Learning Resources has teamed up with BAFTA Award-winning educational YouTuber and TV presenter Maddie Moate to highlight the benefits of learning coding skills through play with Botley 2.0 the Coding Robot.
The activity will feature on Maddie’s Instagram account – @maddiemoate – from this week, with supporting activity on Learning Resources’ social media and digital channels, and forms part of the company’s Back to Learning campaign, launched to coincide with the new school year.
Maddie says: “The computing curriculum in schools ensures most school-age children experience some form of coding education in the classroom. There’s no reason for parents to be fearful of coding, even if they don’t have first-hand experience of it themselves!
“I’ve teamed up with Learning Resources to outline the benefits of learning to code and to share tips on how parents can incorporate some fun coding activities at home.”
Simon Tomlinson, Head of Marketing EMEA, Learning Resources, adds: “We’re delighted to have Maddie working with us to show parents and kids how easy it is to introduce STEM and coding skills through fun, hands-on play with Botley 2.0. As she puts Botley 2.0 through its paces, Maddie’s engaging approach and content makes STEM learning and screen-free coding approachable and fun.”
