🌱 Let students flourish, digitally

With Mindjoy, schools can enable teachers to focus on what they love- helping students thrive. We take care of the planning, organising, marking and reporting for learning to coding.

Our Approach πŸ’‘

More than coding, learn real skills that empower the next generation of creators, developers and makers who can build a future where your humanity can flourish.

What is Project Based Learning and why is it important?

Students explore new coding concepts by completing projects that they relate to like coding art, building games and coding AI. This makes learning more fun, engaging and meaningful for the kids.All our projects involve student choice and provide opportunities for reflection, feedback and revision.

What is a Mastery-based Approach?

The projects build on skills incrementally. For the kids to move forward to the next task, they first have to demonstrate an understanding of the specific concepts and skills. Coaches use Concept-Checking Questions and other methods to screen for understanding.

What is Hard Fun?

Hard Fun is when a task is enjoyable because it challenges you. We want kids to learn that struggle is not a bad thing; if things are too easy, we don't actually learn.With Mindjoy, kids develop confidence in their own capacity to solve problems, which is why sessions are facilitated by our coaching model (at Mindjoy there is no teaching).
