What to expect from the event 

On 9 March 2024, EU Code Week invites teachers of all subjects and levels and educators to take part in our second #EUCodeWeek #TeachDay.

We invite you to be part of this unique initiative and support the continued development of a strong and diverse community of educators.

What is EU Code Week?

EU Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way.

Started back in 2013 by the Young Advisors for the Digital Agenda Europe, the European Commission, and in particular DG CONNECT, supports EU Code Week as part of its strategy for a Digital Single Market and through the Digital Education Action Plan which especially encourages schools to join.

EU Code Week thrives thanks to a vast, international community of volunteers. EU Code Week’s backbone is the Ambassadors, the Leading Teachers and representatives of ministries of education in the EU and Western Balkans countries – the Edu Coordinators.

No previous coding or programming experience is needed to join the EU Code Week. The EU Code Week resources are introducing teachers and education professionals to key concepts related to coding and computational thinking activities.

EU Code Week is for all school levels, from pre-primary to upper secondary, promoting diversity and inclusion in digital education!

What is Teach Day 2024?

EU Code Week Teach Day is an online event aiming to celebrate digital creativity and coding in the classroom. This online event will bring together education experts from multiple areas offering discussions on the past, present and future of computational thinking and programming in education settings. Teach day will dive into “Generative AI in Education” in theory and practice exploring effective and safe ways to implement it in the classroom.

A virtual exhibition  will be introduced where  IT companies and major NGOs active in the education field will share multiple opportunities for teachers and students. 

During, Teach Day multiple workshops will be addressing various topics and sharing fresh ideas from the coding world. The Teach Day is aiming to combine discussions with practical and interactive workshops and our goal is all participants to be able to engage equally in the sessions.

Among all else, Teach Day will empower the constructive dialogue on unleashing the power of digital skills in girls.

Why should I register for Teach Day 2024?

Education experts, researchers, teachers, students, and everyone interested in computational thinking in the classroom should attend this online event. Participants will walk away with innovative ideas in the field of education, learn insightful techniques and practices for teaching and learning coding.  Everyone would be able to engage and interact within an international community discovering how innovative learning environments and coding transform continuously the education ecosystem.
