Robotic Coding

Preparation

The course provider sends the necessary information regarding the course materials to the beneficiary school. After the detailed information about accommodation, transportation and eating and drinking of the visiting teachers is sent to the schools, a preliminary information is given to the leading teachers about the content of the course.

Description

Robotic coding encourages students to embody their abstract thoughts and be productive. With the learned codes, students can change the robot's behaviour as they wish and manage their movements.

It is an inevitable end for children to meet with smart devices and computers. What should be considered here is the time spent with these devices and for what purpose they are used. Thanks to Robotic Coding, the time children spend with these devices can be transformed into a state that can be positive for their development by eliminating negative effects.

Children who start coding education at an early age develop more in mental development, problem-solving skills, planning of work, establishing relationships between situations and generating new ideas. In addition, children who are introduced to robotic coding also have a basis on how machines work. For this reason, their mental development in this direction enables them to be more successful in coding in advanced ages.

Robotic Coding is important because:
Provides analytical thinking skills.
Allows you to see the relationships between events or situations.
It helps them think creatively.
Increases problem-solving ability.
It makes him think systematically.
It helps machines to understand the logic of operation.
Kids' learning to code enables them to make a difference not only in their profession but in their entire lives.

Follow Up

After the course, all trainees will be given copies of all course materials that can be shared with their colleagues in their institutions within the scope of dissemination activities. In addition, a self-assessment form will be provided to enable trainees to learn on their own. At the end of the course, participants will fill out an evaluation form regarding the content of the training.

Specifics

•  Activities: all courses include at least one guided city tour and one full-day excursion (usually on Saturday).
  Certificate: all our courses guarantee a Certificate of Attendance if 80% of the lessons will be attended.
  Lessons: classes take place in the Morning (9:00 – 13:45) 
  Platform: participants will have free access to our e-learning platform.
