You still have 10 days to join a community of teachers, parents and coding enthusiasts and register for the #CodeWeek Icebreaker online course in coding and computational thinking.
This introductory course has an estimated workload of five hours in total. Participants will have the possibility to start and complete the course in one day or five weeks, depending on their availability and free time, between 11 May and 15 June.
The short introductory course aims to make EU Code Week more appealing and meaningful for teachers, schools, and parents while raising awareness about the importance of integrating coding and computational thinking into their lesson. Learning how to code can empower students to be at the forefront of a digitally competent society, develop a better understanding of the world that surrounds them, and increase their chances to succeed in their personal and professional lives.
This course will provide participants with knowledge and skills about coding and computational thinking, as well as ideas, free training material, and resources to help them organize a Code Week activity anytime, anywhere.
Teachers, parents, and educators will learn about Code Week and how to participate in this initiative, that last year brought together 4.2 million people in Europe and beyond. At the end of the MOOC, along with the knowledge and skills acquired, participants completing the course successfully will obtain a badge and a certificate from European Schoolnet. Besides, if they participate in EU Code Week, they will obtain a certificate validated by the European Commission.
