BCS Certificate in CST 8 Week Scratch Programming Online Course Webinar Series 19:00 - 20:30

This 8-week course will help primary teachers to work towards developing a programming project in Scratch. The courses run on regular weekday evenings each term. Each course takes place online using the Certificate Learning Environment and consists of weekly scheduled webinars with one of our expert e-tutors who will guide you through the weekly tasks.

Topics will include: computational thinking, unplugged pedagogy, using programmable toys to teach fundamental concepts, and programming constructs and debugging will be explored through tasks and lesson activities.

Ideas for programming projects will be explored and support provided to develop projects. Scratch will be introduced and used as the programming language for most activities. Progression, assessment and alternative programming languages will also be discussed.
