      Learning Tools

      At Computhink, our teaching approach is enquiry based and our students are encouraged to think deeper and ask questions about what they are learning, and why they are learning it.

      The best way to learn to program is to learn it the fun way! Students are taught scenarios and challenges that are age-appropriate and in topics they can relate to.

      1. Computhink Student Portal

      All Computhink Students enjoy the use of the Computhink Student Portal.  The Student Portal is similar to the SLS used by MOE schools and is Computhink’s proprietary system for our student’s learning needs, where students will log in every day, and find notes, exercises, short videos, and video recordings explaining concepts for the day.

      2. Safe and Welcoming Environment

      Students have the choice to attend their classes onsite. Online hybrid classes are available on request.

      Onsite Classes are conducted in our spacious classrooms in Computhink@ToaPayohLibrary.

      3. Fun Coding Platform

      Code Monkey accounts are provided (free) for students during the camp. This is where your child will have their own account, and where they will code their daily projects and challenges.

      4. Challenges and Assessments

      Students will be given coding challenges throughout the 2 days to test their understanding. Our lessons are enquiry based to help your child learn better.

      Students will be tested on their understanding via quizzes/ assignments/challenges to ensure they are following well.

      Here’s what your child will experience in the Elite Coder Certification Program:

      FAQs

      Item1

      What is the Elite Coder Certification Program

      Elite Coder is the first formalized assessment in Singapore issued by Singapore Science Centre Global and Computhink, in partnership with Flying Cape.
      The assessment is designed to map student’s mastery of coding fundamentals at 3 different levels – basic, intermediate, and advanced. The assessment has been developed based on CSTA K–12 Computer Science Standards, an internationally recognized set of standards outlining the skills and knowledge students need to grow and thrive in the digital world.
      Upon completing each assessment level, students will receive a scorecard indicating their level of proficiency and a e-certification awarded by Singapore Science Centre Global

      What is the CSTA Computer Science Standards?

      CSTA (Computer Science Teacher Association) standards are based on industry best practices, so students who learn to code using these standards will be better prepared for future careers in the digitalised world of tomorrow. By learning industry-standard coding practices at a young age, students will be better equipped to succeed in college, internships, and jobs in the technology industry.
      In summary, coding standards such as CSTA for K-12 students are important because they provide consistency, quality, collaboration, and industry relevance in coding practices. By following these standards, students can become better coders and more successful in their future careers.

      What is the Coding Platform used in the Elite Coder Program?

      The Elite Coder program uses the CodeMonkey platform. CodeMonkey is an online platform that teaches kids real coding languages like CoffeeScript and Python. Children and teenagers learn block-based and text-based coding through an engaging game-like environment.

      What are the entry level requirements for this program?

      Elite Coder is a 3-level certification program. Students will need to take the Basic, Intermediate and Advanced assessments before being awarded Certified Elite Coder certification. 

      Is there a time limit as to when your child must complete all 3 levels?

      There is no time limit on how long the student needs to take to complete the whole certification.
      However, it is advisable to avoid delaying your child’s certification completion for an extended period of time (exceeding one year) as this can disrupt their progress.

      What is the duration of each assessment?

      The assessment for all levels will take one hour. The assessment will be conducted at Computhink @ Toa Payoh Library.

      Do you provide a certificate upon completion of this course?

      Students who successfully complete the certification will get an e-certificate and a scorecard endorsed by the Singapore Science Centre.
