The Family Coding initiative invites parents/guardians to participate in FREE coding sessions together with their children (age 8 – 11). During the workshop, adults will be assisted by their children to help discover ways in which they can learn to code through play!
Sessions are held at the Digital Literacy Centre, participating schools and other venues. Participants will experience an educational family oriented session introducing computational thinking concepts through hands on activities involving amongst others, the use of the OTPC tablet.
The scope of these family focused workshops is to introduce parents to coding concepts which may be alien to adults. During the workshop, adults will be assisted by their children whilst learning how to code. The sessions are free, but space is limited. Registration form: http://bit.ly/familycoding
The Directorate for Digital Literacy and Transversal Skills is also inviting volunteers who would like to help with the organisation and delivery of such coding sessions for adults and children. Training and resources will be provided. Interested adults can apply via: http://tinyurl.com/coachcode
