About Laredo:

In the dynamic landscape of Laredo Independent School District (LISD), a wave of innovation sweeps through the educational terrain, propelled by the promise of digital literacy for all. With a diverse student population exceeding 21,000 across 34 schools, LISD stands as a crucible for exploration, where the seeds of possibility are sown and nurtured.

Challenges Faced:

The road to educational transformation is fraught with challenges, and LISD’s journey was no exception. From securing funding to navigating curriculum integration, the path forward was marked by hurdles to overcome. Yet, LISD’s educators remained undeterred, their commitment to student success unwavering in the face of adversity.

Laredo ISD is Leading the Way in Technology through our partnership with CodeMonkey. Our dedicated educators are transforming the learning experiences of our students through innovative teaching practices that are gamified, engaging, and promote computational thinking to drive results!

Implementation of CodeMonkey:

In LISD’s classrooms, the winds of change began to blow with the introduction of CodeMonkey. Like a compass guiding students through the complexities of coding, CodeMonkey offered a gateway to digital literacy and computational thinking. LISD’s educators embraced this innovative tool, weaving it into the fabric of their curriculum to provide students with hands-on learning experiences.

Impact on Students and Teachers:

The ripple effects of CodeMonkey were felt throughout LISD, as students and teachers alike embraced the opportunities for growth and discovery. Through gamified challenges and interactive exercises, students honed their coding skills while developing critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. Teachers, empowered by the resources and support provided by CodeMonkey, witnessed firsthand the transformative impact of integrating coding into their classrooms.

We have noticed that all students who work with CodeMonkey develop a strong foundation of coding skills, and are motivated to compete in our district’s annual code-a-thon competition that occurs both at the campus level at the conclusion of the first semester, and then at the district level during our annual student technology expo.

Achievement of Goals:

As LISD charts its course towards educational excellence, the integration of CodeMonkey serves as a beacon of progress. The goal of equipping students with the skills necessary to thrive in an increasingly digital world is within reach, thanks to the dedication and innovation of LISD’s educators. With each success story and milestone achieved, LISD moves closer to realizing its vision of empowering students to reach their full potential.

In LISD, the journey towards digital literacy and computational thinking is a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration. As the district continues to pave the way for student success, the impact of CodeMonkey serves as a reminder of the transformative potential of educational technology in shaping the future of learning.

Do you have an experience to share?

We at CodeMonkey would like to hear your story and how coding in general, CodeMonkey in particular, helped your organization as a whole. We’d love to hear about the experience of students, teachers, school or district-level management. 

We would like to share these stories with others so they can be inspired to bring the gift of coding to their organizations. We’d like to show that both large and small organizations have their own unique story. There are so many ways to educate the younger generation!
