Are you ready? It’s finally back! The best programming league is almost here and this new edition brings some news and changes. The Codeathlon Summer Edition 2021 will begin next Monday, May 17 and will end on September 17. From this weekend you can start registering your teams on the online platform: remember that it is necessary that at least 3 members of the clan agree to participate in the coding league and that only students who have reached level 2 will be able to access the challenges.
According to a report by the World Economic Forum, by 2025 automation will already be as present in jobs as humans. Specifically, 47% of global work will be automated, compared to the 33% that was estimated to be in 2020, so the destruction of many jobs is expected, but also the creation of many others that don’t exist yet. To face this transformation process and adapt to the new job market, it will be necessary to acquire new skills and key competencies that will make a big difference between those who acquire them and those who do not.
Typing is the ability to write without looking at the computer keyboard and using both hands. We must bear in mind that computers currently have word processors which incorporate dictionaries and are capable of detecting mistakes and correcting them, so that it is much faster to type, but with typewriters this process was slower and errors couldn’t be erased without a trace, so the speed and accuracy gained by a person who could learn to type was very important.
The Karel Challenge is a game / eSport that tests participants’ speed, strategy and correctness when programming. Its main goal is to spread the importance of programming and computational thinking among children and young people and to do so in a fun and exciting way. You can now join the competition whether you are a Codelearn student or not.
April is here and this year we are organizing our World Book Day Contest again. Students will have the opportunity to show us all their creativity through a special adventure on the platform, where they will be able to make his drawings by using Logo or create animations with Scratch.
