What does this course entail?
Using the Scratch Language (developed by MIT’s Media Lab), we will develop video games, animations, simulations, and interactive applications. Inspired by constructivist approaches to learning (i.e. learning by experimenting with one’s own experiences and ideas), the activities emphasise Computational Thinking concepts – which are essential to all programming languages and are central to problem solving in all realms of life.
How long is the course?
Six Weeks long, starting 15 May 2016
