Educational materials

Educational materials are resources for children (videos, documents, stories, animations, etc.) that the teachers participating in InventEUrs project are using for two main purposes:
1.- Introduce new technologies to their students (e. g. online tutorials to learn Scratch).
2. - Introduce the topic that the children will have to investigate and around which they will perform the collaborative work with children from another country. A topic that is always related to the Sustainable Development Goals.
These materials can be designed by the teachers specifically for this project, or created previously by themselves, or they can be external materials (from the Internet, other projects, etc.).
We share here some of the educational materials that have been used and shared by teachers during the first wave of the project.
