Microsoft stated today that a one-day training course covering coding fundamentals for a wide range of students, including those with special needs, was successfully completed.
Microsoft’s ongoing strategy of running learning programs for mixed-ability groups is intended to enable them to collaborate more effectively and achieve more.

According to Bertrand Malifarges, Communications Director of the Lycee Francais International de l’AFLEC, “We are in agreement with Microsoft’s position on the value of co-training student groups of varied aptitude.
“We regard programs like those given by Microsoft as critical to support our efforts, and those of other academic institutions, to ready our young people for the difficult road ahead.
In a fiercely competitive labor market, where digital skills are crucial for difference.
The program was part of a larger ongoing commitment from Microsoft to train mixed-ability student groups. It was delivered in conjunction with the French international school Lycee Francais International de l’AFLEC in Dubai.
The most recent class at the Lycee Francais International de l’AFLEC gave students with a variety of needs the opportunity to master coding fundamentals utilizing the most up-to-date interactive learning methods and to develop two functional computer games.
According to Tariq Halawani, Microsoft’s Executive Director of Enterprise Solutions, “Microsoft’s commitment to skilling incorporates the principle of nobody left behind.”
“We bring together varied groups that learn as one and create as one through exercises like our partnership with Lycee Francais International de l’AFLEC. By maximizing their potential, we make sure that the future workforce will include as many varied viewpoints as feasible. Additionally, diversity promotes invention more quickly.”
The training sessions, which took place on May 30, were a continuation of Microsoft’s steadfast commitment to accessibility, diversity, and skilling.
They concentrated on teaching soft skills like problem solving while building students’ confidence to overcome real-world challenges.
The training goes beyond purely technical knowledge.
Students were shown universally applicable concepts by Microsoft trainers, such as organized thinking, which encourages participants to break down difficult problems into more manageable tasks.
Students with difficulties ranging from dyslexia to ADHD were included in the class.
While learning the fundamentals of coding and using them to solve the practical issue of creating working video games, each was given the opportunity to realize their full potential.
