A Hands-on Approach to Teaching Computational Thinking and Coding Through the Scratch Programming Environment

Workshop

With 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
