Hour of Code – FREE training for Primary School Teachers

Waterford Primary School Teachers can join Rob O’Connor from Waterford’s Institute of Technology Department of Computing & Mathematics for a Talk and workshop on the Hour of Code and learn how to run their own coding activity in the classroom.

The “Hour of Code” is an international initiative to demystify coding and help make it accessible for all. All the resources are free and many of the activities are collaborations with licensed properties such as Star Wars or Minecraft. In the workshop, Rob will talk about some of their findings and reflections on the Hour of Code as well as how you can run you own activity.

This free workshop is organised by The Waterford Europe Direct Information Centre in partnership with WIT Dept. Of Computing & Mathematics and is part of EU Code Week. The WIT faculty from the Dept. of Computing & Mathematics have been running Hour of Code workshops since 2016.

The event takes place in The Hub, at Waterford Central Library, Lady Lane on Tuesday 15 October from 4:15 – 5:15pm. There will be some devices available on the day but attendees are welcome to bring their own laptop, tablet or iPad. Contact Lorraine Boyle on lboyle@waterfordcouncil.ie for more details.

Free but booking (via eventbrite) essential at: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/hour-of-code-free-training-for-primary-school-teachers-tickets-75312767515
