The project develops innovative educational approaches of Computational Thinking (CT) and related to transdisciplinary and holistic STEM perspectives for future teacher education. We develop a pragmatic methodology to CT as to asset of tools, techniques and approaches which enable a seamless transition from the young child's unplugged type of activities to the comprehensive modelling and computer simulation activities of K-12 and early university students.
About the project
- to improve pedagogical skills and competencies of future teachers, that are related to the teaching and training of various aspects of CT;
- to develop a deeper understanding of future teachers in CT.
