Kulmbach ford schoolchildren program with spab

Everything to do with computers. He is responsible for the internet presence of the werner-grampp-school and as a specialist teacher, krasser also wanted to introduce modern technology to the students attending the werner-grampp-school. IT is also part of the curriculum at the forderschule as of this school year.

But how do you get children and young people with special educational needs to understand the abstract world of computers?? The appeal of complicated formulas and abstract programming language is certainly not apparent to the students of the werner grammpp school.

"We have purchased five matatalab sets", says jens krasser. The sets are intended to help the students find their way around the world of programming language – without any technical gobbledygook or screens. However, the government made the procurement of the sets, which cost around 150 euros, subject to one condition: the werner grammpp school had to get an external partner on board – i.E. Another school.

Learning in small groups

The werner grammpp school has found the partner it has been longing for in the vocational school center. Students from the social branch of the FOS/BOS have recently been providing guardian assistance and regularly help the ford students to get started in the world of programming. In concrete terms, this means that the FOS-BOS students visit the forderschool students and help them in small groups to learn the programming language.

The matatalab sets consist of a white board, at the end of which there is a kind of lighthouse – the control tower. In this lighthouse sits a droll little computer man. The students have to put their personal computer commands on the board in the form of small plates.

The equipment includes various task sheets and then there is the actual bid. The bot is a funny little robot that moves in the programmed direction at the push of a button. If the schoolchildren have programmed the path they want to find correctly, the bot will drive itself (at the push of a button) towards its destination as if by magic.

"But that is not so easy", nico giebner (11), leonnie schoberth (10) and mia sophie wagner (12) agree. The three schoolchildren are therefore happy to be helped by rafo rafo (21) and jenny schenke (19).

With a slight grin, nico giebner places a two on the board. This makes it clear that the computer has to execute the command twice. "Press the button", nico cheers on the others in his group – because he really wanted to know whether the offer would reach its destination.

"Matatalab is really cool. It’s just fun, says lukas hahn (12). And nico adler (12), who is also a member of the group, is also pleased with the success that the schools are experiencing with the help of personal assistance.

"Of course i could also explain to the students how it works. But the nice thing about the cooperation is that we can do small groups, that the schools have young contact persons", jens krasser explains.

"For the students of the FOS/BOS, the lessons are a great diversion. All schools have the social branch," says, says tina hammer-stosch and speaks of a win-win situation.

FOS/BOS students have long had contact with students with learning disabilities, social or mental deficits. Because at the vocational school center there is also the "future online social school project". FOS students from kulmbach help people with disabilities to operate computers.

Try out the matatalab robotics project at the FOS/BOS photo day on 15. The robot can be viewed at the FOS/BOS in the vocational school center in kulmbach from 9 a.M. To 12 p.M. On february 15.
