Lifelong Learning Programme With the support of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union

2nd Webinar - The Art of Coding


On Friday 2 October 2015, the Regional Directorate of Primary and Secondary Education in Western Greece and the Educational Radiotelevision co-organised a webinar to introduce the MARCH project and examine the Art of Coding in Greek.

In total, there were 70 participants with Greek nationality and 3 Hubs (connection knots) in the region of Western Greece (Junior high school of Palairos, Municipality of Aktion-Vonitsa; Regional Training Institution of Alexandroupoli; and Second Chance School of Prisons Agiou Stefanou, City of Patras).

The one-hour webinar "Making Science Real in Schools: The Art of Coding" outlined the goals of MARCH and presented the key findings of the scope-analysis conducted in the framework of the project, and focussed on the emerging trend of Coding and the best practices for the European Week of Code. As digital skills are a basic requirement to get ahead in the modern workplace, coding is definitely a great way to start!
