LEAD Launches Mobile-Based Coding And Computational Skills Program
The CCS program is a mobile-friendly program that revolutionises computer classes in schools and trains students with 21st-century skills at an early age.
Mumbai-based K-12 EdTech, LEAD, has announced the launch of India’s first mobile-based coding and computational skills (CCS) program for Classes 1 to 8 across all its 2,000+ partner affordable private schools in Tier-II cities and towns, and above.
Coding has always been a part of a classroom setup with students being trained in computer labs. But with schools closed due to lockdown, students can use the LEAD app on their mobile phones to attend the CCS program online and derive 100 per cent in-class experience from the comfort of their homes. This unique initiative fulfils LEAD's goal of making high-quality content and excellent learning affordable and accessible to every child in India.
The announcement is in line with the National Education Policy 2020 that underscores the importance of digital literacy and technology in schools, including training students in coding skills at early grade levels. The program aims to deliver a robust curriculum to help students improve critical thinking and other cognitive faculties, and enable them to explore new and exciting opportunities in their educational and career paths.
Teaching children coding and computation at an early age boosts their cognitive and reasoning skills, creative thinking, data analysis and visualisation, and problem-solving abilities. It also trains children in the use of computers safely and responsibly and improves academic competence and performance.
