To enable a cross-border exchange of knowledge despite the Covid19 situation, a basic coding workshop was held in English on 18 March 2021. Czech teachers from from Vysočina and the South Moravian region learned about contents and methods that are used in Austrian schools.
The equipment for the making workshop “Coding with the micro:bit” has arrived.
Under the motto “Making” participants will learn how to use the micro:bit in combination with sensors, displays, servos and electronics for creative projects.
The teaching aids were designed as part of a long-term pupils project of the school ZŠ nám. Republiky in Znojmo, Czech Republic – Printing of the teaching aids on a 3D printer. In order for pupils to be able to create a 3D model using design programs, they first had to master the issue of the teaching aid. Thanks to the new equipment, a 3D printer, they were able to transform the 3D model into a real form, and at the same time create more copies for easier application of the teaching aid in the class. Pupils were able to present teaching aids (the cube, the map and the letters) to their classmates, thus proving that they handle the topic very well.
The kick-off networking event of 8 partner schools from the Czech Republic and Vienna took place via ZOOM.
The program included introducing the teachers and the project team to each other, presenting the common goals of the partnerships and planning further steps.
Selected project schools in the South Moravia region can look forward to new equipment that they have received as part of the DigiMe project for the implementation of their long-term school projects to promote digital competences.
