Girls to be inspired to code by combining the programming instruction in the fine arts – Ilkka Paananen: Coding is 2020-century crafts

fifth grade Harold Josefsson to draw comics: Hungry girl goes to the fridge, there is not a food. The second option in the cupboard is food, and the girl is happy.

brown types Laukolan school students are introduced to programming by practicing the if–else sentences. Bob the builder looks like a fairly normal picture of art class, which is drawn.

– in fact, this is already coding, the logic thinking. In the next step can then be material materialise on the internet, told the 19-year-old Niklas Ansamaa , nitoma my school's founder and ceo.

lesson around their own teacher in addition to the two software design of the tip guard to the part of the man: Ilkka Paananen and Niklas Ansamaa. They are involved in the Art of code in project (switch to another service), which create a programming teaching material 5.-7. grade art class.

the Material will be piloted in southwest Finnish Through, Masku and the rise of women's schools. The aim is that the materials can be obtained in a couple of years use free of charge to all Finnish primary schools.

Ruskolla had an idea, Paanasella money

the beginning of the Project brings to mind the Cinderella-story. The teacher, Through digikoordinaattori Janne Korsimo to read over a year ago in Helsingin sanomat in Finnish Ilkka Paananen, Risto siilasmaa, the and a few of the corporate manager signed opinion articles in the (you move to another service), whose title was "Usa can't win without the world's best coding products".

That place Korsimo wrote an email to Ilkka Paanaselle. He told supercell's ceo, which is how not personally known, that the encoding of the teaching in the school of the art material in the context of everyone's great ideas, but they don't have school money for that.

Already, the same day Paanaselta be a positive response: he leaves the finance to try. No other than the wheels in motion.

Now Ruskolla, Maskussa and Nousiaissa sought a new and inspiring way to teach coding school art classes in the context. Paananen financial and Ansamaa develop the contents together with the pilot schools with teachers.

software companies miss the women's creativity

the Programming entered primary school curriculum in 2016. It is actually mathematics teachers ' responsibility area, since the programming is recorded in the specific mathematics objectives.

Why Ilkka Paananen and Niklas Ansamaa now want to bring to programming in the visual arts class?

we Want the it industry to more women and otherwise creative people. It is important to show you how creativity will come up in coding. Almost any will be able to build programming, Niklas Ansamaa insure.

Paananen and Ansamaa speak with one voice about how the encoding of the merging of art material can get the girls to wake up.

Ilkka Paananen is very excited to follow what his funding will allow the school class.

it Has been fantastic to see how children's creativity takes form on paper and code.

– Just the first time doing anything like this, said a fifth-grader Toni Karlsson, when he taught himself coding the cartoon of the season. Paula Collins / Yle"Programming is the modern universal civilization"

Niklas Ansamaa became known that he taught himself to program from Youtube and made a 14-year-old mushroom guide for smartphones. In his opinion, programming is a modern general education.

– Biology is taught in school, in order to understand, say, how the body works. Programming is the same thing. We are surrounded by devices everywhere. It is good to understand how they work.

Also Ilkka Paananen wants to terminate the programming of the mystery.

– Often there are misconceptions that coding is some kind of fool can, which only a select few understand. Of course it is not so.

When talking about programming processing skills, are in the background often specific to the needs of businesses to get skilled work.

– not Everyone needs to become programmers, but a certain understanding for each good. What's more get people to refer to coding at an early age, the better chance you have to get some of them to the actual top student, believes Ilkka Paananen.

top-coded respondents according to him, many have started already ten years old.

Of the teachers is a little shy

What kind of lunch for elementary school teachers is to teach programming?

Kysyypä relevant teaching from the government, the teachers 'trade union OAJ:sta, from teachers themselves or from the world of business, the answer is always the same: the teachers' skill level is a lot of variation (you move to another service), even some big gaps.

– some teachers feel that they are not ready to teach coding. Then it's surprisingly easy when they're little familiar with it, said the teacher Elina Salminen. Paula Collins / Yle

Also, the state at the spring council in a study published by the (you move to another service) in particular, part of the more than 40-year-old teachers is afraid to confront the digital world. Teachers basic training in coding is not covered, and training is very fragmented.

Thus, the Art of code -the project has big expectations. The goal is to get a network for teachers such a good package, that they are able to pull the same thing without a separate train anywhere.

it Always helps if the board has the opportunity to support teacher training. But we aim to ensure that the package is so good that the trainers needed, says digikoordinaattori Your Korsimo.
