At BIA, we are excited to provide our students with Lenovo N22 laptops running Windows10. Each student in grades 2nd - 7th have their own laptop, while in grades K - 1st share a laptop for every two students. We also run web-based coding programs such as Scratch and Tynker.

The Scratch coding platform allows students to program their own interactive stories or games.

Students at BIA can program their own interactive stories, games, and animations, and can additionally share their creations with others in the online community.

Tynker is a complete learning system that teaches kids to code.

Students, starting as early as Kindergarten, begin experimenting with visual blocks, then progress to JavaScript and Python as they design games, build apps, and make incredible projects.

Moving Forward

Looking forward, BIA plans to add several classroom sets of iPads to further enhance the coding offerings K-8. For example, once students progress through web-based Tynker and Scratch on their laptops, teachers will be able to offer even more advanced coding curriculum to students, including access to the Everyone Can Code curriculum, Codecademy, and Kodable.
