#CodincEU partner @colectic_coop hosted two project multiplier events in June, sharing the good practices and lessons on how coding and robotics can be used to facilitate inclusion of vulnerable groups.
Colectic implemented a presentation and 4 hands-on workshops about the CODINC project to showcase methodology and curriculum, to give a practical experience with coding activities, and to discuss results and some lessons we learned!
In the workshops for educators, e-facilitators, students and policy makers Pep Oliveras from Colectic showed how to use the CODINC activities from the Toolkit and work on social inclusion in a classroom or after-school activity. All participants agreed, coding can be a very powerful tool to foster self-confidence and promote STEAM vocations, if used with an empowering methodology like peer-learning and service-learning.
#CodincEU shows that coding and robotics can be used to promote social inclusion in a fun and educational way.
Service-learning and peer-learning to foster self-esteem, self-confidence and empowerment
A pre-job experience in the field of robotics training, to be a teacher for a day helps changing “bad” habits in classroom.
Cooperation with 4 or 5 schools involving over 100 kids and students during 15 or 30 hours is highly complex, good planning is mandatory.
Good training with secondary school students to better prepare them for the service-learning and workshops with their younger peers.
Training for primary and secondary school kids is vital, and very much appreciated!
