Educators who are interested to teach, design educational scenarios and produce the required educational material for special courses in Python, Physical Computing and Educational Content Creation should express their interest by completing this form.
Every course consists of 4 (every Saturday for 1 month) 3-hour lessons (total 12 hours ), the educational materials will be in English and adapted for mixed courses (Greek and refugee teenagers), the educational materials and the exercises will be developed in elearning modules for moodle, all educational materials will be implemented in https://elearn.ellak.gr/ and will be made available with Creative Commons License. The teachers will be reimbursed for developing the teaching materials and teaching the courses.
- Teaching experience in synchronous and asynchronous environments
- Thorough knowledge of the subject
- Knowledge of creating and operating courses in the Moodle platform.
1) Introductory Programming Course: is an introduction to the basic concepts of coding through the use of the Python programming language. Students must become familiar with the basic principles of programming and computational thinking. At the end of the course they will be able to develop simple programs involving graphics and movement.
Week One: Installing Python, Calculations & Variables, Strings, Lists, Tuples, Maps.
Week Two: Moving the Python Turtle, IF and ELSE, Loops and Modules.
Week Three: Classes, Objects, Functions and Modules.
Week Four: Python Turtle Graphics.
The Introductory Programming Course will be taught in May 2017.
2) Advanced Coding course: is an introduction to the concept of physical computing, working with microcontrollers, sensors and motors. On completion of this module, students must be able to design, adapt and program a simple 3d printed robot with basic sensors and movement capability.
Week One: Working with sensors and motors – Arduino and/or Raspberry Pi programming.
Week Two: Designing and 3d printing a small robot.
Week Three: Systems integration.
Week Four: Testing & troubleshooting.
3)Content Creation course: is an introduction to the concept of producing and editing text, images, sound and video. On completion of this module, students must be able to work with these different media types using open source tools and share their work by publishing it final on the web using a content management system and/or a wiki.
Week One: Working with text and images.
Week Two: Sound capture and editing.
Week Three: Recording and editing video.
Week Four: Publishing content on a CMS/wiki.
The Advanced Coding course & the Content Creation course will be taught in June 2017.
The pilot courses will be initially held in Athens.
