You do not have to be an expert in programming to effectively implement the core curriculum of the subject of Computer Science in areas related to programming and to enable the development of students interested in this subject. You can also use the LEM platform by conducting classes in programming and operating databases during extracurricular activities, adult courses, professional development of employees, etc.
The award-winning, innovative LEM platform is a tool supporting individual and group programming learning. It is already used by tens of thousands of students and teachers. Some of the world’s largest municipal and regional digital education projects are based on the platform.
The platform includes programming and database management courses in professional programming languages, as well as extensive and easy-to-use tools for teachers, allowing them to effectively use the platform to work with students at school. The platform is aimed at young people aged approximately 14 to 114.
On the platform you will find C++, Python, SQL courses and a short introductory course to JAVA. You can use the courses when working with students at school. Standard courses will be especially useful for students interested in programming and for extracurricular activities. An ideal solution for Computer Science lessons is a special “Python for schools” course, based on the core curriculum of this subject, in the part related to programming. This course is better suited to the abilities of the average student. SQL and C ++ school courses are also under preparation.
Learning through practice
Learning on the LNU platform is about solving programming tasks in practice, i.e. writing real source code or asking questions to real databases. The platform interface includes a development environment that allows you to edit the source code file and run the written program. Each lesson consists of an introduction on a specific issue and problem that should be solved by writing a program or – in the case of the SQL language – by asking the appropriate database query.
If your students encounter difficulties in solving the problem, they can use the hint, and if it turns out to be insufficient – also the help of a consultant via the contact form. Teachers also have access to a special tab with an example, correct solution of the task in order to be able to better prepare for work with students and be able to help them.
Automatic evaluation of solutions
The written and launched solution is subject to immediate, fully automatic evaluation. The results are returned in a fraction of a second and presented in the tabs with the program output data, tests, descriptions of possible errors and tips. This allows you and your students to individually adjust the pace and duration of learning. Automatic evaluation of work will allow you to conduct classes with a large group of students very effectively, focusing on people who will have problems with solving individual tasks.
Tracking students’ work
Working with students will be facilitated by access to detailed statistics of their activity on the platform, statistics of individual lessons, and even a preview of the solutions to the tasks of each student. In the group management tab, you can flexibly add new people to the group, assign access to specific courses to individual students, and see their overall progress and current attendance.
To facilitate remote work, there is also a chat to which you can invite all group members. A group can have many administrators, so there are no obstacles for other teachers from your school to join the platform.
Learning how to program can be difficult, but with LEM it’s never boring! Gamification is built into the platform from the very beginning. Together with your students, gain new ranks, achievements, medals, and resources that can be useful in some tasks. Climb the school and individual rankings by having fun and competing with other schools. Take on challenging missions in which you need to demonstrate not only skills in various areas of computer science, but also logical thinking and a sense of humor …
