“Code the Future” is a project which will help almost 20,000 pupils of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade of primary schools in small towns learn basics of programming and develop digital skills in practice.
This is an initiative of the Orange Foundation and the Coding Masters Association. The organisations manage it together within 9 regional projects, co-funded by the Digital Poland Operational Programme.
Classes are held at 222 public schools in rural and rural-urban communes of the following voivodeships: Lower Silesia, Kuyavia-Pomerania, Łódź region, Pomerania, Silesia, Warmia-Masuria and Western Pomerania.
Outstanding people, training and equipment: the most important part of “Code the Future”
All this is possible with great commitment of the 1,200 wonderful teachers who take part in the training scheme concerning digital education in work with the youngest pupils. We have prepared face-to-face workshops for them, as well as webinars and mentoring programmes. Thus, they will be prepared to hold interesting classes and develop in their pupils competencies for the future.
The training is also open for 450 committed employees of culture centres, libraries and teachers' education centres. We will help them become ambassadors of the digital education in their communities and their workplace, so that they can join forces to build a digital education friendly environment in their communities.
We want to make sure that they can use their new knowledge in practice, so we deliver modern education sets to schools. The sets include robots, mechatronic elements, tablets for teachers and pupils designed to teach programming, as well as unplugged coding mats.
