Presented by Martin Levins, President of the ACCE
Aimed at those involved in Stages 3/4, and using prompts from the SA Year 3 curriculum, this workshop will look at Technology in context, using the programming language Scratch to enable students to demonstrate their learning about diverse communities.
Once we get a grip on the Scratch environment, we’ll look at using MakeyMakeys to make even more fun stuff.
No programming knowledge is assumed.
Intended Audience: All those concerned with the Australian Curriculum – Digital Technologies and Australian Curriculum – ICT General Capabilities, – Stage 3/ 4, Primary, Middle School
