Computational Thinking

This course introduces teachers to the concepts of computational thinking and coding to develop students' problem solving skills. Participants will explore a combination of "offline" and "online" activities that will focus on the development of students' problem solving abilities. Teachers will learn how the methodologies of computational thinking are fundamental to developing the problem-solving skills of reasoning, integrating and connecting, and communicating and expressing. Teachers will use and develop a variety of offline lessons that can be used without any need for computers. The course will also use STEM-focused manipulatives such as Lego, that can be incorporated into teaching and learning from the Infant classroom to Sixth Class. While primarily focusing on problem solving skills for Maths, the course will look at ways that computational thinking can be used across curricular areas.

Please Note: The venue has been changed to Scoil Náisiúnta Chiaráin Naofa, Stoneyford, Co. Kilkenny.
