NewTechKids is happy to be featured in the January edition of PrimaOnderwijs, one of the Netherlands’s leading magazines on education trends servicing school directors and teachers.
The feature article focuses on our teacher training programs and how we prepare teachers to teach computer science, programming and technological literacy in the context of 21st century skills development: problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication.
The article outlines NewTechKids’ pedagogy, teaching approaches, classroom management strategies and our use of no technology (games, pen and paper activities, arts and crafts) to teach technology concepts to primary school students.

NewTechKids’ next teacher training program (9 weeks) runs from March 16 – May 25, 2016 at Science Centre NEMO in Amsterdam. It will prepare primary school teachers to introduce computational thinking and the key concepts behind coding to students ages 4-12. Register now!
