Have they heard the buzzword Artificial Intelligence and wondered what it meant and how they can apply and understand it better? In this workshop they will learn about an artificial intelligence concept and apply it using drag and drop programming Move from being a "consumer" of technology to "creator" using technology! We will use an online application to make an artificial intelligence application like face recognition. No prior programming experience required as we will use drag and drop programming. It works like Lego blocks! Guided by a young Coach and tech enthusiast!

Introduce students to app design during Code Week
English

Join us for this workshop during which we will show educators how they can bring Inclusive App design to their classroom, with an activity suited for pupils from 5 - 18 years of age. 

Great apps start with great ideas. You can join Europe Code Week 2021 carrying out this one-hour Inclusive App Design Activity, which will introduce students to the world of coding and app development. In the activity, which you will learn to carry out during this workshop, students will come up with an app idea connected to a topic they care about, then discover how to design with inclusion and accessibility at the centre of their app design. After completing the activity, educators can go further with Apple’s coding resources for educators and students.

The workshop will be conducted in English but the resources are available in 12 languages: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

You can find out more about the Inclusive App design activity, that is part of the EU Code Week Challenges at this link: https://codeweek.eu/2021/challenges

EU Code Week Online Bootcamp MOOC
English

EU Code Week Online Bootcamp is a new EU Code Week MOOC that will provide pre-primary, primary and secondary school teachers with practical ideas, tools and resources to help them bring coding and computational thinking into the classroom. Teachers will raise awareness of diversity and inclusion in coding and explore the potentials of artificial intelligence in education.

In this three-module course, they will experiment with new learning materials and challenges, and they will create their own activities.  Teachers will be introduced to the EU Code Week initiative and the opportunities it offers. They will connect with like-minded peers and become part of a community that fosters collaboration, teamwork and exchange of good practice and stimulates discussion and reflection. This MOOC will be organized around the concept of blended learning with onsite study-groups working alongside the online course.

You can follow the course at your own pace. We will open one module at the beginning of each week, but there are only a few deadlines you need to pay attention to (those for the quiz and the peer-review activity).
