What is the best way to facilitate adult training?
Hélène Lanternier, deputy mayor in charge of school affairs in Quéven (Morbihan), ordered training from the Colori company. Objective: to allow the two facilitators of the leisure center, Marion Le Tiec and Élodie Poitevin, to then lead their first workshops at the center in complete autonomy.
After the videoconferences, it was the first face-to-face training. For the moment it is experimental, but it could then be of interest to nursery schools.
The workshops take the form of code and technology discovery activities for children aged 3 to 8, without a screen. For Sabine Quievreux, trainer within the Colori network: Digital, code and more generally technology are based on logical concepts and languages totally independent of the screen. The code is part of the languages that should be acquired so that these children are able to act effectively in the environments of tomorrow.
The child is initiated in a creative, playful and sensory way, without a screen
The basics of programming are worked through activities of cutting, coloring, motor skills and drawing. The child acquires a general knowledge of technology and develops his critical thinking vis-à-vis the digital.
Paradoxically, children have to be prepared for this technological whole but we must avoid exposing them to screens which alter their ability to concentrate. The languages offered by the Colori method, totally independent of the screen, are based on concepts that the youngest can grasp.
Early learning promotes a better understanding of these topics in adulthood.
Learning in a benevolent way
Children quickly understand that a robot moves with precise orders. In the long term, children know very quickly what a humanoid, an algorithm is. Children have the right to make mistakes because they work freely, emphasizes Sabine Quievreux.
