Technology is constantly improving and with it the lives and jobs of people all around the world are regularly adapting. Many schools want to ensure that we set children up with the skills they need to be successful in a world that may be different to what we see today.  In this episode, Mark Steed is joined by Andy Tallett and Liam Murphy, Digital Technology Lead, and Innovation Lead at Kellet School in Hong Kong, to discuss why skills learned through coding are essential for setting children up for success.

  • Bringing learning to life
