Among the topics tackled by the project were ICT, new technologies and digital competencies which included coding and programming. Also new innovative curricula and educational methods were addressed as well as development of training courses.
The primary target group included pupils who were directly interested in coding and individuals who were willing to learn, had a tendency to code, knew a programming language, or wanted to learn how to code. This group comprised students, teachers, and other adults.
The 'Code is Loading' project stands out for its innovative approach as an online coding platform with social media features for students and users. Students showcased their software development progress in various coding languages while learning, receiving likes and comments. Users engaged with experts through instant messaging, collaborated on international software projects, and participated in platform competitions, boosting motivation for coding projects. They also served as volunteer coding trainers to enrich platform content, creating a network of coders.
The developed platform boosted users' self-confidence and fostered international interactions, enhancing communication and foreign language skills alongside coding project development. It provided children and youngsters opportunities for language development and a valuable "learning from mistakes" experience. This platform created a free, accessible, and globally connected learning environment independent of time and space.
Expanding the project's reach ensured accessibility for all, including disadvantaged individuals, positively impacting the learning aspect. The platform catered to everyone, from beginners to professionals. Each project partner and coordinator teacher conducted monthly webinars for 12 months, featuring experts in coding. These webinars, lasting at least one hour, allowed users to ask questions, see sample applications, and assess their coding projects, fostering high-level information sharing.
Impact and output
Students and platform users had the opportunity to improve coding and programming skills using various tools and software, demonstrate coding projects in different programming languages, enhance their foreign language communication skills, express themselves and share knowledge, become more aware of their European citizenship, gain a deeper understanding of technology and its logic, realize their ability to control and engage with technology, get motivated to use technology for their benefit, raise awareness about the importance of ICT and coding education in schools, and promote coding and programming awareness in society.
