Short Session Description:
CoderDojo: World-wide Youth Coding Club Movement

Full Session Description:
CoderDojo is a movement oriented around running free not-for-profit coding clubs for young people. It was founded in Ireland in 2011 by James Whelton and Bill Liao. There are now over 125 CoderDojos in 22 countries around the world. Albemarle County Public Schools in Charlottesville, Virginia held its inaugural CoderDojo Summer Academy, August 6-9, 2012.  The initial goal for the Academy was to host 50 students. Those slots were taken up in the first few minutes of registration, so the program was expanded to 200 while over 700 applied!

Technology-based innovations like PCs, the world-wide web, social media and smart phones have fundamentally changed the way we work, communicate, govern and educate. Unfortunately, educational systems around the world have not been doing a very good job of providing students with the opportunity to get a peek "under the hood" of technology, to understand how it really works. CoderDojos make development and learning to code a fun, sociable, cooperative experience. CoderDojo also emphasizes open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.

CoderDojo founders, organizers, mentors, parents & students from around the world will come together in this session to share their experiences of setting up and running a CoderDojo.
