Educational content creation manager

- Pedagogical secondment possible -

CodeNPlay is a Belgian non-profit startup (startup-ASBL) that has existed for more than 5 years, whose mission is to educate young people in digital through learning computational thinking and educational robotics at school. . In addition to wanting to reverse the relationship of passive and uncreative consumption of the current use of digital technology, we use these themes to bring pleasure back into learning, by making it more concrete and playful.

To do this, we organize extracurricular activities with young people and training programs for teachers. We also help schools to form digital cells, with support and turnkey teaching aids.

The aim of the teaching aids for teachers is to provide progressive and coherent teaching aid in line with the skills (current and future) of the common core. The teaching aids allow the teacher to have a base on which to rest, to begin and on which he/she can iterate once more at ease with the subject. 

CodeNPlay has already trained over 1,000 children, initiated over 5,000, and plans to double training efforts at the child and teacher levels this year.

Role Description:

The educational content manager will be responsible for the quality of existing educational content and materials, as well as the creation of new digital education activity modules. These contents will include both:

 

  • The educational content of digital education from M1 to S3;

  • the activities and educational materials used by the children during extracurricular and intracurricular activities;

  • pedagogical scenarios and other turnkey documents allowing trained people (teachers and facilitators) to easily reproduce the activities with their group

 

In particular, the head of educational content will be the spokesperson at the level of actors and institutions of Belgian education. He / she will have the role of ensuring a coherent content and in adequacy with the school programs andour values.

 

It will also be expected that the head of educational content teaches each of our activity modules at least once, and continuously gives at least one weekly activity. This is necessary to master the activities of CodeNPlay in practice and experiment with new ones.
