Description

Road to {Code}

Are you ready to start your coding journey?

In partnership with Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada, Wriggle Jr. want you to come along and experience a fun and interactive day of coding. This event is designed to support primary schools with their integration of technology for teaching and learning.

“Creative thinking and problem-solving skills are critical to our children developing and achieving their potential. In particular, their ability to think critically and develop solutions in the digital world will be vital for their prospects in life. Digital technology is revolutionising our careers." - Minister for Education, Richard Bruton.

The Department of Education and Skills are currently considering implementing coding in primary school curriculum so, have you thought about how you might utilise coding in your own classroom?

Using various 'pitstops', we will have experts and educators on hand to demonstrate how coding can be introduced across the curriculum from art and geography to history and maths. Get 'hands-on' with technologies such as Sphero, Swift Playgrounds, Minecraft, micro:bit, Virtual Reality Headsets and lots more.

With our help, you will be on the road to coding in no time!
