Tools & Methods
Creative computing requires tools & methods of skill development. Our platform provides editors for multiple programming languages, domain names + web hosting, learning apps, publishing tools, course + challenge + badge + learning pathway creation tools & methods of personalized learning management.
All data created within personal learning projects is accessible and portable, even after graduation for alumni. Data portability allows you to take your website with you to a new host at any time, to download your Python projects, to manage your portfolio, to choose what you make visible and what you keep hidden, and to set your own open source or closed source Terms for project work.
Build learning resources across your district, across domains of study, across time.. and maintain access for both current and future learners. Courses, Challenges with mentor feedback loops, Badges with embedded evidence documenting skills, custom learning pathways sequencing skill development, creative project work and events aimed at spurring creativity. Its all inside your community learning repository.
Host live skill-based training events, hackathons, community engagement sessions and more! Sell tickets, manage registrations, email participants, and publish information pages for your community and the public to access as desired.
Create co-manager roles and assign custom permissions based on role individuals will serve in your district. Students, mentors, admin, teachers, alumni and guests can all serve custom roles ongoing, or during one-time events. Connected communities enable sharing of resources between districts, departments and schools.
Track community performance and engagement, and find popular trends in new learning offerings. Learning activity can be sorted and parsed based on date ranges, custom social groupings, and specific learning pathways with challenges and badge earning data tracked for each member of your community.
Our team builds custom tools and services based on need/value, collaborates on grants, and consults on various topics with partners. In the end, our platform is full service, and then some!

The people at kidOYO are not selling you a platform and disappearing, they are helping to enhance your classroom by becoming involved in all aspects from instruction to implementation to assessment and follow-up. Every coding teacher needs this. "[read more]

Middle School Coding Teacher, Plainview - Old Bethpage School District, New York
" I want to thank you and the kidOYO staff for your support during the past few months as my students and I took on a new and exciting coding experience. It was a joy to see a light go on in so many of my students as we all discovered a new skill and ran with it. The kidOYO program is amazing; its success clearly stems from the interaction and encouragement from your staff. Teaching coding "remotely" presents unique challenges, but the kids were so adaptable and willing to take risks. On a personal level, I had to work so hard just to keep a step ahead of the kids in class, but I loved every minute, and I am so proud of completing Level 1 Hatch! Now I know I can continue to guide and support the kids, even after the course finishes today. "
STELLAR Teacher, George Washington Elementary WHUFSD, New York
" I just wanted to let you know that I was blown away by today's session with (kidOYO's Mentor) Doug! The students in this club come from all different levels of learning and each one was able to complete the Iron Man Sprite. His teaching abilitiy and mannerism with the students should be highly commended. At the end of a very long day to have 21 sixth graders sitting and engadged in their task is a very impressive feat! I can't wait until we scheduled another session!!! "
Middle School Teacher, East Meadow School District, New York
" I just want to thank you first for all your help with kidOYO over the years. It has made the transition to online learning extremely smooth for me and my students. ... Thanks again with everything with kidOYO, it's making online learning so much easier for me and my students (I also have more students than ever before earning Hatch! Mastery Badges)! "
Dr. Rory Manning
Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction and Administration, Harborfields, NY
" ... In less than a year of implementation, the kidOYO platform [OYOclass] has empowered our students to take ownership of their learning. Once empowered, our students have exhibited new levels of confidence in their abilities across all content areas resulting in significant academic gains. This was an outcome we never would have expected and I would understand if it sounds unbelievable to those on the outside. We welcome any district officials to come see for themselves. Just give us a call! "[read more]
Principal, Syosset, NY
" Schools today must embrace the role of augmented intelligence in our students’ lives and prepare them for a socio-economic future that looks vastly different from the past by ensuring that all students develop a blend of skills including creativity, compassion, and complex reasoning ...
