Coding with LibreLogo: A step back into the future
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 suite LibreOffice.
The aims are:
Making teachers aware of the existence of free software and of the opportuinity 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 teacher 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.
The event will take place between the 17/9/2018 -to the 28/09/2018 in English.
