Other Decks in Education


  1. CoderDojo, the volunteer led movement of free coding clubs for

    young people aged 7 to 17
  2. Where it all started In June 2011 the first CoderDojo

    took place in County Cork, Ireland, ran by co-founders Bill Liao & James Whelton Demand was massive and the movement spread rapidly around the world from the West Coast of America to Japan and Australia!
  3. So What is a Dojo? At Dojos young people learn

    how to hack, code, build websites, apps, games and more all in a fun, social and collaborative environment all for free! Children are mentored by volunteers passionate about children being given the opportunity to learn code. Emphasis is put on peer to peer mentoring & open source.
  4. Why CoderDojo? Industry Globally there is a massive shortage of

    programmers to fill thousands of vacant jobs. This issue affects every industry because technology is transforming how every industry communicates & collaborates. Education Currently Code education is not readily accessible for children. Learning code also teaches creative and logical problem solving skills to young people skills necessary for the 21st Century! Society Theres a major gender imbalance within the technology sector but also a lack of community, recognition & platform for young coders. CoderDojo turns coding into a social hobby for young people!
