Professional Development

Teachers can use this curriculum to further their own education and professional development to maintain their professional credentials and expand their skill set.

Progress Tracking

Tracking progress is one of the most important tasks for schools and teachers to keep them informed about the performance of their system and give them the insight and ability to make adjustments and thrive.

Cost Effective

Hiring a true Computer Science professional to teach CS to students is almost always cost-prohibitive. However, with Live Oak you get a whole team of CS specialists to teach your students.

Students

Prior to attending the Live Oak game development course, I had zero experience in programming. Live Oak made programming easy to understand and built up my confidence to continue developing this new skill.

Learn through Code

We teach multiple interdisciplinary skills through game design, web design, and computer science principles. Students want exciting, relevant, challenging CS projects. Students can learn at their own pace, rewind the instructor, and know they’re learning industry relevant materials.

Live Oak Computer Science works to empower both teachers and students through a cutting-edge curriculum featuring pertinent programming skillsets instilled through project based learning.

Teachers

I was so happy to see Live Oak offer such a fun class to introduce children to programming. My son had such a fun time building games and collaborating with the other students to solve problems.

Administrators

Live Oak CS provides students with a manifestation of their learning, which makes them more engaged and motivated. A textbook alone doesn't do that.

Don't break your budget

The state of Georgia will be requiring computer science classes for all high school students by 2024.  Few schools can actually hire a CS professional to teach CS classes…It’s cost prohibitive. Teachers can not be expected to take a few CS classes and become confident, qualified instructors of CS concepts. Asking teachers to retool for teaching CS is like asking teachers to become an architect or doctor in their free time to better instruct students; it’s not realistic. Hiring a full time CS professional to teach in-class can cost up to $100k annually; with Live Oak, principals can afford not only one professional tech instructor, but an entire team.
