Uncategorized

Join us on Tuesday the 30th of August for this exciting professional learning opportunity

 

Presented by Mark Stephens of Corpus Christi College with Brett Clarke of ICT Services at the Catholic Education Office of WA

Mark StephensWith the new Australian Curriculum embedding computational thinking into the curriculum from Foundation to Year 10, this is a great opportunity to see how you can facilitate this kind of learning through the block-programming environment called Scratch.

A unique philosophy of learning coding, originating over 20 years ago with the LOGO environment and now translated for the contemporary classroom using Scratch.

This hands-on workshop/master class will provide ideas you can take straight into the classroom.
