STEM and ROBOTIC

This course is a kind of teacher training course which aims to support school staff with a new and innovative approach to teach how we can create exceptional classrooms where the students work together in small groups, scribble angles and math formulas on the whiteboard, write a storyboard script for a video, cut out colorful construction paper figures, and create code on their iPad for a robot.  

Schools must more rapidly adopt implementation of STEM-based programs, especially those including programming and coding instruction, particularly as such skills will become more essential than ever before. 

But what exactly is coding? Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Our  browser, our OS, the apps on our phone, Facebook, and this website – they’re all made with code.

Why do we have to add coding to our teaching process? Learning coding empowers us to do many things we wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. These things include hand-crafting our own websites, becoming a career coder or even starting a technology business. Most importantly, we’ll be able to understand the technology shaping our world.

 

This Course Will Offer To You:

•         Modernisation of your teaching style

•          Developing a school policy plan on coding and robotics in an effective and innovative way

•          Writing your learning objectives

•         Planning how you will teach coding to the students

•         Finding out the ways to encourage the students to code nad create their own robots in the scope of blended learning

•         Covering the different types of activities a teacher can use to modify his/her teaching skills

•         Understanding the importance of group dynamic and being creative and innovative

•         Improving  your own teaching methods in relation to technology

•         Managing and integrating ICT in your lessons

•         Developing your ICT skills and make use of various Web 2.0 Technology tools and programmes. You will be given the opportunity to try out and have practice and get feedback all the programmes introduced to you.

•         Adapting the new and innovative tools and methods to your teaching & learning situations & contexts

•         Focusing on effective teaching strategies that encourage the active involvement of all students in productive educational·environment

•         Tips for how to develop strategies to improve the educational quality of the school on the basis of technological applications in education

Target group

·  All kind of teachers, trainers, educators, school administrators, etc.

Preparation

Before the course,

·  A detailed pre-course questionnaire to indicate their level of experience, teaching backgrounds and training will be completed by participants.

·  They will also prepare a presentation to reflect their own teaching method.A closed Facebook group will be created for getting know each other of all participants and to share practical information.

Validation

·   A course participation certificate will be given to all participants.

·   A Europass CV will be filled together according to the skills and competences to be gained during the course  by participants.
