Englewood Computer Science Scope and Sequence



Coding and APP Development

Kodu Game Creation
Kodu is a new visual programming language made specifically for creating games. It is designed to be accessible for children and enjoyable for anyone. The programming environment runs on the Xbox, allowing rapid design iteration using only a game controller for input.

Scratch Animation and Game Creator
With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

MIT APP Inventor
Need something more advanced?

App Inventor for Android is an application originally provided by Google, and now maintained by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

It allows anyone familiar with computer programming to create software applications for the Android operating system (OS). It uses a graphical interface, very similar to Scratch and the StarLogo TNG user interface, that allows users to drag-and-drop visual objects to create an application that can run on the Android system, which runs on many mobile devices.
