Everyone Can Code

When you teach code, you’re also teaching logic, creativity, and problem solving—skills all students need for the future. The Everyone Can Code curriculum from Apple introduces students to the world of coding through interactive puzzles, playful characters, and activities for both in and out of the classroom. And from the start, they’ll learn to code in Swift, the same programming language used by professionals to build powerful apps.

Everyone Can Code is a set of free resources built around the Swift Playgrounds app that inspires students to code and solve real-world challenges. It includes teacher and student guides that offer flexible, engaging lessons designed to work for an hour or an academic year.  There are complementary Swift Coding Club materials for after school clubs.  App showcases give aspiring coders a chance to celebrate their ingenuity with the community, whether they’re learning in or out of the classroom.

Skills Development Scotland have been working with people in the cyber security sector, who have unique real-world experience to share with our young people, to show them what it’s really like to work in tech. This is a great opportunity to inspire the “digital humans” of the future. Taking authentic experience of working in the digital world into the classroom gives pupils a unique chance to learn more from a seasoned professional.

By talking about their role, what they do in their job, answering students’ questions about working in tech, as well as running a live engaging tech related activity/workshop/lesson they will help pupils to understand the digital world better. Not only that, but by talking about the other teams they work with, they can introduce them to the huge variety of roles in the tech industry.

If you would like to invite industry to virtually engage with your pupils, then get in touch with Debbie McCutcheon at Skills Development Scotland.
