2019: Digital skills for all

The Cyprus Computer Society (CCS) for the forth time was the national partner for the ALL Digital Week in Cyprus.

Following up the success of the previous years, theĀ  workshop “Coding our future” was organized once again in order to engage primary school children in gaining coding skills.

The workshop was offered to Primary school children and, depending on the age, the following workshops took place:

  • 1st and 2nd grade: Introduction to coding with the use of “Run Marco” and “Robot mouse”
  • 3rd and 4th grade: Introduction to coding through interactive games “” and “Lego WeDo”
  • 4th – 6th grade: Introduction to code writing with the use of “Scratch and “MeetEdison”

This year the workshop took place at the Primary Schools directly unlike the previous years where the students had to visit the CCS premises in Nicosia. This change gave the opportunity to students from remote areas to get involved and learn more about coding and expand their digital skills.

Together with their partners, CCS involved 625 people in the ALL DIGITAL Week events.
