Description

#SuperCoders is an initiative by Orange for 9-13 year-olds currently run in 20 countries. The aim is to make children more aware of digital culture by offering them an easy and fun introduction to computer coding.

Beyond these coding workshops, #SuperCoders invites children to create games and animations in order to raise awareness about environmental protection. This challenge, open to girls and boys aged 6 to 16, took place in 2015 during COP21 and in 2016 during COP22.

Orange now develops with Magic Makers a new challenge based on the UN Sustainable Goals to further engage children in making the planet a better place for all. Our aim is to use coding and the digital tools to encourage children in becoming active citizen of the world of tomorrow. This new pedagogical tool will be presented at the conference in Bordeaux and tested during an hackathon at Cap Sciences.

Description

Is coding difficult? Definitely not for children and teachers related to Orange Foundation programmes. They are #SuperCoders! We will show you our experience from #SUPERCODERS programme launched by Orange Foundation. It's an educational model aimed at primary schools and for students aged between 9 and12 years old. By this programme children get know the basics of programming in Scratch during their classes at school. They may choose one of 5 different paths: mathematics and technology, nature, history, Polish language or music. During the entire cycle of classes, both schools and teachers may rely on our experts and Orange volunteers. During our presentation we will show you our model of education, our ways of involving schools, teachers and local leaders. We will share good practices , evaluate results and exhibit our next steps.

Description

Coding with Scratch to support the development of "digital family skills", digital inclusion and raise awareness on environmental issues At Orange Spain we have launched the project Supercoders not only to tech boys and girls to code in scratch, but also to develop the "digital family skills". In couples, parents and kits code together to create a videogame, but we also invite them to participate in the discussion about what better Internet might be for them. We also take into account social challenges: we include in our workshops disadvantaged children or with disabilities, or environmental challenges, coding for the planet and inviting participants to bring their old mobiles to recycle. Since 2014, more than 600 families have participated in our workshops being very enthusiastic about the possibilities that technology can bring them in terms of creativity and giving them the possibility to build digital knowledge to share with their children. That is the reason why we have made a partnership with the prestigious "University of Parents" in order to develop activities (based on coding and scratch) on order to reinforce the personal development of children: decision making, communication, ‚… and to enjoy the technology in family.

Description

Expérience des ateliers Scratch dans les écoles pour les enfants de 3ième (Scratch, Thymio) & Présentation des side-events dans le cadre de la conférence Scratch2017BDX Orange, in cooperation with all the regional directorates (including the Caribbean and the Reunion Island) organizes coding workshops #SuperCodeurs to accompany the youngest (9-14 years) in their digital life. More than 2000 volunteer employees in France, representing mainly Orange Labs and our Code-rooms developers' communities are gathered to coach children. This system, first associated with the EU Code-week, has been enriched since 2016 with #SuperCoders workshops for college students from the Priority Education Networks. These new courses are composed of 50% of discovery of the company and its trades and 50% of code training with Scratch and training in robotics with Thymio. The children thus discover an open learning mode and understand that they can master their digital environment. Some school drop-outs were able to find meaning in this experiment and even convinced their headmaster to organize #SuperCodeurs coding workshops in their schools where they wanted to become a junior coach with Orange employees.
