Description du projet :
Empowering young people with computational thinking skills has been recognized as crucial to helping them understand the physical and social worlds they inhabit. On one hand, in Switzerland, different initiatives are to address this issue in secondary education and, on the other hand, teachers still need support for implementing innovative and relevant approaches into their teaching practices.
The PACT project aims to offer secondary school teachers in computer science the opportunity to get this support through innovative resources dedicated to game-based learning and teacher professional development grounded on design-based research. A group of researchers, computer scientists and teachers will collaborate on the design, development, implementation and analysis of game-based teaching scenarios. The expected outcomes are (1) innovative teaching resources (games), (2) experienced teachers ready for acting as computing ambassadors and teacher trainers and (3) frameworks for innovative teaching scenarios supported by strong research results. This project will be the starting point of an application for an SNF grant.
