EU Code Week Online Bootcamp MOOC is the new online course designed by European Schoolnet in the framework of EU Code Week initiative. The MOOC is designed to help pre-primary, primary and secondary school teachers to bring coding and computational thinking into their classrooms, by providing them with useful resources, practical ideas and tools. The course is organised in 3 modules that participants can follow at their own pace. The MOOC is open to everyone but the main target audience are pre-primary, primary and secondary school teachers from Europe and beyond with an interest in the use of coding and programming in the classroom, regardless of the subject they teach and their knowledge of digital technologies.
Teachers will have the chance to discover the potentials of the use of Artificial Intelligence in education and will be able to experiment with new learning materials, creating new personalised activities. This MOOC is structured following a blended learning approach that provides for on-site study groups, hand in hand with activities carried out online. This will allow teachers to connect with like-minded colleagues and create an active community that will be able to exchange good practices and foster collaboration and teamwork in the classroom.
