Program Description

Automation is taking over manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, banking, retail establishments, logistics, and many other areas by storm. Tasks which traditionally were done by people are now being done by machines. But machines think differently than people, and one needs to develop a specific mindset in order to deal with them successfully. This is called Computational Literacy.

You may have heard about Digital Literacy. This is a set of skills which includes things like using Internet and email, utilizing passwords, protecting your data, etc. Computational Literacy goes one step further. It is about using computers and computing to solve problems. Computational Literacy is a combination of simple logic, common sense, problem solving, attention to detail, and perseverance.

Computational Literacy can be learned, just like reading, writing, and using multiplication tables.

In this 80 hour training program, you develop computational skills by using a virtual robot to solve various simple tasks. In this way you learn essential skills such as how to identify repeating patterns and how to break complex problems into simpler ones. Upon completing the program, you have acquired the mindset and skills needed to successfully deal with automation and intelligent machines.

Skills learned include Computational thinking, Problem solving, Logic, Accuracy, Attention to detail, Perseverance, and Ability to overcome failure.

 

What Our Trainees Say About Us

One of my most engaging courses

“The Computational Literacy For Modern Careers course offered by NCLab was one of the most engaging courses I took. I particularly enjoyed how interactive the course was. I found myself thinking about the lessons in my free time, trying to walk through problems in my head so that I would be ready for more difficult material when I logged back in. It was the perfect balance of challenging and rewarding. NCLab made computer programming approachable, which was especially helpful for me, since I had very little prior experience with coding.”  — F.E.

I’m in control of my pace of learning.

“NCLab allows you to work at your own pace which makes learning easier. It also deals with a lot of hands-on learning and practicing writing code which has made me a more confident computer programmer. Overall NCLab is a great program.” — A.S.

It taught me the basics of algorithmic thinking.

“The course is set up in such a way that it’s actually enjoyable to progress through the sections and try to figure out the best way to do things. Despite learning so much, I always felt like I was playing a puzzle game rather than learning how to think like a computer.” — W.C.

I didn’t think learning could be fun until now.

“The methodology of this course taught me to code though a game that required me to bring the robot Karel home through a maze using programming principles. It was an incredibly fun and helpful way to learn the material.” – DD

The idea of coding used to give me a lot of anxiety.

“The NCLab Computational Literacy for Modern Careers course that I am currently taking has made me want to pursue a career in coding. The course goes in depth on what goes into the code instead of making the students memorize everything. The idea of coding used to give me a lot of anxiety, but now I am only wanting to learn more.” — K.A.
