Mangahigh Launch a Coding Product for Schools at BETT London 2019
Company announces new computer science vertical of business
London, UK: The EdTech company Mangahigh has today announced the official release of their brand new Mangahigh Coding product, to support teachers around the world to help develop coding literacy amongst their students. Originally known for their online game-based maths offering, Mangahigh has revealed that their new coding vertical covers a range of popular block and text based languages such as Scratch, Python and Blockly to help children develop a conceptual understanding of what computers can do and how to instruct them.
Mohit Midha, CEO and co-founder of Mangahigh, says “We are really excited to be launching our Coding Product at BETT 2019. As the world of STEM education evolves we’re thrilled to be venturing into this new universal language with our unique proposition that supports teachers around the world in their coding classrooms.”
Mark Dorling, Product Owner of Mangahigh Coding, explains “Mangahigh Coding has been built using academic research so that teachers can teach coding constructs and skills in a way that is underpinned by computational thinking. Through repeated exposure, we aim to prevent children from simply learning the answers but to grasp a resilient understanding of coding and its capabilities.”
As the subject of computer science is appearing more in schools and on the national curriculum, Mangahigh has developed Mangahigh Coding in an attempt to provide an EdTech resource that allows teachers to engage their students with curriculum aligned content that can be easily assessed and evaluated. The platform includes teaching precursor skills such as:
Reading code to predict outcomes and explaining what the code does
Analysing code by finding bugs
Evaluating code by comparing solutions
