digit<all> is led by a team that has a track record of providing digital training and learning to teachers and young people across the UK training over 5000 primary and secondary teachers and across more than 2000 schools. This success was provided through a wide range of digital support, enrichment, and training for teachers.
Calling all parents, teachers and community leaders
Come and join us for a fun coding activity, programming their own small personal performance device, to collect data such as their positioning, acceleration and steps. They will learn coding, data science, the importance of using tech alongside physical activity and how to measure performance using data. The children will have an opportunity to meet some young prefessional sports players.
They will then take part in a coding activity (no prior coding knowledge necessary, everything they need to know will be taught on the day). The children will then have a chance to look at their data and analyse it using data science techniques. The day will be filled with coding, quizzes and fun.
We would be delighted to hear from you if we can support your local school, sports or community club via our registration of interest form.
