CODEMOB – teaching coding and mobile devices in telecentres is a project that will design two courses on coding and mobile devices for users and a training curriculum for e-Facilitators.
CODEMOB proposes to create a comprehensive curriculum through which unemployed young users will learn how to use their mobile devices to find a job. The curriculum will also provide an introduction to mobile app development in relation to coding. CODEMOB will take into account the latest technological developments (software) in both coding and mobile technology.
CODEMOB project partners will design two new courses on coding and efficient use of mobile devices that will be run in telecentres. The 2 courses will be part of an existing training curriculum already developed for e-Facilitators in previous EU projects.
The project will explore and aim to prove the potential of coding for enhancing skills of unemployed youth and increasing their employability. CODEMOB focuses on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets as they make working away from the office easier and more efficient. Employers highly value skills for using mobile devices.
This project is a continuation of the telecentre movement’s long-standing efforts in supporting the teaching of digital skills and capacity building of e-facilitators.
