🤝 Emphasys Centre supports the initiative of the European Commission #EUCodeWeek2020 (10 – 25 October 2020).
🤖 The #EUCodeWeek is a grass-roots movement that celebrates creativity, problem solving and collaboration through programming and other tech activities. The idea is to make #programming more visible to ALL, including children, young people, adults and the elderly how to bring ideas to life through #coding, to demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn.
🤖 Emphasys Centre is one of the key partners in a European Erasmus+ SCHOOL project, titled “CODESKILLS4ROBOTICS: Promoting Coding & STEM Skills through Robotics: Supporting Primary Schools to Develop Inclusive Digital Strategies for All”! The CODESKILLS4ROBOTICS project pioneers to design an innovative programme which aims to introduce ‘coding and robotics’ to primary school students (9-12) by:
👉 Supporting schools to design their own DIGITALSKILLS@SCHOOL Strategy.
👉 Utilizing the extra-curricular time available in a constructive way to set up CODESKILLS4ROBOTICS Clubs in schools / educational institutions for students who voluntarily want to learn how to code.
👉 Creating Synergies between the school and various stakeholders such as ICT professionals, providers, NGOs, enterprises etc.
👉 Introducing the Open Badges as a method to validate and award the coding skills and competences acquired by both the teachers and the students.
👉 To support the pilot training implementation in schools and/or other educational organizations please sign the relevant Memorandum of Digital Commitment!
