MC5: Coding is the New Literacy – The World of Coding for Teachers
Learn the basics of programming and how to support your students to blast-off into the world of coding. Programming is the closest we can get to super powers, says Drew, the creator of dropbox. And seriously, programming can be used for a huge amount of things in our daily life. Programs can control robots that discover the planet Mars or help to care for elder people. As a teacher, you are preparing kids for their life and computer science will become more and more important within the next decades. Having knowledge about how programs work can help you understand what is happening in the world and our daily lives. We have developed this course to not only let you get an idea of how programming works but also to help you implement the teaching of coding in other classes, such as mathematics and science. This course will challenge you and help you acquire solid coding skills in the Python programming language, bu we will also let you take a glimpse at other languages, such as Swift. You don't need to know anything about coding, we will make it easy and take you to a level at which aren't only able to write code yourself but also feel confident enough to teach your students. We will adjust the course to your needs and make sure that you will work on sample codes that are useful for your classes. Our goal is to let you experience that programming is not as hard as you might think. You will be able to guide your students on their steps to good programming once you have understood the mechanics of it. We can promise you that you will learn a lot with loads of fun! )

MC6: Using Technology in Class – A Beginner-Friendly Introduction to New Opportunities of Teaching
The world of technology moves at a rapid pace and schools face the challenge of keeping up with it even though they often lack the necessary funds and teachers are not trained to handle all the new devices. However, as politicians realize the importance of funding schools enough to keep up with the world's technological development it we are experiencing may situations in which schools end up with tech devices but no training for the teachers who are supposed to use them in class. This course was designed to give teachers not only a solid understanding of how mobile devices, wireless technology, projection and video devices as well as computers function, it also teaches how new technology can be used in class to get results hat would not be possible without it. We specifically don't want to use technology for technology's sake, we will explore situations and tasks for which the use of various technological devices makes sense. This course is very suitable for beginners from all types of school. We will adjust the course content to your need so that you will definitely be using the skills you acquired in the course in your daily work. )

MC7: Advanced Coding for Teachers
This course picks up where the first coding course left off and takes teachers deeper into the world of coding. We will use the Python programming language in order to create real programs that perform useful tasks. We will use object-oriented code that lets us re-use a lot of the code we write and we will end up with our own collection of code snippets that will be very useful in teaching. We will also focus more on the integration of coding into other school subjects such as mathematics, natural sciences, geography, history, politics and language learning (and other subjects if there is an interest). Course participants will end up with a portfolio of personalized detailed lesson plans that they can directly implement in their classes. )
