Programming is a great way to teach a child problem-solving skills and introduce them to the inner workings of technology. And iOS highlights the usefulness of programming via the immediacy of the iPhone and iPad. In this course, Todd Perkins helps parents, mentors, and educators who are experienced with Objective-C and Xcode pass their coding skills on to a student. Each inquiry-oriented chapter consists of seven parts:
Hi, my name is Todd Perkins. Welcome to Teach Kids Programming with iOS. This course is somewhat unique on lynda.com. In that it's designed to teach teachers. While most courses are for students. This course guides you through the process of teaching a kid to program using objective C and SCO. Each chapter follows a particular structure. Each starts with a guide for the teacher, meant to be watched without the student.
Those movies include an overview of the concepts taught throughout the chapter, and move much faster than the rest of the movies. The second movie, shows the application that we'll be working on through most of the chapter. The third movie encourages you and your student to break the code by experimenting with different values for variables and the like. The fourth movie explains how the code works. In the fifth movie, I will elaborate a little bit and explain how to extend what we've done to accomplish additional tasks. Finally, the last two movies in each chapter are a challenge and a solution, respectively.
These enable the student to test the skills learned through the chapter to solve a specific problem. By the end of the course, your student will have seen a brief overview of the Objective-C language, and some examples of how code can be used to solve problems.
