Study day

We give you the theory and practical tools you need. The study day is intended for preschool teachers, and teacher and other personnel with teaching responsibility in preschools and compulsory schools. 

Experiment as method

We demonstrate how you can nurture pupils’ curiosity for science and technology,  how to work with algorithmic logic, and  how to adapt experiments to the previous knowledge of pupils, and their special situation and requirements. We show in this way how you can reach the teaching aims of the curriculum.

You will be given several real examples of how to use the method in your teaching.

Further education in algorithmic logic for preschools and compulsory schools

Tom Tits Experiment provides inspiration and the tools you need to be able to start and continue to teach programming and algorithmic logic. This comes from your participation in study days or workshops full of practical and theoretical examples of creative and playful activities designed to develop language, held in our inspiring building.

Through various forms of creative activity, the children develop their digital expertise and skills in:

  • critical thinking
  • problem solving
  • curiosity and creativity
  • taking the initiative
  • giving and following stepwise instructions
  • logical and mathematical thinking
  • communication and collaboration.

Examples of tools and methods:

  • unplugged programing, such as programming a dance or obstacle course
  • digital interactive narration using block-based programming in Scratch or Blockly
  • robot programming.

Teachers in compulsory school will also work with the programming of microswitches.

The following is included in the course fee:

  • course leader
  • materials
  • investigation of a number of experiments at Tom Tits Experiment
  • 10% discount on shop prices.
