EXPERT: Andreas Robert Formiconi, Francesca Mancini
TARGET GROUP: Primary, secondary teachers
This Learning event will be on STEAM-oriented coding in classroom with LibreLogo, an implementation of Seymour Papert's Logo language which runs within standard ODT documents of the free office suite LibreOffice.
The aims are:
- Making teachers aware of the existence of free software and of the opportunity of using it in educational contexts, as a real life laboratory of sharing and collaboration
- Fostering a critical discourse in order to create awareness about advantages and disadvantages about both the text-based and block-based coding systems
- Deepening the teachers competencies on the use of the text-based coding language LibreLogo as a tool to improve the understanding of geometry, math and science concepts as well as a tool for free art creation.
