This practical and engaging workshop will give you the opportunity to explore coding through Scratch and Code.org. Scratch is a visual programming language and online community targeted primarily at children. Using Scratch, students can create their own interactive stories, games and animations, then they can share and discuss their creations with one another. Code.org also uses coding blocks in the same way as Scratch does but is a sequential program designed to teach basic coding.
This workshop gives participants the opportunity to develop their Digital Technologies skills through fun and practical activities. You will also see where Coding sits in with the Digital Technologies Curriculum and, in particular, how Scratch can be integrated across the curriculum as a tool to support learning.
This is an interactive, engaging PD designed to allow participants to enhance their Digital Technologies skills and knowledge and provide practical ideas on how to implement it in the classroom.
