Scratch is a coding program that helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.
Best of all, Scratch is free and a great way of introducing coding into your classroom so students can program their own interactive stories, games and animations. It can be used as a flexible, open ended learning tool to meet the requirements of the Australian curriculum and C2C.
This 3-hour workshop aims to assist beginner and intermediate teachers to use Scratch in their teaching. It specifically focuses on activities that address content descriptors in middle to upper primary years of the Digital Technologies subject in the Australian Curriculum.
