Description

Full day of Scratch: MIT/Harvard Syllabus

This one day course has been offered due to the number of requests by teachers and principal who want a full day of pure Scratch training. It will be run on a Saturday to facilitate teachers and principals to travel and give the attendees the tools, skills and confidence to:

  1. Implement and advance computing and coding in their classroom.
  2. For those that are already delivering computing and coding this course will provide a fully approved MIT/Harvard syllabus to allow teachers to expand on their current skills portfolio.

What will be covered?

  • Prepare for the culture of creative computing by exploring possibilities and setting up technical infrastructure
  • Get comfortable with the key computational concept of sequence through a series of activities that provide varying levels of structure
  • Play with visuals and audio in these activities focused on animation, art, and music.
  • Create new interactive worlds through collaborative storytelling. Begin by developing characters, learning to code conversations, and then situating those characters and conversations in shifting scenes.
  • Connect fundamental game mechanics such as score and levels to key computational concepts, such as variables, operators, and conditionals.
  • Further exploring advanced concepts or helping others by designing new activities or debugging challenges.
  • Put all of the computational concepts and practices into action by designing and developing a project of your own through iterative cycles of planning, making, and sharing.
