Academics: Grammar learns to code
Updated: Nov 1, 2019
This month, Canada’s Learning Code team mobile fleet came back to to visit Grammar's middle and Sr. School students. The mobile fleet “travels across the country to bring hands-on, interactive technology education to youth and adults across Canada” (Canada Learning Code).
Our students were introduced to a programming language called Scratch. Through the Scratch website, students designed their own video “escape” game and chose characters for the “chaser” and “chasee” and a scene for the video game.
Scratch is a programming language and an online community where students can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As students create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively and reason systematically.
