Teach Programming with Scratch

Scratch Programming

Learn how to write programs in Scratch, the free software written by MIT and used in hundreds of thousands of schools.

This course relies on freely downloadable Scratch software so no software purchase is required.  The course teaches computational thinking in an easy to use environment suitable for all levels from KS1 onwards

Participants will gain the skills needed to teach Games Design and Programming with in the classroom with Scratch, even if you have never done anything similar before. There are no course pre-requisites apart from the ability to use a computer.

Go from absolute beginner to designing simple animations, programs and interactive content suitable for use in the classroom.

The course also includes tips on delivering similar content in your classroom, differential learning, peer evaluation techniques and ideas for projects.

After attending this course you will be able to teach programming with Scratch to your class and you will also be able to create your own interactive whiteboard software or other classroom resources.

In School Course

If you prefer, this course can be held in your school to train your own teachers and teachers from nearby. Many schools  book these sessions and make a profit on the day by charging teachers from nearby to attend.

The course is delivered by David Batty, who has 26 years of classroom experience teaching computing, and has been a programmer for 35 years. David delivers courses for the AQA, Westminster Briefing, Code College and other organisations as required.  He is the UK’s busiest IT teacher trainer having delivered over 100 in-school programming courses to teachers in the past year alone.

Really helpful step by step advice. Useful ideas for lessons and insight into where the children can develop skills. Useful tips on starting with skills rather than going straight into programming. Thanks (Sharon B, Primary School Teacher)
A well structured course which was broken down really well so that all features and tools were explained clearly. Time was allowed for experimenting which also helped as questions could be asked. A really beneficial course! (Natalie C, Primary School Teacher)
Really helpful in understanding how to use Scratch in schools. (Michelle H, Primary Teacher)
