Coding for Teachers

A course to help teachers prepare students for future skill requirements

Every day the need for people with coding skills in Europe becomes more obvious. Technology has already become important in practically every occupation but we find that it is a huge challenge for our education system to keep up with this development. While it’s true that in recent years have coding knowledge is creeping into school curricula, these important changes are slow and only limited to a few countries. This course was created to support all teachers who are willing to take the initiative and learn how to impart these all important coding skills to their students. Not only will teachers learn the Python programming language, they will also learn to teach computational thinking and explore ways of integrating coding exercises into other school subjects, such as (but not limited to) natural sciences and mathematics. The course is suitable for complete beginners and for advanced coders alike. We will work in small groups in a pleasant environment right next to the sea. We will adjust our learning tasks on an individual basis to your needs and skills. We will also develop materials together with you that can used straight away in your class.

The course is structured in 3 phases:

1) Preparation Phase

Before the class in Crete we will invite you to the members area of the course site where you can find introduction videos and exercises that get you started right away. We will lead you through 10 steps that get you into coding in no time. If you need any help, we will be there for you. If you find the 10 steps too hard we will adjust the course materials accordingly to make sure you can learn at a level you are comfortable with. Remember, the course’s primary goal is not to turn you into a professional programmer. We want to help you teach your students coding in an exciting and motivating way.

2) Coding for Teachers Class Phase

In this phase you will focus on improving your own coding skills and preparing teaching materials that you can use for your students. In the class we alternate between explaining concepts and elements of programming, giving you individualized tasks, developing teaching materials in small groups, and inspiring you to introduce coding elements in different school subjects. We run this class in a relaxed atmosphere by the sea and give you plenty of opportunity to focus on the learning goals that are right for you.
As a result of the course you will end up with teaching materials optimized for your own needs. You will save a collection of exercises and solutions in your personal online area so that everything will be available to you whenever you need it.

3) Cementing and Support Phase

After the class in Crete we will continue to support you online and we will have individualized tasks for you in order to keep you active. Once again, there are 10 steps for you to go through, spaced out over the 10 months following the class. You will have the opportunity to work on tasks that will make sure that you remember everything you learned. We will also support you and answer any questions you might have. Our intention is to give you the support you need for implementing coding in your classroom and the members area of the course site will provide teaching materials, exercises to brush up on your own skills, and our friendly support.
