This class will begin with an overview of storytelling with Scratch, followed by an interactive demo and mini-lesson on the concepts and use of transitions, variables and conditional code in Computer Science. We will then work together as each student creates their own stories and develops their characters, settings and plots. They will add artwork and coding, and we will discuss transitions, variables, operators, conditional code, sensors and debugging techniques as we use them. We will also...
Students will learn about transitions, variables, operators, and sensors in the Scratch interface, as well as logical thinking and debugging techniques, as they develop their characters, settings and plots. Students will use their creativity to animate stories reflecting their own style.
This class will not have homework, but students may want to add to their projects after each class is over.
Students will need a Scratch account for this class. If you don't already have a Scratch account, please create one prior to the start of this class.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Scratch is approved by OutSchool for coding classes. Students will need a Scratch account to save their projects for this class and beyond. Scratch has you use your (the parent’s) email address for children under 16, so parental help is needed if a student has to reset their password. Here is Scratch’s info page for parents: https://scratch.mit.edu/parents/. Please note, as with any online account, parental guidance is needed to monitor students' use of their account.
