The MANCOSA School of Education’s iTEACHlab in Durban hosted 60 teachers from NAPTOSA for an exciting and engaging Robotics and Coding Teachers Workshop. This took place on Saturday, 02nd September 2023.
The aim of this workshop was to encourage teachers to embrace 21st-century technology in teaching.
The teachers were in awe of the presentations on Robotics and Coding, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Artificial Intelligence and how it is applied in education.
The highlight of the workshop was when the wonderful teachers got to code LEGO Spike Prime and LEGO EV3 robots, explore augmented reality technology using the MANCOSA iTeach app, and have an unforgettable virtual reality experience using the Oculus VR headsets. The practical session of the workshop also demonstrated key 21st-century skills, which included communication, collaboration, problem-solving skills, and teamwork.
