Project Description

“Coding for Inclusion” - CODINC - aimed at fostering education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) among disadvantaged youth through an inclusive educational approach, based on a peer-learning pedagogical method for formal and non-formal educational contexts in Europe. The CODINC project wanted children and youngsters not only to use digital tools but also to actively create technology and be inspired by taking a look behind the scenes of ICT. In this way, they improve their 21st-century skills like communication, collaboration, creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking and, as a lasting benefit, participate in digitalised society and influence it.

The objectives of the project were to:

  • Increase and improve teachers’ and trainers’ capacity to foster STEM education among disadvantaged youth through an inclusive educational approach based on peer-learning.
  • Empower disadvantaged young people in the acquisition and development of IT and collaborative competences, as well as problem-solving, self-confidence and creativity through a peer-learning training programme on coding.
  • Foster the development of a European CODINC learning community among different actors and across different Oi st;oxi toy sectors, both in formal and non-formal education and training, able to sustain the project’s results and amplify their impact.

The activities of the project included:

  • Production of the CODINC training Toolkit in the project languages
  • Online portal development
  • Piloting with secondary schools
  • Training primary school teachers
  • Peer-learning coding weeks 
  • Evaluation by target groups in 5 countries
  • Production of National Reports and Experimentation Report
