How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem. Develop plans that describe a program’s sequence of events, goals, and expected outcomes.  Identify and fix errors using a systematic process. Using correct terminology, describe steps taken, and choices made during the iterative process of program development. Create several computational artifacts for practical intent, personal expression, or to address a societal issue.
Great teachers form strong relationships with their students by engaging them in the subjects they are passionate about. I have always been a logical thinker who enjoys science, math, technology, and engineering both for work and play. 

I worked as an engineer for companies like Frito-Lay, Anheuser-Busch, Amgen as a consultant for many years improving their systems with automation and equipment. Once I became a parent, I began teaching extra-curricular classes as a way to have more time at home, but stay involved in subjects that bring me joy. 

Realizing that by being warm, professional, and enthusiastic, I am able to engage students. My creative lessons and strong classroom presence help build student confidence while increasing interest in subjects that may otherwise seem intimidating. 
Learners can continue to practice outside of the class. Homework is optional. Any unfinished classwork may be completed for homework. Children will be encouraged to explore coding on their own. Some weeks will have handouts, worksheets, and homework. This is not required but offered if you want to add more information on the topic of the week. I will occasionally assign some videos to watch to further their understanding of the topic. Videos will not be watched during class time.
It is strongly encouraged to have two devices. One device for Zoom (laptop, desktop computer, smartphone or tablet) and a second device for coding BEFORE CLASS, please be sure to have Scratch 3 installed on the device you will be coding with. This will save us class time if everyone is ready to go when class starts. Computer users, please download Scratch at https://scratch.mit.edu/download If a student is using a tablet/iPad, please be sure your student knows how to FIND https://scratch.mit.edu/, and LOG IN with their own username and password. This should not be shared with the class. Please remind them to keep it confidential. An external keyboard and mouse will be REQUIRED for all the functions to work properly.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Remember to keep your private information private - for example, no last names, home cities, or gaming handles shared within the classroom. Please review with your student before class.

For students using Scratch at https://scratch.mit.edu/ a user account should be created by parents in order to save students' progress. In creating an account, certain personally identifying information, generally consisting of the student’s or parents' name and e-mail address, must be provided to Scratch's website operator in order to create an account. Projects are UNSHARED by default and user information is not shared within the Outschool classroom. Scratch does not make private account information available to anyone. For more information, please see Scratch's Privacy Policy located here: https://scratch.mit.edu/privacy_policy

An alternative to creating an account is to download the Scratch 3 app found here: https://scratch.mit.edu/download
This will save all work locally to your computer and your student will not be able to share with the online community until you decide to create an online account.

For added engagement, we will be using activities in Nearpod.
