Robotics for Inclusion Introductory course

This course is aimed at teachers and school staff from pre-school to secondary level, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of NGO, government and policy makers and company staff and anyone is interested in acquiring competences on how to facilitate inclusion through Educational Robotics and coding Instruments. 

Educational methodologies will be presented to be  applicable to different learners’ needs and with different robotics and coding instruments.

Participants will be able to experiment with different easy to use lesson plans  that will allow them to acquire confidence from both technical and educational point of view and be able to apply them in different educational environments. 

Arguments will be tailored on group participants.

Audience

Teachers and school staff from pre-school level to primary, secondary, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers and company staff

Prerequisites

  • Participants are expected to have at least B1 level of English proficiency.
  • No previous experience in coding and Educational Robotics is needed

Methodology

The course will focus on educational  robotics approaches to empower inclusiveness of teaching activities and learning environments.
