I just started teaching coding in GZ China, it is not a rich area as you saw on TV, we are a learning centre providing after class activities for kids while their parents have to work till late to collect them.
As we don't have any computers for kids to use, I can only provide unplugged coding activities.
In my last lesson, I asked kids to write down the procedure of make a call to mom from a smartwatch. Most of the kids (age 8-11) were able to accomplish the task, some were even able to write the procedure in symbols.
There was a boy much older (age 14) he didn't write down any procedure but he memorize all the numbers of his families and wrote them down.
I was told he is autistic and I have no idea how to teach him.
Can anyone here give me some idea?
