Supporting teachers with virtual training during distance learning
Type of Education Resource
As DFRobot realised that teachers needed support with their training and mental wellbeing during this difficult time,we began running free, real-time virtual lessons aimed at STEM teachers.
Since the start of February, most schools in China extended their winter holidays to keep students and staff safer at home. As we also realised that teachers needed just as much support with their training, development and mental wellbeing during this difficult time, we began running free, real-time virtual lessons aimed at STEM teachers, but pupils as well, to help them upgrade their skills and knowledge about new technologies.
The live lessons covered various subject areas such as coding, Internet of Things (IoT)and artificial intelligence (AI), with DFRobot instructors offering step-by-step tutorials on how to build different STEM products, as well as more general lessons covering the practical skills of coding with Python, micro:bit and Arduino.
