The student is able to:
- apply the principles of programming and logical thinking, and data processing in practice
- solve and model problems using programming concepts and infrastructures in practice
- apply exploratory work and production in co-development processes, creative production, and as a tool for learning
- operate in programmed environments (programmed technology in different areas of life, programmed technology in everyday life)

Programming thinking: logical thinking and information processing, problem solving and modeling, programming concepts and basic structures, practical skills (e.g. robotics, programming Beebot and LegoEV3 and other programming applications, VR, AR, gamification, additive manufacturing: 3D)
Investigative work and production: co-development processes, creative production and programming as a learning tool
Programmed environments and working in them: programmed technology in different areas of life, effects of programmed technology in everyday life
Additional information for students: previous knowledge etc._peppi
No further digital competencies needed.
The course assignments are evaluated in Moodle on a pass/fail criteria, where the pass grade corresponds to level H3. Accepted performance requires participation in online workshops.
Assessment criteria: assessment scale failed/approved
