This course will provide an introduction to Sphero indi and how this fantastic and engaging resource can be used in the Primary setting (targeted at Early/First level) to enhance engagement in Computing Science principles and concepts.
We will encourage hands on practical experience with indi via a full day face to face session, self-study elements and a final afternoon live remote session, using the Sphero indi resources provided to you via the Enthuse funding (see Cost Tab below). There will also be a focus on developing an understanding of different pedagogical approaches, whilst considering the impact of play-based and cross-curricular learning, along with unplugged activities.
