17KE805 Computational Thinking


This course introduces teachers to the concepts of computational thinking and coding.  Participants will explore a combination of “offline” and “online” activities that will focus on the development of student’s problem solving abilities.  There is an array of tools including Lego and Bee-Bots which are colourful and easy-to-operate.  The bee-bots are a little robot which is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving and just having fun.  These can be incorporated into teaching and learning from the infant classroom up to sixth class.  While primarily focusing on problem solving skills for Mathematics the course will look at ways that computational thinking methodologies can be used across curricular areas.

Tutor:  Ciaran Costello
