Abstract: Coding Club: A Learning Community in the School Stavroula Misthou, CS teacher, MSc. MEd. 7th Junior High School of Athens, Greece stavroula.misthou@gmail.com Abstract: By 2020 a shortage of 800,000 employees is expected in Europe in IT sector, mainly in programming. Formal Education fails to prepare young people for the digital job market. The school can develop activities that help to bridge this digital gap. The paper presents the experience of the after school activity program entitled “Coding Club: I code creatively in the digital environment” that took place at 7th Junior High School of Athens (2015-16). The goal of the Coding Club is students to become familiar with Computer Science, programming, computational thinking and problem solving. The didactic approach involves distance learning, flipped classroom and learning by experience activities that form a learning community whose members learn how to learn. The paper proposes the Coding Club program as a good practice that combines creativity, innovation and digital skills.
