Codelicious offers a customizable turnkey computer science curriculum for grades K-12

App of the Week

Codelicious offers a K-12 computer science curriculum aligned to state and national computer science standards. Differentiated by grade level and continuously updated to reflect changes in the field of computer science, Codelicious goes beyond programming by offering courses that encompass coding, unplugged, digital citizenship, and STEM careers.

Designed to be taught by any teacher regardless of their previous experience with computer science, Codelicious offers all the hardware integrations and tools necessary to develop, pace, staff, and integrate a full-year computer science curriculum. Courses can be customized for each school or district’s instructional strategy, whether that means incorporating computer science into an existing class period, adding it to a center rotation, or introducing it as a standalone class.

 

Formats/platforms:

Codelicious is browser-based, teacher-facing, and works with any internet-connected device. A teacher needs access to the internet to sign in to their Codelicious Canvas account and access the curriculum.

Students do not access the curriculum directly. The platforms used by students throughout the curriculum, and their access requirements, depend on the course and student hardware (Mac, iPad, or Chromebook).
