ARTECH. CREATE OUR CLASS OF ART WITH CODING
We can learn to code in different ways but in this course, we will do it by launching an art project without knowing how to program. Discover the music, create interactive stories, video games and apply your creativity thanks to programming with Scratch and interaction with Makey Makey, webcam or microphone.
In a programming project, it is essential to read, reason and understand what you want to achieve. With this course, we will learn how to program with Scratch, a block programming language that makes it easy to implement in the classroom (ages 7-11). Using art as a guiding thread, we will learn to program and create music projects, bring pictures to life, experiment with sensors, make small video games and collaborative stories.
When we program we are learning to divide the challenges into smaller activities, to think about what we want to create and move them into action. We learn by doing. But programming is not just a new language. Thanks to it, as teachers, we can evaluate if they have integrated the concepts previously worked in the classroom if our students are able to solve team challenges, listen to the ideas of their peers and communicate their own. We can create cross-cutting projects from all educational areas and use a motivating tool for most students as it combines technology and creativity. For this course, we will mainly use Scratch because it is a block language that does not need to write code, free and on-line. And when you learn a programming language, you’re learning the basics of everyone else.

Yes, we organize local transportation, hotel, food, cultural visit, and social activities. Please contact us about the details and the offers. We prefer to offer organization fee and the options when your project is granted by Erasmus Plus due to the fact that the cost is changing from date to date and the locations.
Yes, we do. Utopia has working fields like art, play, pedagogy, and other alternative methods. If your idea fits our vision and our resources we can propose you a tailor-made programme according to your needs. We create groups with minimum 6 participants. If you have 6 participants or more we can organize a course for you on the dates and location you prefer.

A need and profile analysis will be sent to participants to determine the needs and profile of participants before the course. This form of participant profile is very important for us to see the level of knowledge and awareness about the topic, the needs of participants and expectations According to the information obtained from this form, our program is designed. Before our participants come to the country where the course will be implemented, they must make the necessary preparations for the topic. We will send to participants an information pack which has the necessary information to not to face problems during the course and other times. This package includes all logistical information (weather, currency, airport transfer, course location details, contact information, etc.) and preparations for participants for the course. In the course organization team, we have a guide for the groups for practical arrangements and the problems.
Our course is mostly conducted by non-formal education methods. Participants are actively involved in our creative drama activities, and participate in the activity in abundance and learn by having fun. We don’t like power point presentation based courses. We have materials, our body as the most important instruments and creativity. Group and individual works and experiential learning based studies are carried out.
At the end of the course, general oral and written evaluations are made and achievements of the participants are assessed. Cultural excursions and closing events are organized after the course closed with a certificate of attendance. We will share our photos, videos, reports, and materials which are produced during the course with the participants. The course will be monitoring by trainers and reports will be prepared by trainers to inform participants about the quality of the course, outcomes, evaluation results, feedbacks and etc.
