Using Scratch to Introduce My Students to Programming!
I need to attend the Pathfinders Institute in Bloomington, IN.
This project expired on June 2, 2018.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
Being allowed to attend the Pathfinders Institute will help me learn the Scratch program inside out so that I can, in turn, facilitate my students into becoming confident with Scratch programming.
My students deserve every opportunity to help them develop into productive, energetic 21st Century learners.
Computer programmers are in extremely high demand today, and I want my students to have doors open to them because of their strong programming background. Obtaining a successful career is an important step in building a full life as adults!
When I return from the Pathways conference with multitudinous new ideas and lessons, my students will strongly benefit from all the wonderful things I have received as a result of attending the conference. One of the activities that I will do is during my anti-bullying unit. The students will develop their own bullying scenario using Scratch. They will code the scenario with a viable solution that would be something that they could use if ever involved in a bullying situation.
With all of the amazing new and exciting ideas that I will receive as a result of having attended the conference, I will be able to further motivate my students in the areas of computer programming.
I want to give them every opportunity to be successful in their future. It is vitally important to expose my students to programming languages to better prepare them as 21st Century learners.areers.
