The Future of Coding in Schools

Rating: 0/5

Coding is the process of using different cognitive skills together to solve a problem. The first step in solving the problem is a clear understanding and analysis of the problem. Coding provides individuals with multi-directional solutions to problems, encourages to think systematically and creatively, to relate events, to focus on problem-solving, to do teamwork, to think critically. Also, considering the time that children spend at the computer, it will be more useful to direct them to the topic that will be most beneficial to their development.

Follow-up
Trainees will be given soft and hard copies of all lesson materials, which they presenting to their colleagues at their own organizations to generate interest in 21st-century teaching methods with creative thinking. In addition, a mailing list of participants will be created in order to exchange ideas/experiences. Self-evaluation materials will be provided. At the end of the course, the participants will answer a questionnaire in order to get detailed feedback on the effectiveness of the training event.
