ECDL Foundation’s new Computing module was launched in Malta today, at an event hosted by ECDL Malta. The new module will help candidates build and certify skills in areas like computational thinking, problem solving, algorithms and coding. It is aimed at the education sector, particularly secondary school students, and their teachers.
Digital media is firmly part of the modern classroom. Computers, tablets and smartphones are now just as much a part of everyday learning as they are in students’ lives outside school.
