Vebinar 6

After three cycles of training of teachers and principals within our "21st Century Schools" program, a large part of primary schools in Montenegro have already received a donation in the form of micro:bit pocket computers. In the current conditions, it is very important that children and teachers do not lose continuity in the application of newly acquired coding skills on these devices.

The aim of our webinar was to share experiences with teachers on how they can effectively organize the work of Micro:bit clubs online using the collaborative tools of the Moodle platform and Microsoft Office OneNote.
