Scratch 2.0 development

The main topics covered in the Teaching programming in primary schools are :-

  • Variables
  • Repetition
  • Selection
  • Sequencing

This afternoon I put together a small scratch program that demonstrates some of these concepts.

Which produces:-

Now includes some user interaction.   Works nicely.  Previous programs produced Spirograph(tm) type patterns.  This program can be easily modified for this.  However my next step is to convert the above to Scratch 3.0 and create worksheet for this project.

One of the reasons am signed up with Educated Recruitment and undertaking various courses on-line is so that I can improve my skills and help with Computer Science / IT / Computational Thinking in primary schools (or maybe even secondary) .

Looking forward to any TA work in the 2018 academic year.
