Unlocking 21st Century Skills: The Benefits of the ‘Coding and Robotics for Foundation Phase Teachers’ Workshop

Amid the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where technology and digital literacy drive progress, education has never been more crucial. Educators can keep pace with this seismic shift by integrating the new CAPS subject, Coding and Robotics, into their teaching practice. This is precisely why Cambridge has developed an essential new workshop: “Coding and Robotics for Foundation Phase Teachers”.

Comprehensive Curriculum Coverage

Endorsed by the South African Council for Educators (SACE) and worth 15 CPD points, this workshop covers the comprehensive curriculum that spans the fundamental principles of coding and robotics, decoding passwords, understanding and creating algorithms, and more. This workshop’s blend of theoretical knowledge with practical, hands-on activities sets it apart. Participants will gain experience constructing basic electric circuits, planning robotics activities, and exploring various unplugged coding activities.

Addressing E-communication and Online Safety

Understanding e-communication, digital identity, and online safety is vital in our increasingly digital world. This workshop addresses these topics in depth, ensuring participants have the knowledge and skills to safely and confidently guide their students in the digital space.

Assessment in the Foundation Phase

The workshop also provides training on effectively assessing coding and robotics learning in the classroom. Participants will learn about formative and summative assessments, enabling them to create a rich and supportive learning environment. These skills are essential in keeping students engaged and excited about learning.

A Focus on Low-Resource Schools

We believe that every school, regardless of resources, should have access to quality education in coding and robotics. This workshop provides strategies and solutions to overcome resource constraints and ensures that quality education is accessible to all. One of the significant highlights of the workshop is its focus on practical guidance for low-resource schools.

Why Should You Attend?

Educators in a rapidly evolving technological world have the critical role of preparing students for careers and lives that may look vastly different from today’s reality. This workshop provides the tools and knowledge necessary to teach Coding and Robotics effectively and to develop the 21st-century skills that students need.

The “Coding and Robotics for Foundation Phase Teachers” workshop represents an excellent opportunity for professional development. You will enhance your understanding of coding and robotics and gain practical skills and strategies that you can apply directly in your classroom.

As we navigate this new era of digital learning, workshops like this will increasingly become essential. This is your chance to stay ahead of the curve, equip yourself with vital skills, and continue to make a difference in the lives of your students.

So, are you ready to shape the future of education? Register today for the “Coding and Robotics for Foundation Phase Teachers” workshop and empower your students for the exciting challenges of tomorrow.
