Free Video Series: Preparing Your child to do True Coding
Looking for Students and Parents Who Want to Change the World
Hi, my name is Josh and I am super excited you are interested in the Free video series and eBook. I have been teaching technology and design for the last 15 years to thousands of students all over the world. When my nine year old son came home from school and said he wasn't learning how to code with the point-and-click tools I knew I had to help. So I started the Coding Academy.

When you click the green "I Want In" button and get started for free you are joining our movement to create a generation of makers. Below are some tips and strategies that will not only make them super excited to learn, but will also grow their skills in a multi-disciplinary approach.

Getting Started

In this episode, I show how I help teach students to become dreamers, thinkers, and doers by learning how to do true coding. My son started me on this journey when he told me how frustrated he was with the point and click coding tools and that they felt fake to him and that he wasn't learning how to do true coding.

Student Success

As a college professor that teaches programming and design at leading universities, I have seen many home school students come through my classes. I have seen the unique advantage homeschooling students have and I wanted to give you some secret tips and information that would be a big help to you.

Their Future

In this episode, I show the industry landscape. These are the same insights that have taken place in my college advising that has helped me get my technology students nearly 100% job placement within 6 months of graduation. I will show you how to get started with True Coding now. 

Look at what a homeschooling mom recently wrote to me.

Caroline's son started doing the projects in Game Design for Kids. This same type of spark is possible for your learners in the Coding Academy. Here is what she said: “I love what you are doing, Josh! I have been homeschooling my three kids for four years and have never seen anything like this! My nine-year-old son has been watching your videos with me and is so excited to create his own video game. He has been brainstorming ideas, sketching his characters and writing his plot all week.”

“As a homeschooling mom, it is so encouraging to watch his creativity on fire all prompted by your program. I can't thank you enough! My whole family is looking forward to learning more from your videos, eBook and club.”

Hi, it's Josh and Ruth!

We are so glad you stopped by. We are educational practitioners and specialists and partner with educational institutions to help bring transformational learning experiences where they matter most.

"We help teach students to be dreamers, thinkers and doers."

Firstly, we know that teaching is hard on multiple levels.
Getting the "light bulb" to turn on and stay on for students is not easy.

To make the challenges even more complex, the needs of the rapidly-changing marketplace make it a critical priority to help make our students real-world ready with marketable skills that they can plug in to a well-paying career. 

 Following are some of the companies my students have worked for:
"The future of the economy is in STEM,” says James Brown, the executive director of the STEM Education Coalition in Washington, D.C. “That’s where the jobs of tomorrow will be.” Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) support that assertion. Employment in occupations related to STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—is projected to grow to more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022.
Following are the seven secrets you will learn to help prepare your child for their future in the digital economy.

  •  Learn how to prepare your child to have the quality life you want them to have while developing the imperative skills they need to make that dream a reality. 
  •  Learn the creative and technical skills that directly prepare your child for the jobs of the future. 
  •  Learn how to take your child’s passion for games and technology and channel it into productive learning and marketable skills.
  •  Learn about the jobs of the future, their median salaries, and how to start your child on these career paths, today.
  •  Learn how to develop critical life-long learning skills and critical problem-solving skills by pursuing projects in the ideal vehicle, game design, to teach STEM and STREAM disciplines (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, Math).  
  •  Create an easy-to-implement strategy your child can use to develop patterns for independent thinking, confidence in their ability to solve problems through the free exercises and worksheets AND demystify the complexity of the technical tools and get started today with the tools used in the industry for free with the invaluable list of free game design tools for education
  •  Learn how to build and instill follow-through by doing fun, exciting, and challenging projects in technology

Joshua Lomelino, M.F.A.
Hi, I'm Josh! I have been in the technology and design industry for 20 years and have been equipping the next generation through teaching for the last 10 years. I live in music city, Nashville TN. It has been my privilege to help transform the lives of thousands of students worldwide.

After many years of research and development dedicated to helping students learn, I have developed truly unique methods and I have seen the massive results immediately and even 10 years later when my students have been launched into their careers. I recently went to learn more effective strategies for teaching and learning when I was a part of a summer research institute at Oxford University. 

Additionally, I'm a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and Illinois State University, holding four degrees including an A.A.S, B.S., M.A., and M.F.A, with specializations in design, music, and technology. I absolutely love helping people win big in life. I can't wait to help your students succeed.

My "Why"
I started Game Design for Kids to help transform the next generation by teaching kids creativity and problem-solving at a young age in order to be prepared for the creative and technical jobs of the future. I help students build the bridge from where they are now to their creative or technical job of the future. I help students close the gap from where they are to where they want to be. 
Ruth Reynard, PhD

Hi, I’m Ruth! I have enjoyed and still am enjoying a professional career that has kept me on the innovative side of things. I completed my master’s degree in ESL and Cultural Diversity and my PhD in Curriculum, Teaching and Learning at the Ontario Studies in Education, University of Toronto (OISE/UT). 

During that time, I studied under Jim Cummins, PhD, a global expert in bilingualism and Marlene Scardamelia, PhD, and Cark Bereiter, PhD, experts in knowledge building and applied learning. Through funding provided by LINC and HRDC, Canada, I created fully online learning platforms and programs for foreign-trained professionals and adult English language learners, still used across Canada. 

My "Why"
I have researched the benefits of new instructional and technology-rich learning designs. I have taught K-12 teachers in TN and IL and developed faculty training opportunities for career faculty here in the US and internationally. I am currently consulting with international universities in curriculum design and delivery and the uses of newer technology to support instruction. My focus continues to be on teacher and student success and I believe that technology can really help us in attaining those goals. Additionally, coding can support students in attaining skills they will need soon for employment and professional success. 

I am excited to work with you as we explore the most efficient and effective ways to help students develop high-level thinking, as well as creative and innovative design skills. Welcome to a potentially powerful partnership!
