Participants in the training, which aims to improve parents' 21st century skills, will learn about the code.org program, video conferencing programs, virtual classroom apps, presentation and poster preparation apps, online security programs, digital creativity apps, and coding programs. Participants will actively learn how to use these programs by putting their theoretical knowledge into practice. The trainers are available for assistance if necessary throughout the practice process.
Mr. Hasan Süel, the Chair of Vodafone Turkey Foundation, stated:
"As Vodafone Turkey Foundation and Habitat Association, we are resolutely continuing our 'Coding Tomorrow' project implemented 6 years ago to raise generations ready for the digital future. Until today, we have given coding training to over 242,000 children in 81 provinces. Moreover, we also expand the scope of our project every year. We organize family meetings to improve the digital competencies of parents as well as our children. As part of the parent meetings we started last year, we are organizing a parent training special for Father's Day for the first time this year. We are looking forward to meet all our fathers in the trainings that we will organize online and share significant issues on 21st century competencies.”
Mr. Sezai Hazır, the Chair of Habitat Association, stated:
As Vodafone Turkey Foundation and Habitat Association, we are aware that by collaborating with our children, youth, adults, and parents, we will be able to contribute to our country's digital transformation. For this reason, we train our children in coding, awareness of the environment and natural disasters, while also we train our youth with artificial intelligence and our parents about 21st century skills. With the 21st Century Competences trainings, we hope to help our parents advance themselves in a variety of ways, improve their digital literacy, and expand their digital competencies. We will continue our parent trainings in line with this goal. I want to thank everyone who took part in the special training we organized for Father's Day and wish everyone a happy Father's Day.
6149 parents received training
As part of the "Coding Tomorrow" project, parent meetings are organized to increase parents' digital competencies, offering them training on 21st-century competencies, resources they can utilize in the digital world, and critical matters to be paid attention to. Participating parents note that they are now, thanks to this training, more aware of many issues they did not know about in the digital world. The project has so far trained 6149 parents in total.
The project has reached over 242,000 children
Children between 7-14 across Turkey receive theoretical and practical training by volunteer trainers on various subjects, including the introduction to programming, algorithm logic, application development, storytelling, and game development within the "Coding Tomorrow" project. In the trainings, children are given the opportunity to have an idea about programming, do activities that can uncover their creativity, create their own dream world, and produce their own games. As part of the "Coding Tomorrow", which has reached over242,000 children in 81 provinces to date, 6,6 million TRY of social value was obtained in one year, and each investment of 1 TRY for the project yielded a social return of 4,4 TRY.
