Digital proficiency transits from “nice to have” to “must have”, becoming a crucial prerequisite for success today in any activity or profession. The social initiative Microcomputers for Kids provides Lithuanian kids and their teachers with up-to-date equipment, high-quality learning material and training. Microcomputers are given to all fifth graders in the country, while teachers receive training to help kids discover the possibilities of the hardware, integrating coding on microcomputers into the formal learning process.
