In recent years there has been a huge increase in interest in the teaching and learning of computing both in and outside school. Parental involvement in learning activities in the home, particularly in the early years, is strongly associated with better learning outcomes. Parents are also a big influence on their children’s subject and career choice
However, a lot of Irish parents feel they don’t have the necessary skills and competencies in this area. They also currently feel that they lack information on STEM career options. This project focuses on empowering parents' personal relationship and competence with computing so that they, in turn, can support their children. Success will be achieved if there is increased confidence to continue activity in this area.
We have recently surveyed parents across Ireland to find out how they currently feel about computing. We have also started to pilot our workshops in schools around the country and will be conducting more in September and October 2018.
We will be posting more details soon but in the meantime email us if you or your school are interested in getting involved or are just interested in finding out more.
