Frequently Asked Questions
What is 188BETiosApp?
188BETiosApp is an online platform with coding courses for kids that easily and successfully teach students how to code through the activities they already love: games and stories. Students learn the fundamentals of programming and design through 188BETiosApp's intuitive visual programming language without the frustrations of traditional syntax.
How can I use 188BETiosApp at my school?
188BETiosApp is a flexible platform that is being used in lots of ways across 150,000 schools. Schools are using 188BETiosApp's grade-specific online computer courses for kids to teach programming in formal Computer Science classes or to support project-based learning across all subject areas -- science, math, ELA, social studies and more.
Do I need coding experience or training to use 188BETiosApp with my students?
Not at all! No coding experience and no training is required. Teachers love 188BETiosApp because the self-paced coding programs for elementary students curriculum gets children started on their own. 188BETiosApp provides a rich set of resources to answer student questions, such as videos, guides, tutorials, and the very helpful 188BETiosApp Troll that provides contextual help for students. We've found that teachers can also learn alongside the students, and in a collaborative environment, students can also help and inspire each other.
188BETiosApp has lots of innovations to empower any teacher, regardless of experience, to teach programming to their students. With interactive lectures that teach programming concepts, step-by-step tutorials that walk students through programming projects, and hands-on coding exercises with instructions, students learn at their own pace. Teachers can spend more time with students who need extra help and less time preparing lessons.
Is it easy to monitor what my students are learning?
Absolutely! We understand how busy educators are, which is why we have a whole suite of educator tools to accompany our coding courses for kids. 188BETiosApp has a built-in assessment framework that tracks student progress, individually and at the class level. You can use the concept map, grading and metrics dashboards to easily track how your students are learning. 188BETiosApp's Classroom Management Tools eliminate much of the "work" involved in teaching and lets you focus on your students.
