What is an OurKidsCode Facilitator?
An OurKidsCode facilitator is trained by our team here in Trinity College Dublin to guide families through the process of starting an OurKidsCode Club.
Why should I become an OurKidsCode Facilitator?
OurKidsCode facilitators support creating an environment for parents and kids to be creative, playful, informed, engaged, curious and empowered in their use of technology.
Facilitators encourage families to work together which increases their confidence in coding in a fun and relaxed environment. OurKidsCode Taster Workshops and Club MeetUps are sociable and enjoyable. Being an OurKidsCode facilitator does not require technical expertise, we are not teaching coding, we are facilitating families to code and problem solve as a group. Experience or an interest in working with families is more important than technical expertise. Passion for STEAM education is a bonus! OurKidsCode facilitators share our belief that confidence grows in a learning environment that is safe, fun, encouraging and supportive.
OurKidsCode is not a course, it’s not a class and there are no tests!
All OurKidsCode facilitators are subject to garda vetting by Trinity College Dublin in line with our Child Safeguarding Policy.
