About it

Web development will be one of the most in-demand skills in the next decade. With 50% of the global population using the internet on a daily basis, it makes sense that tech skills will keep growing in demand. The amount of people using the internet is only going to increase.

It is not GalactIQ’s goal to train primary school students to become programmers in the future but we know how important it is for them to start learning programming languages at an early age.

With web development for kids, you can turn their passion for their devices or computer games into a learning opportunity! Let’s look at some of the best reasons kids should learn to code.
 

1. It Gives Them Confidence

Starting something new can always be a challenge at any age. If we can overcome those challenges to succeed, it instills confidence and drive. Learning web development skills is like learning a new language. To succeed, you have to make mistakes. If you can learn from these mistakes, it makes you better at what you are doing.
 

2. They Learn Creativity

Being the master of your own project is always fun. You can create whatever you want to. Whether that’s an app or a game, or a website that provides something useful, there are endless chances to be creative when learning to code.

Website development for kids is a way for them to let their imagination run wild and come up with something new and exciting that benefits them and those around them.
 

3. They Learn Transferable Skills

The importance of web development skills for kids should not be underestimated when teaching them important life skills. The challenges they face when learning to code can help them learn resilience and the ability to think creatively. These are all skills that can be used for their other school work and help them to succeed.
 

4.Teaches Them Problem Solving

Many children learn by doing. There is a huge movement in education for project-based learning. This method of learning teaches children how to use the theory they listen to in class. If a child can actively use what they have learned for a project that excites them, they are much more likely to remember the skills.
 

5. Children Learn Communication Skills

Another of the important skills learning code teaches children is communication. They learn the art of communicating effectively. They have to instruct a computer very specifically in order for it to perform the required task. Coding teaches kids to be thorough and accurate.

  • Simple and effective

    "The step by step construction and coding instructions on galatIQ were simple and effective, ensuring student success regardless of their ability.  Along with the instructions, the online tutorials kept students engaged and encouraged them to grow in confidence over the course of the week.  The students particularly were inspired to be ambitious with their designs; creating unique and innovative robots. Overall, it is a brilliant experience!"

  • "A practical approach with a lot of creativity ..."

    My kids attended the galactIQ Academy for more than two years. During this period, Diego and Gabriel learned many cool things such as programming with Scratch, creating websites with Javascript and HTML, programming Lego based robots, among others. 

    The staff are kind, professional and always willing to help. The approach is hands on with a lot of creativity involved. It was a very pleasant and rewarding experience for my kids. I strongly recommended it for all kids (and adults) who want to develop programming and robotics skills while applying their creativity and enjoying an entertaining learning environment.

  • "...the lesson was so well scaffolded..."

    We used the first episode in the robotics series and our students thoroughly enjoyed the lesson.  The instructions were comprehensive for both the students and the teachers and the children could follow them to build their individual rover and were thrilled to see that the commands they set made the rover move.  As teachers, we valued the fact that the lesson was so well scaffolded and it included opportunities for discussion as well as for practising digital skills.  We can see the potential of this educational solution and how it could complement a primary school’s curriculum.

  • It's easy and fun

    "Galactiq is the perfect way to learn and teach coding and robotics to younger kids, even when having minimal to no coding experience yourself. Before each class, I go over today's lesson to gain an understanding of today's targets and goals. With hands-on information solely available for teachers, you can use Galactiq as a manual to learn everything needed to teach the class."

  • Impressive!

    "The video game development episodes are broken down into manageable steps, which allowed all the children in my class to develop a functioning, playable game. What really impressed me though, were the opportunities to experiment with the code; allowing my class to create a truly unique game. I can’t believe how quick we went from zero to hero!"

  • A fantastic tool for teachers

    "Galactiq is a fantastic tool for teachers. It helps manage the flow of the lesson, get an overview of how students are doing, encourages student participation and collaboration. It is very comfortable to teach using Galactiq!"

Brain

Media Literacy

Behaviour, safety and understanding
A 'must' for all kids in primary schools. Students will learn to recognise the complex mechanisms of the online environment they grow surrounded with. Through debating and investigating your class will fully understand the online world.

Robotics

Learning engineering is key
By teaching engineering and robotics to kids at an early age, you are furnishing them with a foundational skill set that could become essential to them in the future.

Game Development

Plan, design, develop and test
The video game creation process includes planning, designing, programming, testing, and launching a game. A complete digital creative process that reinforces the confidence and programming skills of your students.

Digital Creativity

Where they expand their creative horizons
We want our students not only to understand the rudiments and fundamentals of technology, at galactIQ we also aim at making primary school students creative with the tools we learn to use.
