built-in gamified missions motivate kids to accomplish challenges to acquire new skills and knowledge. Starting with a friendly drag-and-drop visual editor, kids can progress to code their virtual robot using text-based programming languages, regardless of their prior coding experience.
CoderZ is browser-based, meaning that kids can code their cyber-robot anytime, anywhere, inside or outside the classroom, supporting new teaching concepts including flipped classrooms. The learning environment also provides class management tools for teachers, coaches, and mentors, to track each student’s progress and activity in real time.
Intelitek offers teacher training through Professional Development workshops, specialized STEM webinars, and integrated curriculum materials. CoderZ is delivered with classroom curricula that be used either self-paced or teacher-led. The Product and supporting materials are available both in English and Spanish. The Company is offering a 14-day free trial of its CoderZ learning environment available at goCoderZ.com.
CoderZ is a scalable and effective way for every student to experience the world of STEM and robotics to prepare for the challenges of the 21st century. This provides an equal opportunity for kids to acquire problem-solving skills and develop computational and critical thinking.
