BASIC ALGORITHM AND CODING

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.

Learning Outcomes:

All the participants will:

  • Identify and analyze the problems they encounter in daily life.
  • Identify appropriate steps for solution of the given problem, bring solution proposals and solve them.
  • Identify the operators required for problem solving.
  • Program platforms and applications
  • Develop Algorithms
  • Develop codes and apply with simple programming tools

Objectives of the Course:

  • Modernization 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 and 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 programs. You will be given the opportunity to try out and have practice and get feedback all the programs 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

Methodology:

  • Identifying basic algorithms and coding process
  • Creating teachers team
  • Working in groups cooperatively
  • Designing projects that include the structures included in the course content
  • Sharing the course materials and program content with the trainees via online platforms

Target Group

  • 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.
  • The participants will also prepare a presentation to reflect their own teaching method.

Validation

  • A course participation certificate will be given to all participants.
  • A Europass Mobility Certificate will be given if the participant demand, as well.
