Prodromos Markopoulos


photo.jpgProdromos Markopoulos comes from Thessaloniki. He holds a Bachelor Degree in Information Applications Technology. Since his early years he was always highly interested in technology and computers. His journey in education started in 2014 with teaching computer science to kids at all levels of education. Teaching highly motivated him to learn new things and dive into a whole new world that will offer opportunities to all children by developing a curriculum that fits from primary to secondary education in computer science, STEM and educational robotics. The biggest change happened when he met with LEGO® Education and the endless possibilities that the LEGO® brick can offer in schools.

Today he is working with Eduk8, the LEGO® Education partner for Greece and Cyprus. Eduk8 gave him the chance to get trained and certified from LEGO® Education in Billund, Denmark the birthplace of the brick. Prodromos is one of the 110 LEGO® Education Academy Certified Teachers Trainers worldwide offering professional development for teachers who wish to acquire 21st century skills and get the most out of the LEGO® System for Learning. Since now he has trained more than 1000 teachers in Greece and he has participated in big events and conferences giving keynote speaking inside and outside of the country. Through working as teacher trainer, he managed to expand his theoretical background on education and child development and gain valuable hands-on experience as he has been able to interact with educators who come from diverse educational frameworks around the globe. Last year he was part of LEGO® Education team in Turkey for an early learning conference and delivered hands-on learning through play workshops at the university of Bosphorus in Istanbul.

Now he is highly interested in early learning and how new technologies and hands-on minds-on approach can prepare preschoolers for school and life by learning through play. Prodromos loves playing so he wants to support play as the driver for learning! With Eduk8 we sing Play – Think – Learn!
