Coding and the Curriculum through the eyes of a CoderDojo Mentor – Junior Cert Programming and Coding Short Course

Presented by: Ben Chapman

Having spent 3 years mentoring at CoderDojos in Dublin, and having kept a keen eye on the new Junior Cert short course, I’ll be exploring how some of the content that CoderDojos have taught is relevant to the new Junior Cert curriculum. I’ll also review some of the benefits of teaching the Programming and Coding short course, from getting groups learning from each other to sparking the imagination of kids who haven’t yet found their outlet.
