DESCRIPTION

Learn Jelly offers coding-based classroom programs, which are standard and project-based for organizations serving elementary students. The student learning objectives of our programs the following:

Primary

  • Teach students how to visualize and retell text and academic concepts to improve their reading comprehension and learning.

Secondary

  • Improve students' critical thinking skills through a project-based activity.

  • Expose students to basic coding concepts and show how it can be used as a tool to accomplish their objectives.

Our staff will accomplish these objectives by ushering students through a fun and creative experience which requires students to use storytelling, art, and coding to create digital drawings and animations of stories based on academic concepts.

PROGRAM OPTIONS

Individual Work | Jelly Sandwich

Jelly Sandwich requires a student to transform a story into a digital animation. During the program, students are provided a story based on a content area and are then walked through the following activities:

1. READ STORY

2. DRAW STORY

3. ANIMATE DRAWING

4. PRESENT WORK

Group Work | Jelly Donut

Jelly Donut requires a team of students to create an animated movie. During the program, a team of 4 students, who are assigned the roles of Director, Storyboarder, Writer, and Programmer work to create a two minute animated movie using the following steps:

1. CREATE MOVIE SCRIPT

2. CREATE STORYBOARD

3. ANIMATE STORYBOARD

TIMELINE

Each program consists of eight 55 minute sessions which take place onsite.

REQUIREMENTS

We provide all materials except for the following:

  • Student Computers (Mac or Windows)

  • Internet

PRICING

A maximum of 20 students can particpate in each class.

As a pioneer working to secure a placement for CS into the elementary curriculum, Learn Jelly is just the resource I have been searching for! I am a 5th grade teacher who also trains teachers in my district to use various CS programs. My district is on board with bringing CS into every elementary classroom, but the resounding question is always, “When will we have time?” Integration is key. Your site offers an answer.

The Learn Jelly Professional Development program and Teacher Workshops were developed exclusively to address the needs and challenges of elementary educators. Whether they are new to implementing and/or teaching coding-based activities, or have experience, this is the right program for them. Our program is designed to provide participants with the knowledge, experience, and space to become comfortable with the implementation and use of coding as a tool to meet learning objectives, such as improving reading, learning, and thinking skills. Contact us at howdy@learnjelly.co for more information.

A POWERFUL AND FUN PROJECT-BASED LEARNING EXPERIENCE WHICH SUPPORTS STUDENTS' ACADEMIC SUCCESS.

The Learn Jelly's online platform is a standards-based solution which helps elementary students learn deeper and improve reading and critical thinking skills through the process of digitally drawing and animating stories based on content areas.

Our platform provides educators with an online library filled with stories based on 204 concepts from content areas such as math, science, and social studies which are written at various reading levels. Once educators find a story that matches their teaching objectives, they assign it to an individual or group of students. The platform then ushers students through a series of activities which allows them to transform the story into a digital drawing and animation using drawing tools and visual block coding.

The Learn Jelly platform leverages the power of visualization and retelling activities, which is a well-established reading comprehension instructional and assessment practice in elementary schools (Brown & Cambourne, 1990; Morrow, 1985). Additionally, the animation activities provide a fun way to introduce every student to Computer Science.


Our Process

1. Educator Chooses A Story For StudentS.

Platform Tools And Outcomes

  Storytelling

Storytelling

Deeper Learning - Stories allow students to feel and see the information, as well as factually understand it. As a result, the information is more likely to be imprinted on the brain in such a way that it sticks with the individual longer, with very little effort exerted on their part (Neuhauser, 1993, p.4).

  Drawing

Improved Reading Comprehension - Visualizing refers to our ability to create pictures in our heads based on text we read or words we hear. It is one of many skills that makes reading comprehension possible. This method is an ideal strategy to teach to young students who are beginning or struggling readers.

  Coding

Computer Science (CS) Exposure - The most important part of the computer science experience is its ability to encourage and support creative expression and problem solving. As Seymour Papert said more than 30 years ago, CS is about giving kids the opportunity to engage with powerful ideas.

Improved Critical Thinking Skills - Teaching coding helps young students learn important creativity, conceptualization, application, analysis, and evaluation skills which will position them well for success as they move through school and life.
