Junior Coding Academy – Visits at schools of Western Greece


Educational Visits at Schools in Western Greece. 45th Primary School of Patras Tsiligirian Hermione – Headmistress It is a great pleasure to host innovative and educational projects, in our school which help our children, acquire skills they will need later on, as active citizens. And these skills are digital skills, which are a pillar for both students and EU citizens. We are very happy, to be able to provide our students, through this project, with the basic knowledge and benefit their future. Angeliki Pountza – Computer Science Teacher With Scratch programming language, there are no syntax errors Students don’t need to write commands because the commands are already divided into blocks. Students understand each block according to the description, which commands should use every time Overall, this experience was very useful Students gained analytical thinking and realized how many things they can do through this project. High School of Aitoliko Chalazia Andriani – Headmistress Our aim is to provide our students with stimuli, so that in the future, maybe we can provoke their interest, for them to approach cutting-edge technologies Argyri Dimitra – Computer Science Teacher Too many students wished to participate, some of them twice, so, as a result, they become “multipliers” of the project, so they can share their knowledge with even more students of our school. These projects can only have positive results, by raising awareness and assisting students in their progress to whatever they want to do, based on programming and computing 2nd Professional High School of Amaliada Konstantoulas Konstantinos – Headmaster We were delighted to be part of this program, although we don’t have an IT specialized teacher But we have many students who are expressing their interest, and [I believe] by attending these classes may more will be interestedthe goal is to introduce them to the programming – coding “world Stathopoulos Giannis – Computer Science Teacher I think that this project, is very beneficial for the students. Most importantly, they are able to play and learn at the same time as long as our school will be able to provide them with Arduino boards… It is very important that [Arduino enables] students see the result of their actions Our main goal is for student to learn how to think, not just coding! 43th Primary School of Patras Markopoulou Myrto – Headmistress This year, we are working with my fellow IT teacher and the students, to join in the future! We wish to prepare the children for the future, starting with scratch programming, which is a pleasant programming language. It seems that children respond very well…and are happy to create, and if allow them to act freely they will do much more than we ask of them. Markantonatos Stavros – Computer Science Teacher We are taking introductory courses on scratch, for the fifth grade. We are still on our first steps. The children are trying to learn, to move simple characters to create simple scenarios, movements, dialogues… We are still on elementary level, we are doing our best… they like it very much, they are excited by everything they see … I believe by next year we will get to know more things and get even better! We are making different scenarios, with two people or animals, it is very nice … and I like it a lot, I would like to have it (here) and play, for the rest of the year on scratch you can create your own human figures and movements and I would like to have it at home, but when I can be a better player, I will download it at home and and become even better! Its fantastic and fun! I will download it at home when I become better, and I will play! Special thanks to: 43rd Primary School of Patras 45th Primary School of Patras High School of Aitoliko 2nd Professional High School of Amaliada
