An interactive workshop introducing you to the Scratch programming environment and taking you through the concepts of sequence, repetition and selection through a series of camel related challenges.
You will need to:
be registered with Barefoot and logged into https://www.barefootcomputing.org/
have access to scratch on their device https://scratch.mit.edu/
have access to watch videos on Vimeo https://vimeo.com/
This webinar will focus on teaching how computers work and the numeracy and mathematical principles that underpin this. This will be a 60 minute workshop with interactive opportunities for teachers to join in and try out some of the activities suggested for learners.
The session will identify Numeracy & Mathematics Es and Os that can be used to plan and deliver the learning over a series of lessons. Attendees should be more confident about the mathematical concepts that underpin computers and computing, and be aware of ‘off-the-shelf’ resources that can be used with learners.
You can have a look at some of these ideas in this series of blog posts:
