Training Content and Approach

Each online session will provide teachers with computer science theory oriented towards primary education, expert teaching advice provided by Stichting NewTechKids (NewTechKids Foundation),  and a framework for developing their own lessons and teaching resources.

The sessions have been designed for primary school teachers around the world who are teaching in a variety of conditions. Participating teachers do not need any special technology tools and can develop lessons based on games and the usage of readily-available materials such as pen and paper, arts and craft supplies, and old technology devices.

Our Mission

We believe that primary school teachers will play a key role in preparing students for a world of rapid and constant technological development, future study and work opportunities, and active digital citizenship.

We are actively helping teachers introduce computer science, technological literacy and computational thinking to their students in the hope that these become part of formal school curriculum, on par with reading, writing and math.

We launched Share to Teach to accelerate the introduction of computer science education at the primary school level. Since January, primary school teachers in the Netherlands have been introducing computer science lessons to their students via our first course ‘Introducing Computer Science in Primary Education’.

Register for this course here.  Only primary school teachers are eligible to participate and will be notified by email when course materials are published online.

      Hi Aung Min, this course is strictly for primary school teachers from legally-registered primary schools around the world. Unfortunately, this means that since you are not a primary school teacher, you are ineligible to access the course.
