Why learning to program?

Social challenge

Technology is more and more important in our lives. It is essential to allow everyone to understand the basics and give the opportunities.

Economic challenge

90% of jobs will soon require some level of digital skills.

Pedagogical challenge

"Everyone should learn how to program because it teaches you to think" Steve Jobs

Why CodeNPlay?

CodeNplay was born in 2017 because we experienced that in a world increasingly shaped by digital technologies, it becomes essential for each citizen to identify the challenges and seize the opportunities. The employment sector, but also in everyday life, today everything is modeled, quantified and facilitated by computer processes. Understanding how digital tools work, and therefore the programming bases behind them, becomes crucial in many respects: equal opportunities, job market, ethics, etc.

 

To support this digital revolution and allow everyone to take part in it, CodeNPlay's (NPO) mission is to educate our children in digital technology, by helping primary schools integrating a coding program and new technologies in their curriculum. We do this (1) by our extracurricular activities, (2) by training teachers and student teachers and (3) by the creation of a quality course program.

Why in primary school

Because many children are already immersed in these technologies, and it is essential to educate them in making an informed, creative and active use of the tools

Because it is a unique opportunity to introduce girls in this subject, before gender stereotypes take place.

Because at this age, the cognitive development of the child is enormous, and it is easier to learn a new way of thinking.
