“We are coding”: a teacher’s story from Turkey
Publication date: October 18, 2018
I am Burcu Yüksek, a pre-school teacher from Adana working with students aged between 4 and 5. This year we decided to participate in EU Code Week.
In today’s world where pre-school education is very important, coding will help my students develop key skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, as well as information and technology literacy.
I have been working with 10 students in a disadvantaged area and in this Code Week event with various basic activities, I tried to show them coding in a fun and game-like atmosphere.
We called our activities ‘’We are coding’’.
As a final activity my students experimented with the augmented reality and the related activities I created for them.
We had a great time learning and having fun together.
Thanks to EU Code Week we love coding. And we will keep learning and practicing even after the Code Week is over.
