Code for all, jp.ik’s partner, joined for this four-day event to launch its Edtech solution, Ubbu.
Ubbu is a platform that through animated videos, interactive games and exercises teaches Computer Science to children from first to sixth grade. "Children with access to our classes have substantially improved the results in Mathematics, logical thinking, computational and problem solving. In Portugal we already taugh programming to more than 60 thousand students and along with our partners - jp.ik and Microsoft - we will reach 1 million children worldwide in 2019 ", says João Magalhães, CEO of Code for All.
For Jorge Sá Couto, Chairman of jp.ik, "learning to program allows us to stimulate some of the 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, creativity, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. Thinking in regions where Internet connectivity is rare or even non-existent, having Code for All and Ubbu in an offline format is an excellent opportunity, enhancing the teaching of programming to the youngsters. Together we want to reach as many children as possible”.
Finally, and in line with how partnerships are important, two of jp.ik's new devices, Slide T301 and Trigono V401, stood out in the Microsoft booth tagged us "affordable touch devices" designed to run Windows 10S.
