IT teachers the world over are always looking for ways to encourage more students to code. 

From learning the basics to coding creatively for real-life scenarios, how can IT teachers attract and engage a more diverse group of pupils and students to learn coding?

MiRo-E creators and co-founders Dr Sebastian Conran and Professor Tony Prescott speak to Professor David Lane about how MiRo and social robots can be used to encourage creative coding and appeal to a broader audience.

Professor Prescott will also demonstrate how the MiRoCLOUD software can be used to help pupils and students to start coding using the programming languages Blockly and Python.
