cool things.

The Editor

Programming with blocks

The programming environment Blockly was created especially for beginners. With Blockly you can create programs in record time that animate pixels, create sounds or react to movement and buttons. You put a few blocks together and you can exchange messages with other cards. Learn how to retrieve data from the Internet and integrate it into your own programs.

Learning

Free course material

In addition to our teaching material “Achtung, Fertig, Code!” we have more than 20 exciting worksheets with tasks, additional tasks, information and explanations. In addition, numerous example programs are already available.

The documents can be  
downloaded free of charge 
and copied for teaching.

For schools

Workbook on Curriculum 21

Together with hep verlag, we have developed a workbook based on curriculum 21. The teaching material is suitable for teaching media and computer science as well as for the elective subject computer science at secondary level I. “Achtung, fertig, Code!” introduces step by step the basics of programming. The theory is visualized, practically explained and is always applied immediately.

Simple and clearly structured - with extensive illustrations.

Oxocard AT

The Oxocard was developed by the Bern-based startup OXON and is being tested at various schools. The Swiss Economic Forum (SEF) is a co-initiator of Oxocard (Version 1) and has launched an innovative pilot project with SEF.Kids Coding.

INFORMATION FOR PROSPECTIVE PROGRAMMERS

(YOUNG AND YOUNG-AT-HEART)

With this card you’ll learn the basics that every programmer needs to know. Once you’ve completed the course, you’ll be able to create color computer graphics, know how animations are structured, respond to button clicks, create and record sounds, and work with an accelerometer. You’ll also learn the basic principles of communication and use the WiFi module to retrieve weather data from the Internet, for example. As a highlight, the course includes a simple game that you can program yourself under guidance.

INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS

The teaching material and the Oxocard are based on the new contents of the subject Media and Computer Science in Curriculum 21, whereby we not only focus on the application, but also build up a basic understanding of computer technology. The autodidactic structure of the course encourages independent learning. We connect the virtual world with the physical world and also include topics from physics and technology. Extensive tasks and solutions are available, so that the preparation effort remains limited despite the rather demanding topic. We have spared no effort to use as little plastic as possible in order to offer the most resource-conserving concept possible. The Oxocard’s housing is therefore an environmentally friendly cardboard construction that is folded to achieve the necessary stability. In addition to the ecological aspect, this also means that the product can be produced in bulk at low cost, which means that it costs little more than a conventional printed teaching aid.

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS

Programming will become as important as reading and writing. With this card, the basic understanding of computer technology will be promoted and fears about technology will be reduced. Increasing automation will also require a basic understanding of machine programming in non-IT occupations, and this small computer is an easy and inexpensive way of getting started.
