COURSE INFORMATION


Coding is the new trend in education. Many studies have shown that coding helps students to develop critical thinking and problem solving.The course is organized for the teachers to learn the basics of coding. This course is for beginner and user with some experiences as well. It will be an introduction to computer science to all teachers, even with no experience in coding.

We will use SCRATCH software for coding. Scratch is visual programming language. You can drag and combine code blocks to make a range of programs, including animations, stories, musical instruments and games. It’s a bit like the programming equivalent of LEGO!

There will be lessons in the morning and the trips will take place in the afternoon. You will experience both study and holiday at the same time.
