Improving computing confidence in parents/guardians through family creative-computing workshops
OurKidsCode is supported by the SFI Discover Programme
SFI Discover funding supports projects that encourage people of all ages and from all walks of life to be informed, inspired and involved in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Our current research explores how best to
- design, develop and deliver a new practical workshop model in creative computing which will delight and engage families
- improve confidence in parents/educators using these workshops with support
- create and disseminate this model packaged in a toolkit ready for other parents as well as training providers and workshop facilitators to use
The project will be evaluated for its effect on building the confidence in participating parents/guardians and the design and resources will be created as a open educational resource.
