Teacher PD Event Information: 6 Teacher PD Hours
Scratch is a block based programming language developed by M.I.T’s Media Lab to make programming simple enough to be taught to primary school children.
Instead of intricate text commands, programs with Scratch are assembled using drag and drop colour coded blocks.
These attributes make Scratch the ideal low entry high ceiling application for all students and teachers who are undertaking programming for the first time. The basics Scratch can be learned in minutes and intermediate applications which we will cover in this workshop include:
- Visual output programs that create colourful art designs
- Quiz programs which train students in math and memorisation
- Games with dynamics of shooting and chasing
- Plotting of graphs and equations
- Simulation equations of projectiles (like the Angry Birds Game)
NOTE: Lesson plans and learning resources for each activity are complementary with the workshop. final assessments.
