This website is a designed for students and teachers. The goal is to develop skills and knowledge by active learning. Scratch is the tool I have chosen to be the vehicle for this learning. No prior knowledge is required. Everything is self paced. One activity builds on another. I have used the basic Scratch cards developed by the Scratch team to kick off each project.
What will you learn? Some of the key ideas will be based on computer programming and computational thinking. At the same time there will be links made directly to the New Zealand Curriculum in areas such as Mathematics, English . These links will be made explicitly to enable teachers to make links between the use of Scratch and the curriculum. Therefore making it easy to integrate some of these projects into a teachers planning within every day units of work.
