Scratch Jr. Coding Club - Advanced
Sara Moore (she/her)
A weekly club for those who are ready for more of a challenge with Scratch Jr
A coding club billed the Sunday before class. Withdraw anytime, for young coders to share and express themselves as they feel comfortable with their knowledge of ScratchJr. *********Students should have a strong understanding of the ScratchJr interface prior to joining. Must take Beginner Coding Club class prior to joining: https://outschool.com/classes/scratchjr-coding-club-for-beginners-UOX98nda#usPFVfH0j3 The student should -have fine motor skills and able to drag and drop...
Students will improve their understanding of programming logic, as well as, 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.
iPad with ScratchJr app installed would be best. Chromebook/Laptop is the next best but will require mouse skills if not a touchscreen. Android tablers have caused the most frustration with students as the touch calibration is off. This can be especially frustrating when drawing. Feel free to test your device in advance. When drawing, the "ink" should appear exactly where your finger/stylus/mouse pointer makes contact with the screen. It should not be offset by any distance. It is encouraged to have two devices. One device for watching the recording and a second device for coding. With a single device, a student will be switching from the video to the ScratchJr app and back and forth. For younger learners, this may cause some frustrations.
