Content and Overview
Suitable for students age 7+, teachers, and parents who want to teach the fundamentals of visual programming to their children. Each section includes exercises, so you'll be able to put your newly learned skills to immediate use. This is NOT a lecture about every single block in Scratch with a boring explanation! It challenges the user by going through real-life examples.
Starting with the installation of the free Scratch program and Adobe Air, this course will take you through the basic understanding of the coordinate and rotation system, motion and sensing, and character (sprite) manipulation. With the basics mastered, the course moves on to more advanced subjects including logic controls (if/then/else and forever loops), serial and parallel processing and dynamic interaction between sprites. By creating detailed projects, you'll establish a strong understanding of programming concepts and how they work in Scratch. Upon completion of the course you will have the knowledge to create your own video games, educational tutorials, and presentations using Scratch. This is great for students who want to create powerful visual aids to complement an oral presentation or book report.
