Scratch Project for the Women International Day (March 8th 2018)

20 februari 2018 16:16
Content Teaser We have a special project for the Women International Day! Join us and remix our project with your students! :) Hello Scratch Educators!
Getting the students to engage creatively on scratch projects has been a priority for our team of educators at EPAM Systems. Recently, we added another layer to that engagement when we created a Social Impact Curriculum that that marries the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals to our Scratch classes.  EPAM Systems is focused on teaching Scratch classes that enhance the student's awareness of global issues, connect them with the Scratch community, and empower project-based learning that is fueled by students own creative interests.

Teacher-to-Teacher: Take a Chance, Code a Cookie

15 februari 2018 22:58
Content Teaser Code a Cookie...It’s been messy, colorful, and playful — everything I would want in a programming experience. Would I categorize this activity as creative computing? Absolutely.


Dear #CSEdWeek Community,

When I’m asked how I came into my role as an Instructional Technology Specialist, my response typically includes the facts that my mother is teacher and my father is an engineer. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a house filled with books, school supplies, computers, electronic bits and pieces, and tools. I remember taking things apart with no expectation of ever putting them back together as originally intended.

Content Teaser I am looking down the hallway. As kids pass in front of me... I wonder: Am I serving these kids to the best of my ability? How can I teach them...coding... when I don’t even know how to do it myself?



Dear #CSEdWeek Community,

It is 2015 and I am looking down the hallway. As kids pass in front of me, all I can feel is heartache. I wonder: Am I serving these kids to the best of my ability? How can I teach them 21st century skills, like coding and robotics, when I don’t even know how to do it myself? These kids need to learn how to code — it will make such a difference in their lives. I have to do something!

Scratch Mini Tutorials

29 januari 2018 18:34
Original Author:  Chris Pautler Content Teaser Do your students want to learn about a particular block or skill in Scratch. These videos will hopefully help free up some of your time and give them a chance to show their creativity. I find that different students want to know how to do different things with their programming.  I found myself either teaching information to large groups that was not helpful to many of them, or teaching the same thing over and over to individuals.  So, I basically made these lessons so they can watch them on their own.  I made them with Loom and put them on YouTube.  Here's a bunch of links to them.  Hope you find them helpful!

One of the biggest problems young programmers / engineers face is a lack of procedural knowledge. Working together, an experienced computer science teacher and a professional programmer, have found efficient ways to develop procedural thinking. These materials cater for educational professionals, who teach computer science to schoolchildren.

Our presentation will answer the following questions:

1.What is procedural thinking and why is it so important?
2. Stages and Аccents. Resource Files Other Files:  procedural_thinking_-_the_ways_of_obtaining.pptx Links:  Procedural thinking Examples Featured:  Not-Featured

ITALIANO_Iniziare con Scratch

3 november 2017 12:44
Original Author:  Karen Brennan, Carmelo Presicce Content Teaser Piccola collezione di risorse per iniziare a presentare Scratch ai vostri alunni.

E' sempre difficile decidere come iniziare a introdurre Scratch in classe.

 

I bambini hanno modi diversi di imparare, c'è chi ama sperimentare senza vincoli e chi ha bisogno di più struttura e indicazioni. Come fare allora a introdurli a Scratch in modo utile divertente per tutti?

 

Spesso i ragazzi hanno bisogno di sperimentare in prima persona la logica della programmazione (le sequenze di comandi) e di esplorare a piccoli passi il funzionamento dell'interfaccia di Scratch prima di poter realizzare un progettone completo! ;)
