SCRATCH TIME - Time for Scratch Mentoring: Tutorials From the default Costumes Folder of Scratch, you can find simple two different image of moving objects. I will pick flying bat for my example. You can use many kind animals within that folder. The technique is to switch the display of our object's costumes so that we can imagine that it is moving. You can do this by using this simple block A TeachNetUK Project: 6 Lessons on Getting Started with Scratch 6 lesson plans and teaching materials This site lays out a framework for six lessons that introduce Scratch. The lessons were originally intended for high school students in the U.K., but they could easily be adapted for younger or older students. The website also provides worksheets and PowerPoint presentations that accompany the lessons. The high-level overview of the main Scratch interface may be especially useful to beginners.

PicoCricket - Invention kit that integrates art and technology The PicoCricket Kit has been discontinued. We apologize for any inconvenience. A PicoCricket is a tiny computer that can make things spin, light up, and play music. You can plug lights, motors, sensors, and other devices into a PicoCricket, then program them to react, interact, and communicate. Meet the PicoCricket. For example, you can make a cat and program it to purr when someone pets it. ICT Guy » Scratch Resources Here is my collection of resources that I’ve found useful when working with students and teachers to create scratch projects. Please use the comments to inform me of any other good resources. Happy scratching Scratch ‘How to’ from MIT This is where you will find all the MIT Scratch resources. This is the number one stop for all things related to Scratch!

Programming with Scratch Software: The benefits for year six learners Author: Julia D Briggs This paper considers the benefits of Computer Science to the individual and specifically the benefits to Year Six children of using Scratch software (Scratch, ca. 2007). 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 Best Websites to Learn How to Write Code The best tutorials and websites where you can learn how to write code in PHP, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Python and all the other popular programming languages. The Learn to Code movement has picked up momentum worldwide and that is actually a good thing as even basic programming skills can have a major impact. If you can teach yourself how to write code, you gain a competitive edge over your peers, you can think more algorithmically and thus can tackle problems more efficiently. Don’t just download the latest app, help redesign it. Don’t just play on your phone, program it. — Obama.

Even kids these days pick up an iPad as and figure out apps like how a fish takes to water. With kids becoming more tech-savvy as time goes on, there’s no reason why they can’t learn the basics behind their favorite technology. That’s right, we’re saying that there’s no reason why you can’t teach your kids programming from a young age. This will not only develop the analytical programming skills of kids at early age but will also help them get an idea that whether they want to become a programmer in future. Here we’ve put together for you 10 educational tools that can be used to teach and develop programing skills in kids.

The Royal Society of Edinburgh Resources Computing Science → Mobile App Development → This resource, produced by the RSE and the BCS Academy of Computing, provides a course in programming for mobile devices. It exemplifies a subset of the Computing Science-related outcomes of Curriculum for Excellence at Levels 3 & 4 and beyond (specifically, in this case, National 4 Computing Science). It explores new paradigms in Computing such as mobile technologies and new interfaces, whilst providing ample opportunity for inter-disciplinary linkage. Exercises are provided with sample answers and there are many additional activities which can be used to both broaden and deepen the topic. Above all, this resource should not be seen as prescriptive.

Learn to Program with Scratch For a limited time, use the coupon code LEARNSCRATCH for 40% off. 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. Southend Linux User Group Programming scratch The Scratch software was launched in 2007. 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.

Letters Letters is one of the simplest Scratch applications and is recommended by the team at the MIT Lifelong Learning Group as suitable for one of the first projects created by new Scratch programmers. The idea is to place the letters of your name onto the stage and use your own knowledge of Scratch to program different behaviour into each sprite which happens when you cliick on the sprite. Once you have investigated the letters by clicking on them, you press the space bar and the letters will all return to their original positions. The Scratch Cards are useful for ideas for programming each letter adn there are endless behaviours you can program for each sprite from just spinning the letter around to playing sounds and drawing shapes.
