Première journée de Fan, la formation des ambassadeurs au numériqueFirst day of FAN, training for digital technology ambassadors

The first day of FAN, a project funded by the Grand Est region, will take place on Tuesday, 20 November 2018 at the Inria Nancy - Grand Est research centre.

  • Date : 20/11/2018
  • Place : Inria Nancy - Grand Est
  • Guest(s) : Erwan Kerrien, Marie Duflot Kremer, Isabelle Chrisment
  • Organiser(s) : Inria nancy - Grand Est, Les petits débrouillards

The objective will be to train educators and facilitators so they have the means to introduce the youngest students to computational thinking.

Training based on the Class’Code system

“Learn how to introduce young people to computational thinking” is the basis for the Class’Code training programme. Since 2016, the programme has been training educators and facilitators so they have the means to introduce girls and boys aged 8 to 14 to computational thinking.  

A bridge group

The group of about twenty learners is composed of facilitators at centres for children, science education, teaching, etc.  It is a bridge because the purpose of the training is to enable them in turn to train and support facilitators and educators in offering activities to introduce computational thinking to young people aged 8 to 14. 

A two-step training course

Prior to each of the five training days, learners are required to take one MOOC-type module in the series of five. Each module is coupled with a day-long training that will serve as a practical application of what they have learned in the modules so they can share their experience and the difficulties they encounter and carry out practical exercises such as unplugged labs.

Following the November 20 session, there will be a total of four days of training, one every two months until June 2019.
