Digital literacy brought to life this Europe Code Week

Coding is a universal language — one with incredible potential to empower people and help them build a better world.

In an increasingly online world, coding and computational skills are vital. Whether we are streaming TV, playing a video game, communicating with friends and family, using a computer or tablet to produce a website or presentation for work or just booking a break away, coding increasingly underpins every aspect of our lives.

It’s not just our personal lives that coding plays an important role – a 2022 report by DCMS says coding, along with improved digital literacy, could provide a £41.5bn boost to the UK economy by 2025 as well as support 678,000 new jobs.

Aston spoke to Kelly Herbert, Apple distinguished educator at Harlow College.
