This class is a follow-on to "Game Design with Scratch". Learners MUST have taken one of my Game Design 1 classes. If you feel your learner should skip Game Design 1, you can contact me to set up a private class where I will teach the 3rd game as an evaluation using my "Scratch Studio" class: https://outschool.com/classroom/2623693e-b798-4322-ba80-13f0a7fb1f8b#us38qdu3yX We will be making 2 games - an Escape Game and a Launch Game. We will learn how to add random movement, clones, and...
I focus on the elements of the computational thinking framework. Concepts: sequences, loops, parallelism, events, conditionals, operators and data Practices: experimenting, testing and debugging, reusing and remixing and abstracting Perspectives - creating and expressing, connecting with others, questioning. Students will learn to use variables, cloning and random to make more interesting games.
I have taught Scratch to over 600 learners on OutSchool, and am astounded by the creativity of my students in their Scratch projects.
There is no homework assigned, but students are encouraged to work on their projects between classes if they would like, and will have an opportunity to share with the rest of the class.
The larger the screen display, the better! It is challenging to run Zoom with a shared screen and Scratch at the same time... Learners MUST be able to share their projects through Zoom, which requires at least one device with Zoom and Scratch running. Note: 2 devices can be used, as long as Zoom and Scratch are running on one of them. This is needed when a learner needs help.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
