CoderDojo announced as a 2014 Nominet Trust 100 winner!
We are happy to announce that CoderDojo have been announced as a 2014 Nominet Trust 100 winner!
There is a growing consensus among policymakers and educationalists that we need to do more to encourage children to create, rather than just consume, digital media. It turns out the kids might be a step ahead in this already, and none more so than the kids within the CoderDojo movement!
CoderDojo is a volunteer-led movement of free and not-for-profit youth coding clubs. Dojos are self-organising clubs where 7 to 17 year olds can drop in to learn how to code, build websites, apps and programmes. Learn more and get involved below:
About the Nominet Trust 100
The Nominet Trust 100 celebrates the people and organisations who are using digital technology to change the world for the better. Each year, it brings together, 100 of the world’s most inspiring examples of social innovation, where digital technologies have been used to tackle a significant social challenge.
The NT100 aims to:
- Celebrate how much is being done by social innovators to tackle real social challenges, often under the radar.
- Learn from what has driven these social tech entrepreneurs and provide insights into what makes it possible for a social tech venture to have an impact at scale.
- Inspire others to follow in their steps, to raise the ambitions of social innovators using technology, and accelerate the use of digital technology as a tool for significant social change.
