ComputerXplorers has launched ICT classes for three to 13 years olds across Sussex. The class scheme was launched by ComputerXplorers franchisee Mark Bullen, who is based in Sussex.
According to the company mastering technology skills at an early age increases children's e-confidence and competence, and gives them a great head start to their education. ComputerXplorers runs classes that are inspirational, and designed to enhance the learning skills of children of different ages and abilities. The classes are held in nurseries, pre-school settings, primary schools, after school clubs and summer camps.
Mark's 11 year old daughter, Grace, has already given the thumbs up, Mark said: 'Grace looked at the course materials and tried out some of the software and she thinks it's great. That was a really important acid test.
'Learning how to use a computer and software is an essential skill to assist children throughout their education and in the workplace. ComputerXplorers classes are great because they are such fun that the children don't even realise they are learning.
'We provide all the equipment, materials and the teachers so there is nothing for the schools and nurseries to do other than provide the room and the children. ComputerXplorers is helping schools across the county to meet their curriculum needs for ICT and I'm hoping it's going to be a big hit in Sussex.'
Younger children can develop their confidence and build their academic readiness skills in core areas such as literacy, maths, science, music and art. Older children can improve their computer and software skills, and learn some exciting new computer-based subjects like clay animation, movie-making, robotics and how to design their own video games.
