There are 5 modules in this course.
This module covers the basic concepts of Scratch programming and its uses in the primary classroom in particular to support the skills and content of the mathematics curriculum. Participants start to write their first Scratch programme.
Some of the mathematical Scratch concepts are introduced, including the use of Scratch operators (“round” to round numbers). Discussion on the use of Scratch programming to support number, place value, shape & space takes place.
In this module participants commence the development of numeracy focussed Scratch projects and lesson activities which incorporate images and sounds. The use of Scratch across the curriculum is explored.
More on Scratch concepts, how they support the mathematics curriculum and how to demonstrate patterns and sequences in an innovative way using Scratch.
Participants finalise and share their project and lesson activities for use in the classroom which focus on numeracy development. The application of Scratch across other curricular areas and how to get started with Scratch in the classroom is discussed. Participants are introduced to the e-Learning Action plan as part of the whole school planning process for e-Learning and create an e-Learning action plan for numeracy development.
