What is Scratch?
Scratch is visual and interactive programming language. It involves no crazy syntax for young learners to remember. It is like Lego block based which we have to arrange to make something work. Children can see the results of their programming quickly. To work in this language, we don’t require any tools. Everything works online on https://scratch.mit.edu/. The is developed by the MIT Media Lab. It has been translated into 70+ languages, and is used in most parts of the world to teach young learners.
It is a game base approach to teach critical thinking.
What it looks like?
It is very easy to code in Scratch. It is consisting of code blocks with particular functionality.
First thing is to understand problem and find its resolution. Create its logic and design and start programming. Arrange these blocks with logic and that’s all.
We have designed our course in a way, it is easy to understand and implement. In our first part we teach about concept of programming blocks and then show the implementation. After that students apply those concepts and solve the problems. Our aim is to direct them in a way so they start using logic and design.
We want to make programming fun, easy, and addictive, so kids will overcome the fear and improve their confidence for mastering one of the most important survival skills in the 21st century.
Harvard students start coding from “Scratch”, and so should you
If you want to know what the future looks like, take a look at what Harvard is teaching and you’ll know. Harvard University is known as the cradle for future world leaders. What is taught at Harvard today has a huge impact on what the world looks like tomorrow.
