28 March, 2018 –
Standing up to cyberbullies is the theme of this year’s Premier’s coding competition.
I encourage Stafford students from Years 3 to 10 to take up this challenge – creating digital heroes to teach others how to handle online bullies and be safe and secure online.
We want to support all Queensland schools and students to engage in coding and be digitally literate. I know that there’s a new generation out there who can combine imagination and digital expertise to create brilliant results.
This coding competition is just one initiative in the Queensland Government’s Advancing education action plan, which addresses the importance of equipping our students with the skills they’ll need for jobs of the future.
Examples of entries could be an animation, a game or an interactive map – it’s only limited by students’ imaginations.
