Oxfordshire school kids to get ICT head-start

Oxfordshire children as young as three years old can now master skills such as computer programming, coding and animation via classes in nurseries, schools, afterschool clubs and holiday schemes.

ComputerXplorers has come to the region to enhance ICT education for children aged three to 13 with fun-led workshops. The firm operates in partnership with education providers to develop children’s abilities and confidence with activities tailored to their age, stage and curriculum requirements.

It is widely recognised that ICT is a vital component in contemporary education. However, a 2012 Ofsted announcement claimed that whilst most children and young people are adept at using technology in their everyday lives, schools sometimes struggle to keep pace with such a rapidly evolving subject.

ComputerXplorers is an independent organisation that can help bridge the gap.

Deborah Trujillo-Philippopoulos, who recently set up ComputerXplorers Oxfordshire, says that young children are very capable and eager to learn. She believes providing them with exciting opportunities to explore areas such as storytelling, music, maths and science via technology provides a firm foundation for their future – both in terms of their education and career prospects.

“Many adults think that skills like computer programming are terribly complex and difficult, but they really don’t have to be,” Deborah explains. “That’s why it is so important to introduce children to age-appropriate software where they can find their feet, explore the possibilities and stretch themselves at an early age. Building a computer game can be just as much fun as playing one – and you learn a whole lot of transferable skills in the process. ComputerXplorers can help education providers ensure core ICT skills are second nature for this generation – just like literacy and numeracy.”

Deborah previously owned and ran a successful international event management firm before taking a career break to have children. Her eldest is now five years old, so she has a finger on the pulse of what excites and engages young children.

“As all good teachers know, learning should be fun and it should harness that natural curiosity of children. ComputerXplorers provides the stepping stones for children to create their own virtual worlds in a way that appeals to them.”

ComputerXplorers Oxfordshire will be operational from this month, and Deborah is already recruiting her first member of staff to help run the workshops.
