ScratchJr is a free app for young children which allows them to program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the computer.
In this workshop, we’ll explore how ScratchJr can be used to nurture literacy, problem-solving, and imagination. We’ll walk you through an example lesson and explain key terms like sequence, loops, and parallel execution as we apply these concepts along the way. You’ll leave with your very own rhyming animation example, and a clearer understanding of how to implement this same lesson and tool with your own class.
*You do not need a tablet to participate in this session.
