European Union CODE WEEK

No one can deny that the world has been affected by the rapid advances in technology and this has had a significant impact on our lives, not only on how we work, shop, communicate, and travel but also on how we need to prepare our students to cope with these changes and also succeed.  In order to make sense of this ever-changing world it is important that students develop an understanding of how technology works and that they have the opportunity to develop the skills and abilities necessary to adapt to this new era.

For this reason, once again Laude Fontenebro School are embracing Codeweek EU for the third year in order to raise the importance of coding and coding skills amongst our students.  Learning to code helps us to make sense of how things work, explore ideas and make things, for both work and play. What’s more it helps us to unleash our creativity and work collaboratively with wonderful people both near us and all over the world.

Between 9th – 20th October students in Primary and Secondary have been and will be  participating in engaging coding activities in their ICT (Primary) and Technology (Secondary) classes to develop their coding skills.   Through these activities Laude Fontenebro will be playing its part in promoting excellence in coding literacy for the next generation in a European Union wide initiative.
