Event description

Description

  • The National Scratch Conference 2018 is generously funded for the second year by Meath County Council LEO and is again supported by Navan Education Centre.
  • The day will consist of 3 hands-on workshops, each following a short general introduction. There will be two workshops before lunch and one after lunch. For each, the group will divide into three appropriate age groups 6-8, 9-12 and 14 years and upwards. The day will end with a closing discussion.
  • The Conference will underpin the goals of the Department of Education and Skills’ “DIGITAL STRATEGY FOR SCHOOLS 2015 – 2020 ENHANCING TEACHING”. We are holding this 2nd National Scratch Conference in June 2018 in the realisation of the need to promote and explore how best to implement Computational Thinking and Coding for all stakeholders in the wider community in Irish Education.
  • The Conference will also underpin the coding objective of Pillar 1 of the CREATIVE IRELAND PROGRAMME which states: “by 2022 every child in Ireland will have access to tuition and participation in art, music, drama and coding.
  • The 2nd National Scratch Conference 2018 is an assertion that Ireland has the opportunity and the capacity to boldly embrace educational advancement in a creative and innovative manner. Ready-Steady-Code fine-line grids were developed by an Irish teacher and are now included in SCRATCH by the the makers of Scratch in the MIT Media Lab. The Conference will show how Scratch +Ready-Steady-Code is the Magic Mix that makes coding easier and fun to learn.
  • The registration fee for the day will be €75 (bring a friend at a discounted total for two €120). Fee includes full carvery lunch, Conference pack with unique RSC SCRATCH training resources and the SCRATCH staff-room mug that puts Coding in the Conversation.
  • FÓGRA do Scoileanna Lán Ghaelacha. Is féidir ríomhcláru (cód) i SCRATCH trí Ghaeilge. Beidh an Muga Scratch ar fáil in nGaeilge nó i m Béarla. Bí ann chun é a bhreith ar ais chun do scoile leat.
  • Please bring a charged laptop, your charger and a mouse. If possible install the Scratch offline editor at scratch.mit.edu/download We look foward to meeting you at the Conference.
