Coding Curriculum for Schools and Capacity Building for Teachers
The National Education Policy 2020 has outlined under its Section 4.23 Curricular Integration of Essential Subjects, Skills, and Capacities on collaboration and teamwork; problem solving and logical reasoning, coding and computational thinking included as a set of the skills to be developed by all students.
In response to this, we at Panchatantra Programming, believe that it is important to build the capacities of the teachers and support the schools with an easy to adopt, yet a strong Creative Coding curriculum that allows the children to build Computational Thinking and Coding skills with core focus on child-centric development. We would like to emphasize the importance of staying away from building a traditional structure that can limit the creativity and thinking potential.
Goal: To develop Communication, Coding, Creativity, Collaboration skills through integrated learning and bring innovation into education to help students develop 21st century skills.

Building Capacities of Educators: PP trains educators across different disciplines to leverage the use of interactive learning for children by enabling them with the necessary coding skills for making student learning interactive and fun.
Generally learning to code is restrictive and exists to teach programming as part of a Computer Science curriculum. The PP training programs go beyond that and provide an opportunity to the teachers to work with the teachers/students to showcase their creativity. Story-telling and Gamification is used as the use-case for developing the Creative Coding skills with four important focus areas: Creativity, Coding, Collaboration and Communication. PP provides mentoring and troubleshooting support during project work to address any challenges faced by the teachers in coding their projects.

Creative Coding project based Curriculum using MIT Scratch: Project based Coding Projects that build up the different concepts in Computational Thinking and Coding.
These can be used to start children with Grade 5/6 or bridge courses for any class that is starting first time with Coding.
Coding Curriculum for Python: The Python course enables children to make a shift from the block-based coding to Python programming and builds on the further to the logic building for the students.
Data Analytics using Python: Data analytics involves solving real-world problems using data. Teaching children how to analyze and interpret data helps develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. They learn to approach challenges systematically and find solutions through data-driven insights. Data analytics requires knowledge from different disciplines, including computer science, mathematics, and domain-specific areas. By engaging with Python for data analytics, children experience the interdisciplinary nature of solving problems.
Code-a-thons: PP provides a platform for students to participate in Theme-based Code-a-thons on a regular basis. The Code-a-thons enable children to Creatively express themselves using the Coding platform, and learn from ideation to applications along with coding methods to implement their own ideas.
Resources: These have been provided with accompanying Lesson Plans and Online tutorials to support the school to adopt the curriculum with ease.
