Coding is the art of telling a computer how to perform complex tasks. Once a person knows how to code, he/she can create virtual worlds within the computer where the only limit on what is possible is one’s imagination. The project wants to put this power into the hands and hearts of every citizen in Europe, as anyone can learn to code in a few hours one can pick up the basic skills and in a few weeks, he/she will be able to build useful applications and websites.
So the purpose of EDU-CODE is designed for helping adults to acquire basic knowledge of computer programming and promote an active and conscious usage of IT tools in households by the use of an innovative ‘learning path’ method based on the development of a multifunctional platform for adult coding education, that will host: a) training contents, b) interactive exercises for understanding theory; c) programming games (collection of games which simulate programming).
