Flip teaching and Scratch: teaching programming to junior students

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

Friday 25th October, 2013

12:00pm to 12:45pm (EST)

This seminar was born and bred at ECOO. When I heard Mitch Resnick's (Lego Mindstorm professor and guru) keynote on Scratch a number of years ago at ECOO, I became immediately interested in implementing his new visual programming language in ICT lessons at my school. Not only was this programming kid friendly, visual and fun but also the Scratch website provided a safe and secure on-line environment for students to post and remix their creations.
Digital tinkering and playing are vital 21st century skills and students grow in confidence when their imaginative ideas and creations come to life through programming. This seminar covers my flip teaching approach to lessons and how that approach benefits students and helps educators differentiate lessons, resources and discussions with students to help them succeed and learn. I will showcase the strategies I implement for a student-centered approach to programming and provide resources for educators to implement Scratch programming to a variety of ages and in a number of different areas of the curriculum.
