Description

This workshop is for educators who wish to develop their confidence and expertise using Scratch in their classroom. It will include an overview of basic coding concepts that will be used in the hands-on creation of Scratch projects for the classroom. You will get the chance to develop your own projects and explore projects which have been made by other users. The workshop will highlight the links to the Digital Technologies Curriculum. 

Scratch is a powerful coding program that can be used to create digital tools and projects for student and teacher use. This workshop aims to highlight how Scratch can be used in the classroom from a teaching and learning point of view. 

The day will include plenty of opportunities to learn the basic functions of coding, explore the potential of Scratch and create some projects for you to use in your classroom. This workshop would be most beneficial for educators who wish to develop their understanding of coding concepts, integrate ICT into their classroom and explore the possibilities of using Scratch as a teaching and learning tool.
