From Scratch to Text-based Programming

30 November, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Scratch is well regarded as a great way for children to learn to program. At some point, your students will need to move from block-based, to text-based programming, to achieve the higher Digital Technologies outcomes. This workshop is a gentle introduction to using Javascript and Python by replicating simple applications built in Scratch first (eg Heads or Tails).

The workshop is intended for teachers of years 7-8, and teachers of years 5-6 would also benefit. No prior experience is necessary and there is a series of follow-up video tutorials to work on afterwards to reinforce your learning.

Presenter: Jason Vearing, Advance Queensland Community Digital Champion nominee

Please RSVP at Eventbrite, admission will be FREE for all attendees.
