Initiation au Kodu

Posté le dans About MIC Brussels - Proposed services, Interesting links, Technology, Uncategorized

Le 25 mars 2014 le Microsoft Innovation Center Bruxelles a lancĂ© une nouvelle initiative visant Ă  sensibiliser les enfants Ă  la programmation. Le MIC organise des sĂ©ances d’initiation sur Kodu pour les Ă©coles primaires dans la rĂ©gion de Bruxelles.

Le principe est d’organiser des sessions d’initiation à la programmation sur « Kodu » pour des classes primaires de 5ème ou 6ème primaire. L’objet des sessions est de faire découvrir la programmation aux enfants.

Kodu est un logiciel permettant la crĂ©ation de jeux par un langage de programmation visuel simple et intuitif. Il a Ă©tĂ© crĂ©Ă© par Microsoft pour apprendre aux enfants Ă  programmer. Le logiciel a Ă©tĂ© pensĂ© pour permettre de crĂ©er des jeux pour faire travailler du contenu d’apprentissage, mais Ă©galement comme support Ă  l’apprentissage. En effet, il permet de travailler la crĂ©ativitĂ©, la programmation, la rĂ©solution de problèmes, ainsi que le rĂ©cit, dont l’utilisateur devient le metteur en scène.

Les sessions sont gratuites et se déroulent au Microsoft Innovation Center Brussels, rue Montoyer 51, 1000 Bruxelles. Nous accueillons une classe entière avec leur professeur de 9h à 13h et offrons un lunch aux enfants avant leur départ.

Op 25 maart 2014 heeft het Microsoft Innovation Center Brussels een nieuw initiatief gelanceerd waarmee het kinderen vertrouwd wil maken met programmeren. Het MIC organiseert initiatiesessies over Kodu voor lagere scholen in de regio van Brussel.

Het is de bedoeling initiatiesessies te organiseren rond de programmeertaal “Kodu” voor klassen van het vijfde en het zesde leerjaar. Het doel van deze sessies is kinderen te laten kennismaken met programmeren.

Kodu is een software waarmee via een eenvoudige en intuïtieve visuele programmeertaal spelletjes gemaakt kunnen worden. De taal werd ontwikkeld door Microsoft om kinderen te leren programmeren. De software is zodanig ontworpen dat men spelletjes kan maken om leerinhoud in de praktijk te brengen, maar hij kan ook als leerondersteuning gebruikt worden. De gebruiker moet immers creatief zijn, programmeren, problemen oplossen en een verhaal vertellen dat hij zelf in scène zet.

De sessies zijn gratis en vinden plaats in het Microsoft Innovation Center Brussels, Montoyerstraat 51, 1000 Brussel. Wij ontvangen een volledige klas met hun leerkracht van 9 tot 13 uur en bieden de kinderen een lunch aan voordat ze vertrekken.
