Practical information, resources, and inspiring ideas for getting started or going further
STONEHAM-ET-TEWKESBURY, April 5, 2022 – Robot bees on the ground, programming competitions to solve problems, algorithm debates, class-scale simulation of Perseverance on Mars, designing a solar lamp… More and more schools are integrating computer programming into their learning activities. But beyond the novelty and the source of motivation that computer programming offers to students, how do you successfully introduce it as a learning activity?
In today’s ultra-connected world, learning the basics of computer programming is becoming increasingly necessary. Understanding how machines work now helps better understand the world. Introduced in many countries, programming allows students to develop their digital skills, particularly in terms of computational thinking. Furthermore, it contributes to the development of many other human skills like problem-solving, collaboration, content production, innovation, and creativity.
As a teacher, how do you confidently embrace this new world? In this issue, our team offers a wealth of practical information, resources, and inspiring ideas for getting started or going further. It has been designed as a support and inspirational tool. How far will you go?
