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!

WeGoSTEM - Flanders

Thu, Oct 1, 2020 12:00 AM

Dwengo vzw/asbl wants to empower teachers so they can discover with their pupils from the 5th and 6th grade their talent for science and technology. We challenge the children to build and program a creative art robot that can draw independently. This way they learn a lot of STEM skills, from technology to computational thinking. For a lot of teachers, building robots in the classroom might be new. Therefore we bundled all our supporting didactic material in a MOOC (massive open online course) and we link every participating school to an experienced WeGoSTEM volunteer. With the online help of their buddy, teachers will be able to bring the workshop in their classroom.

Dodona: an online co-teacher for learning to code

Sat, Oct 9, 2021 12:00 AM

Dodona is an online learning environment for learning to code. The platform supports various programming languages and is freely available to schools as a support of their programming classes. Students sign up through their school's Office 365, Google G-Suite or Smartschool account, enroll in courses, and choose from thousands of programming exercises. They can use a built-in editor to program and submit solutions and see automatically generated feedback after just a few seconds. They can use this feedback to adjust their source code in an iterative process that leads towards a correct solution. At any time, they can monitor their progress through a course and see upcoming submission deadlines. As a teacher you can create courses in which you design a learning path with exercises for a specific target group. In setting up the learning path, you can tap from a large collection of carefully worked out programming exercises with varying degrees of difficulty. But you can also add your own programming exercises to Dodona and share them with your colleagues if you want. Via learning analytics you constantly keep an eye on the progress of all students in your courses, both individually and in across the entire group.
