Programming and computational thinking skills are becoming ever more important in our society and working life. Learning to code develops other skills such as problem-solving, logical reasoning and creativity, and can help give students motivation in mathematics theory as it encourages them to apply their knowledge. Schools are key players in introducing programming to students in an engaging way, and help defuse negative stereotypes around computer science. During the course teachers will learn about the importance of programming in today's society and education, learn ways to introduce programming in cross-curricular work, discover and test different programming tools, explore ways to motivate and encourage students, and develop a programming lesson plan for their classrooms. The workshop will be organised during the Europe Code Week.

All the courses are aimed at primary and secondary teachers and ICT coordinators, enthusiastic to enhance their teaching through new ideas, tools and pedagogies.

The course fee is 750€ covering the tuition and materials. There is also a cost of 100€ for meals (incl. 5 lunches and one dinner). Other meals, travel and accommocation will be organised be the participants themselves. Learn here how to apply for Erasmus+ funding for your school; Erasmus+ application deadline 17 March 2014.
