Introduce coding and computational thinking as a transversal resource to develop STEAM practices

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
This course is focused on learning how to use different educational resources that allow working on computational thinking as a transversal resource for learning and developing STEAM practices. The starting point is to learn how to use Scratch, maybe the most popular block based programming language, continuing using other educational resources like Makey-Makey, micro:bit and CoSpaces Edu. During the sessions, the participants could learn how to use these tools in order to create STEAM practices that can be developed in Primary or Secondary education.
Previous knowledge about computational thinking and these resources are not required to develop the course. The main objective is to learn how to use these resources in order to design a STEAM practices and educational project with the students.

Learning outcomes:

  • Create a video-game with Scratch.
  • Develop an interactive panel with Makey-Makey and Scratch.
  • Code a traffic light and many more things with micro:bit.
  • Create their own interactive virtual space with CoSpaces Edu.
  • Designing a STEAM project using one of the tools used in the course
