This is a very short introductory course that aims to make EU Code Week more appealing and meaningful for teachers and schools and raise awareness about the importance of integrating coding and computational thinking into their lesson.
This course will provide primary and secondary school teachers with ideas, free training material and resources to help them organise a Code Week activity, while developing innovative teaching approaches and increasing students’ knowledge and motivation.
Teachers will learn what is Code Week and how to participate in this initiative, that last year engaged 2.7 million people in Europe and beyond. At the end of the MOOC, participants will have to register an activity in the Code Week map. After reporting the activity, participants will also get a certificate validated by the European Commission for their participation and engagement in the campaign.
