  • Preparation for credit - 14 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
Main goal is to teach future primary teachers algorithmization and basics of programming. That means to use abstraction, generalization by problem solving, to assemble sequention of commands, to use loop and objects, inputs.
Graduate student is required to program at basic level so thaat he/she will be able to teach it at primary. Graduate is required to orient himselves in environment for block-oriented programming, to assemble and read a program with comprehension, to find and correct mistake in program code, to create simple programming project (animation, short story).
Prerequisites
unspecified

Assessment methods and criteria
Student performance assessment, Test

2x seminar work: creation of own programming project to given topic. Passing a test of programming (creation of program code, reading the code with comprehension). Active participating in seminars (at least 80 %).
