CDI Portugal / Apps For Good Portugal

CDI Portugal does Social Inclusion and Innovation throuh the use of Technology. We deliver Apps For Good which is an alternative to the traditional teaching: project methodology that prepares young people to the future and challenges the way technology and business are taught in schools, focusing on a number of problems along the way such as: Children not choosing STEM subjects or careers;2. A lack of diversity in tech; 3. The development of soft skills. That way we are creating a new generation of problem solvers and digital makers by giving them the opportunity and guidance to develop a product. rnNow we are developing our platform based on the Outsystems platform ( the ww leader on low code programming) and we want to add a XR course in our curriculum in order to give visibility to more than 100 k students and teachers. We deliver Digital Citizenship Centers in some regions in Portugal with the same target and our footprint includes UK, Portugal, Poland , USA .....
