Make your own fun Android apps with MIT App Inventor (children and teenagers)

MIT App Inventor is a visual programming environment that enables everyone to build apps for smartphones and tablets.

The course for beginners does not require any previous programming experience. It starts with an introduction to the App Inventor interface. Then, after Event-Driven Programming is explained, learners will discover the available command blocks which they will have to combine to make their own apps. During this course, learners will have the opportunity to use their imagination and practise analytical and critical thinking to create their own apps such as animations, games, quizzes, tourist guides or drawing apps.

This course also aims to engage intermediate or even advanced App Inventor programmers who can build on their previous experience to create more sophisticated apps.

The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

Extra information

Learners will need a desktop computer or a laptop to create their apps and an Android device to test them.

About Me

As a teacher specialized in programming and ICT, I provide material and resources for the development of analytical, critical, and computational thinking, while also encouraging my students to be creative. I design activities for the cultivation of interpersonal and social skills and a team-working ethos, which are essential for establishing a culture of mutual respect and cooperation. Furthermore, I aim to develop and foster a secure IT environment and an e-safe culture.

I have designed and implemented programming courses not only for young but also adult learners. Some of those courses do not require prior programming experience while some others are more advanced so that learners can choose the one best suited to their needs.

Since 2014, I have also been authorized to teach Maths in light of my mathematical background from my university studies. Therefore, in addition to my computer programming courses, I offer primary and secondary maths lessons.

Excellent teacher!
Fantastic! Ilias really prepared well and took the time to understand what my son needed. He was very positive and encouraging and we look forward to the next lesson!
Are you dreaming of creating your own games, animations or interactive stories? This course aims to enagage learners regardless of their programming experience. The course for beginners starts with a description of the interface and how you can import or create various backgrounds or objects. An introduction to basic command blocks follows, and as the course progresses, learners are given many opportunities to be creative, practise analytical and critical thinking, and combine various command blocks to add functionality to their programs. The course also aims to foster effective communication, as learners have the opportunity to share their creations on Scratch community, receive feedback and exchange ideas with other members. This course is suitable for children and teenagers.
Python is easier to learn and understand than other programming languages. Its instructions are simple and easily readable with a clean syntax which doesn't really involve complex coding. However simple and easy to learn, Python can be used to create the highly interactive programs. This course aims to engage learners with little or even no previous programming experience. The programme for beginners starts with an introduction to the basic fundamentals of Python (expressions, conditionals, and functions). Then, as the course progresses, learners will be able to combine Python commands and modules like Pygame, Matplotlib, Numpy and Tkinter to implement their ideas and develop skills like computational thinking, creativity and problem solving. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.
Python is a programming language with a simple syntax, similar to the English language. It allows developers to write programs with fewer lines than some other programming languages. It can be used in many areas such as web development, mathematics, science, education and general purpose software development. This course aims to demonstrate how Python can be used to create solutions to real-life problems or programs that can be used to faciltate tasks performed at school, in a workplace or at home. It aims to engage not only learners with advanced programming experience but also those who have little or not any experience at all. Creative and critical thinking are continuously encouraged during the lessons. Relevant topics: - Input/Output - Data types and variables - Operators - Lists,tuples, sets - If / else - Loops - Functions - Lambda - Classes/Objects - Inheritance - Iterators - Scope - File handling - Modules - NumPy - Python Maplotlib - Python SciPy The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners. Younger learners may prefer to start with my course entitled “Create fun games and interactive programs in Python”.

This course aims to engage learners with little or no programming experience to create Java programs. Participants are introduced to object-oriented programming concepts, terminology and syntax, and the steps required to create basic Java programs using the Alice and Eclipse interactive development environments. Hand-on practice enables learners to experience the power of computer programming. The JavaTM programming language can be challenging for computer programmers with limited or no experience in object-oriented programming. To provide an easy introduction to Java, Alice is explored first in this course, so that fundamental principles and skills are established using 3D animations in a fun, visually rich environment. When learners become familiar with the concepts of object-oriented programming, they can proceed with the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE), which is widely used in computer programming. It contains a basic workspace and an extendable plug-in system for customising the environment. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

Whether you are asked to create a spreadsheet for statistical analysis, a database of customers, or an engaging presentation of a new product, Microsoft Office is usually your choice. Many users know the basics of what Office can do, but being aware of the more advanced capabilities of Office programs gives you many opportunities for impressive results. This course includes one or more of the following modules: - Documents with Word - Spreadsheets with Excel - E-mail with Outlook - Presentations with PowerPoint - Communication with Teams - Databases with Access If learners are advanced or not interested in any of the above modules, I could happily exclude those modules from the course.

Python and C# Lessons for All Ages! All Levels Welcome! Beginners, Intermediates, Professionals!
Do you want to understand technology at a deeper level? Are you interested in how common applications fundamentally operate? Would you like to improve your logical and analytical skills (not to mention endurance and patience)? Learning to code - a phrase that is all too popular nowadays. Still, dealing with programming languages is kind of inevitable in every sector. There is simply no better language than Python to begin with on your exciting coding journey. And there is also no better way of doing that than by having someone personal to ask questions to. This way you not only don't have to waste time and effort on a stupid typo, but you're also less likely to give up. Effort * Encouragement = Success! I am also very fluent in C#, so if you are struggling with that, then you can also contact me. In fact, I am familiar with C++ and C as well, though not as thoroughly as with C#.
