This September 26 at 11:45 am will start the presentation of the ‘Programming for educational improvement‘ program at the Citilab facilities. In this presentation session, the technicians of the town councils and teaching staff participating in the training will be assisted, who will also visit Citilab to know the center’s career in the teaching of programming and the promotion of scientific vocations.
As in the previous editions, the course will be given again to Citilab, which will host the two sessions of 4 hours of face-to-face training on October 3 and 10, will offer support for the development of the project in the classroom and will deliver a Scratch 4 Arduino kit for each center with the necessary material to start working in the classroom.
Once again, Citilab acts as trainer of trainers in this new edition, the project financed by the Diputació de Barcelona that is aimed at Primary and Secondary teachers to work on the benefits that programming can contribute to the usual work at the classroom. In this way, he supports scientific and technical competitions and vocations and seeks the advance towards an innovative educational future that puts in value programming, robotics and technology.
As of October 3, all participants will be involved in the development of projects to improve learning strategies and work the logical thinking in schools. If you are interested in signing up for the next edition, you can ask for more information at the Diputació de Barcelona (934 022 222) and Citilab.
In the last edition, teachers from 17 different educational centers took part and carried out projects focusing on four specific areas: computational thinking, programming, STEM and robotics. All the projects can be consulted on this website and some of these are: the model of a home of the Llavaneres Institute, a study of Scratch projects to complement the technology contents of the Estela Ibèric Institute, the game TA TE TI in English of the Montpedrós Institute or a prototype of the home automation house of the Tabor School.
