ScratchJr: Tinker with Code
The ScratchJr course introduces coding concepts to the young imaginative minds. Sometimes referred to as the post-iPad generation, young children born in this age have gained proficiency and comfort in smartphones and tablets by toddlers age. ScratchJr is an iPad app that teaches blocks-based programming, developed by the MIT Media Lab.
Students start with basic commands including moving sprites forward and turning left/right, then build their own fun stories and characters through sequences, loops, conditionals. Students are encouraged to construct creative games and detail the steps to bring their imagination to reality.
