Parents and educators are being encouraged to have their say on the future of coding and robotics education in Queensland schools.

“We know that 50 per cent of future jobs will require high level digital skills and that’s why digital literacy – including coding and robotics – is a major focus of our Advancing Education plan,” Minister for Science and Innovation Leanne Enoch said.

“We want Queensland students to have a competitive advantage when they compete for the jobs of tomorrow.

“Increasingly, coding jobs will be required in all sectors of society including agriculture, health care, engineering, mining, law enforcement, education and retail.”

Ms Enoch said the #codingcounts discussion paper outlined the future of digital education in Queensland schools.
