From May 7 to May 13, 2018
Josep Ferràndiz studied computer science at the School of Engineering (Campus Sabadell) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). He has worked as a technology teacher in secondary school since 1997. Nowadays he is working in innovation and teacher training for the Education Department of Catalonia and as a collaborator with the technological scope of CESIRE (Support center for Innovation and Educational Research).

This Faber stage is a great opportunity for meeting with Snap4Arduino and Microblocks teams. In collaboration with Joan Guillén, our main goals are develop and document Snap! and devices comunication (Arduino, ESP, Picaxes, Legos…), especialy 32 bit microcontroller boards, create libraries to facilitate work at school in CS elements like IoT, video motion detection, I2C control and design a roadmap for the evolution of Snap! and Snap4Arduino projects with the new appereance Microblocks.
Robolot and its training activity for teachers on Saturday May 12 will be an important event to make diffusion and share experiences with the educative community.
