Happening at:

Brussels, Belgium

From Thursday, October 18, 2018 2:30 PM
to Thursday, October 18, 2018 5:00 PM


The DIS-CODE project is happy to celebrate EU Code Week giving the chance to teachers and their students to experiment with coding and work in group activities that do not require any previous experience in programming. For this reason, a special event will take place at the Future Classroom Lab, in Brussels, and every teacher is welcome to register and participate on their own or with their students. During the workshop, the main results of the DIS-CODE project will be presented and participants will get hands-on experience, solving challenges about robotics, visual programming and mobile app development. The activities will be in English but assistance in French can be provided, whereas they are addressed equally to educators and their students giving them the chance to learn by playing and creating together. It is mandatory to register your participation before coming as places are limited. Registrations are on a first-come, first-served basis so we encourage you to register as soon as possible. Contact us if you'd like to participate!

European Schoolnet (the network of 34 Ministries of Education) and ISFE (representing Europe’s video games industry), team up to launch the fifth edition of Games in Schools, a project designed to train teachers across Europe how to use commercial video games as pedagogical support in their classrooms, all for free. Learning by play has the potential to increase student engagement and learning outcomes, and technology can support them even further by allowing them to express themselves digitally. Register to weekly follow the Massive Online Open Courses and learn more about how you can use video games as a pedagogical support in your classroom.
