Coding and Robotics in Education Course description

DESCRIPTION

The learning theory of constructionism asserts that people construct mental models to understand the world around them, and that this can be achieved through activities like building, tinkering, playing with components of machines and other systems, and watching how they interact.

Coding and Robotics is an innovative way to integrate with our modern classroom, to construct those mental models in our students, to build system thinking, learn engineering, and practice STEM concepts, following the theories of constructionism by using many robotic building kits. When writing codes, students must think both critically and creatively to tell a robot what motions to fulfil and they also have to ensure the code is correct. Also, perseverance through struggle, problem-solving, a sense of agency, and collaboration are all encouraged, fostered, and achieved through such projects.

This course is aimed at school education teachers who want to start integrating Coding in their classrooms. Teachers can easily introduce both coding into their curriculum through various programs, and robotics, which naturally aligns with programming learning and sometimes it can be quite an investment because it doesn’t require absolutely to be an ICT specialist! The exercises are designed to develop necessary programming skills step by step, and methods to teach children to think logically, as a software developer would do, which may also be useful in many everyday situations. By developing new skills, users are encouraged to plan and develop innovations in robotics.

The training’s goal is to learn to understand and to use technology to invent something new, to prepare content to apply it with your students and also to observe good practices of robotics and coding, which are already used in Europe’s educational area.
