Programming with Scratch Software: The benefits for year six learners

It is based on case studies of the software being introduced to classes in three schools in May and June 2013. A major driver for the change from an ICT to a computing curriculum in England for September 2014 was the needs of industry and the economic well-being of the country. ‘The UK had been let down by an Information Communication Technology (ICT) curriculum that neglects the rigorous Computer Science and programming skills which high-tech industries need’.

(Gove, 2012). The ‘Shut down or restart?’ This paper considers the benefits to the individual rather than to society. Overall picture Twelve benefits from programming with Scratch (figure 1) were identified from the case studies and eight factors which contributed to those benefits (figure 3).

Learn to Program with Scratch

Scratch is a fun, free, beginner-friendly programming environment where you connect blocks of code to build programs. While most famously used to introduce kids to programming, Scratch can make computer science approachable for people of any age. Rather than type countless lines of code in a cryptic programming language, why not use colorful command blocks and cartoon sprites to create powerful scripts? In Learn to Program with Scratch, author Majed Marji uses Scratch to explain the concepts essential to solving real-world programming problems. The labeled, color-coded blocks plainly show each logical step in a given script, and with a single click, you can even test any part of your script to check your logic. Southend Linux User Group. Programming scratch The Scratch software was launched in 2007.

Southend Linux User Group

It is free, and is available in nearly 50 languages. The scratch home site has lots of programming examples, many written by young adults, (8 - 16 years) so perhaps the first impression is that Scratch capabilities are limited to that age range. They are not, the Scratch language has a serious side to, as you might expect, since it was developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Media Lab.

Teaching Kids To Think Using Scratch. I’ve been teaching Scratch to my students lately, and it’s made me remember just how much I enjoy dabbling with programming. I’m really not much of a code monkey , but I do enjoy writing programs, telling the computer what I want it to do, and then having that feeling of mastery when it actually does what I tell it to do!

I heard a lot about Scratch before I actually started using it myself… people kept telling me how good it was, but for some reason I never really got around to trying it myself. When I finally did take a look at it, I couldn’t believe I waited so long to check it out! It’s a GREAT piece of software that all kids should spend some time learning how to use.

I’d encourage you to NOT make the same mistake I did, and wait so long before looking at it. The Finch. Scratch Help - About Scratch. Scratch. How to use Scratch.
