    This unique add-on to the TeenCoder material books is designed for Android programming. Designed to be the second semester of Java programming, this book covers Android programming from managing screen layouts to creating applications. One of the best things about this kit is you don't even need an Android to learn the material; all you need is the simulator and you can run it on a Windows or Mac! ~ Stephen

    If you're looking for specific Java programming knowledge, this book is a good choice. No previous knowledge of programming is necessary. Within, you'll learn all about Java basics. Topics such as creating graphical applications, object-oriented programming, and much more are covered. This is the first semester course of a two-part programming kit, (Android programming being the second), and can be used for the AP Computer Science A exam. The website even has a page for test preparation using the Java programming course. The software is compatible with both Windows and Mac. ~ Stephen

    From the creators of the KidCoder and TeenCoder series comes this ultimate course in digital literacy! The goal of the program is to help middle-to-high-school students develop a foundational understanding of hardware, software, file management, Internet safety, and more.  The course is divided into two semesters (about 33 weeks) of material; the first covers basic concepts, including an introduction to types of hardware, software, and popular programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, Google Docs, and more. The second semester delves into more hands-on topics which include social media programs, basic Internet utilities, designing web pages, and creating simple programs.

      At the heart of the course is a simple online interface which tracks student progress and helps organize teachers. Two online access codes are sent out with each copy of the product: one for the student, and one for the teacher. The students have access to several tools for each lesson: Lesson Video, Text, and Quiz. The videos are key to understanding topics and are both animated and narrated to help both visual learners and students learning English as a second language. The automated quizzes ensure students have a good grasp of each concept before moving on and are automatically scored for every student and sent to the teacher for review. Teachers likewise have access to a Teacher Guide, a Quiz Answer Key, and Activity Solution Guides / Files, in addition to syllabi, activity overviews, and chapter walkthroughs. These resources are provided at the teacher’s leisure—each can be used by itself, left alone if deemed unnecessary, or integrated with the teacher’s own supplementary material.

      The full range of topics covered includes: Fundamentals of Computer Hardware / Software, Operating Systems, Computer Files, Computer Maintenance and Troubleshooting, Computer Networks, Search Engines, Computer Security, Word Processing, Spreadsheet Programs, Presentation Programs, Database Technology, Project Management, Digital Images, Internet Communications, Social Media, Creating Web Pages, Programming Concepts, Digital Logic, and Careers and Professional Skills.

      The course caters to group teaching as well; the online software allows teachers to track each student’s scores and progress individually. The program is also age-friendly, allowing multiple students of different middle-and-high-school ages to work together as one class. In addition, it is a moderately fast-paced course—the stated average workload amounts to roughly 3-5 hours of work per week over 33 weeks, but if this is too rigorous for students or you have younger kids in the class, the course is designed to be self-paced. If you are looking for a full-blown course on digital literacy that caters to a wide range of students, this is certainly one of the best! ~ Stephen

      Note: Requires a laptop or desktop with an internet connection and Microsoft Office (latest version recommended).
