Course Motivation: The motivation behind the Coding and Robotics in Education course is to prepare educators to navigate the digital age and empower students with the skills necessary for success in the 21st century. As technology continues to shape various aspects of our lives, proficiency in coding and robotics has become increasingly essential. By integrating coding and robotics into education, we can cultivate students’ digital skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration abilities, preparing them to thrive in a technology-driven world.

Teaching Methodology: The course follows a blended learning approach, combining theoretical sessions, hands-on coding and robotics activities, group discussions, and seminars with industry experts. Each day focuses on specific topics related to coding and robotics education. Here is a breakdown of the daily sessions:

Day 1: Introduction to Coding and Robotics

  • Overview of the importance of coding and robotics in education.
  • Introduction to coding languages and programming concepts.
  • Hands-on activities to introduce participants to basic coding principles.

Day 2: Coding Fundamentals

  • Exploring fundamental coding concepts such as variables, loops, and conditionals.
  • Engaging in coding exercises and challenges.
  • Introducing block-based coding platforms and tools.

Day 3: Robotics Basics

  • Introduction to robotics components and mechanisms.
  • Hands-on experience with robotic kits and platforms.
  • Collaborative problem-solving activities using robots.

Day 4: Seminars with Coding and Robotics Experts

  • Seminars featuring experts from the coding and robotics field.
