Young Rewired State is the philanthropic arm of Rewired State and is a network of developers aged 18 and under. Its primary focus is to find and foster the young children and teenagers who are driven to teaching themselves how to code, how to program the world around them. This is a mighty challenge though well-supported with free tutorials online, but inevitably an isolating and solitary activity. Young Rewired State developers, as well as developers from Rewired State and Coding for Kids took part in an LWF hack style event, coding throughout the 2 day conference, fuelled by coke and pizza. The resulting prototypes were shown just before the final keynote to the audience at the Learning Without Frontiers Conference, London, January 26th, 2012 http://www.learningwithoutfrontiers.com
Learning Without Frontiers is a global platform for disruptive thinkers and practitioners from the education, digital media, technology and entertainment sectors who come together to explore how new disruptive technologies can drive radical efficiencies and improvements in learning whilst providing equality of access.
