Course details

Projects, passion, peers, and play. In short, we believe the best way to cultivate creativity is to support people working on projects based on their passions, in collaboration with peers, and in a playful spirit. Mitchel Resnick explains how coding, collaboration and creativity are strictly connected to improve social and personal skills and form aware citizens.

The course offers resources and reflections to understand why coding and computational thinking are important and how to introduce them in the classroom, as they are relevant to our students’ lives and their comprehension of the world around them. While learning to code, you become familiar with the EU Codeweek Campaign and the opportunity to be part of a great community that will inspire you to create or take part in collaborative coding projects with eTwinning.

The course will start on 3 October and conclude on 19 October 2022. The estimated workload is 3-5 hours per week.
