Introduction

Coding Education Unit is the unit under the Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology (LTTC); it aims to nurture youth’s competence, character, confidence, connection and caring for a healthy and productive life through coding education.

The Unit organizes courses and activities for students in EdUHK and local schools to learn coding skills, App development, design and production of artifacts with 3D printing. Through learning the programming language such as Java and Swift, it provides opportunities to enhance students’ skill building, personal recognition, community involvement, and positive connections with adults. Those are important elements to lead to positivity in youth development, which are the process of developing teenagers to be well prepared and productive for challenges in everyday life.
