Coding and Problem-Solving in the Primary Classroom

Coding and Problem-Solving in the Primary Classroom

This course introduces teachers to coding and problem solving in a practical manner, using a range of structured activities that can be easily transferred to the classroom. Participants will explore how the methodologies of computational thinking are fundamental in developing problem solving skills, the improvement of which positively impacts students’ learning right across the curriculum.

Throughout the week, teachers will use and develop a variety of lessons that can be used without any need for computers. The course will also introduce teachers to the use of STEM-focused manipulatives such as Lego WeDo, Bee-Bots and Spheros that can be incorporated into teaching and learning from the Infant classroom up to Sixth Class. While primarily focusing on problem solving skills and coding for Mathematics, this course will also look at ways that 21st century problem solving methodologies can be used in a variety of other curricular areas.

Participants will explore how the content of this course supports the Digital Learning Framework.
