Our Experience

My kids were familiar with the scratch program and the Raspberry Pi (a class is offered teaching about how to use the Pi) going into bitWise. We joined hoping to learn more about coding, programming and more. My kids were not disappointed. Although my oldest son already can navigate through Scratch and the Pi easily, my eleven and nine-year olds learned a lot with the programs on bitWise academy. My son taught himself a few years ago but my other son and daughter were able to catch up to his skill level using bitWise. Everyone learns differently. If your child is a self-learner, buy a Pi and let him explore. If your child tends to do well visually seeing step-by-step how to do things then bitWise is for you. It is simple, easy to understand and easy to follow. 

The only difficult aspect is the fact that the audio is a computer so it is hard to understand at times and oftentimes pronounces words incorrectly, similar to a GPS that doesn't know how to correctly pronounce a street name because phonetically, it just does not work. Although I love computers and appreciate how AI is improving our lives, there is much to be said about good old-fashioned human interaction. A human voice-over would have been easier to understand. Other than that, the program is an excellent resource for kids and teens wanting to get into programming or coding. 




The lessons are include many aspects with many activities to complete with each one. 


Hands-down, my kids favorite course was Fundamentals of Art. They loved it. It breaks down basic art concepts that can be used for computer programming. 



Overall, I recommend this program for homeschoolers all across the US. And, at this time, they are offering a yearly subscription for half the price!

The best tutors performed a quick test of the syllabus or module curriculum to understand where the student needed help and what they were more comfortable with. klasstutoring.com

The drone market has really exploded over the past two years, so with more models than ever before, just how do you go about selecting the right drone for you? or someone else if it is a gift for that matter? There are new models coming in from China as global trade continues to blossom and some of them are relatively cheap compared to the original giants among the radio-controlled modeling world. toy drones
