WELCOME TO LITTLE HACKERS!

Welcome to LITTLE HACKERS!

LITTLE HACKERS is a classroom intended for children who truly want to become proficient at programming. Programming is not only an important skill for society from now on, but programming is effective way to teach how to use their heads to solve problems and give shape to ideas.

While the lessons are conducted as mainly focusing on game production class is not only about children being able to program or make games but instead a major point of the class is to have “Thinking programmatically” become second nature for the children.

There is no best age to start programming but when interested there are children who are capable of displaying ability exceeding that of adults. Why not help these children who are interested in computers and making games get started?

FEATURE

COURSE

Course Introduction

Scratch Programming

Scratch

Through making games using Scratch, children can learn the fundamentals of programming. Children can smoothly start programming by arranging various colored blocks in a script to make games. For children who are new to programming, we recommend joining this course.

At LITTLE HACKERS we use Scratch in English instead of Japanese. Learning programming terms in English makes for an easy transition to other programming when children are ready to try another programming language.

  • Goals Study fundamental programming concepts
  • Grades 1st~6th
Go Programming

Go(Golang)

Golang is a new programming language designed by Google. General purpose high level programming language that runs on various devices including smartphone.

Easy to read children can make games with only a little bit of code, a simple challenge for children. Golang is also a fundamental used for large scale system development. Through working with Golang, children will build confidence in programming.

  • Goals Deepen understanding in authentic programming.
  • Grades 3rd~6th
Web Programming

Web Programming

Ruby on Railsを使ったWebプログラミングの実践を通して、プログラミングの理解を深めると共に、インターネットの仕組みを学びます。情報を発信するだけのホームページではなく、ブログを書くための簡単なシステムや、宿題を管理するシステムなど、身近なテーマをもとにしたインタラクティブなWebシステム作りに挑戦します。

Webプログラミングの授業で利用するのは、クックパッド、AirBNBのような人気サービスにも使われているWebフレームワークRuby on Railsです。スタートアップ企業でも好んで使われていて、おしゃれで格好いいイメージがあります。合理的で分かりやすいコードが書けるので、初心者が最初に取り組む言語としても優れています

  • Goals Webプログラミングができるようになる
  • Ages 6th Grade~Adult

VOICE
  • 先生1人対複数名で一斉に教えてもらうような受け身の進行ではなく、個々に合わせたレベルでそれぞれに指導してくださることに驚きました。体験の時だけのものかなと思っておりましたが、通常クラスでもそのスタイルが続いていて、おかげさまで娘のペースで楽しく無理なく続けられております。英語、日本語どちらの先生も優しく教えてくださるので、娘はリトルハッカーで学ぶことが大好きです。

    R.Nさん

  • 他の習い事はやらされる事が多かったのですが、リトルハッカーは毎回楽しみで、教室の日を指折り数えています。英語は苦手でしたが、簡単な言葉で根気強く指導して下さるのですこしづつ理解できる様になっているようです。

    Y. Kさん

  • 英語のままスクラッチを使い、英語のみで指導を受けることが、子供にこれほどスムーズに適応すると思わなかったので、魅力を感じています。
