Narrative coding in preschool and primary school, Workshop in Madrid, April 10th, 2024.

The workshop "Narrative Coding in Preschool and Primary School" aims to introduce teachers and educators from preschool and primary schools to the Erasmus+ project STORYCODE, its experimental and research-based approach, as well as its experience with free online training on Collaborative Narrative Coding practices in the classroom.

Narrative coding is a learning methodology that combines storytelling and programming practices in the classroom to foster computational thinking in children, proposing the creation of collaborative projects with personal meaning. Storytelling and programming can support each other, making digital coding accessible from the early stages of formal education.

The first part will include the opening of the workshop and a keynote speech on storytelling, collaboration, and computational thinking.

In the second part, there will be a presentation of the European project STORYCODE and the training course for teachers. Finally, practical examples of narrative coding will be presented using two digital tools: Scratch Junior and i-Code.
