You already know that programming is a new literacy that can be mastered from the age of 6!
With Scratch Jr, young children (6-7 years old) can program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they learn to solve logical problems, develop projects, and creatively express their thoughts using a computer.
Frequent changes of activities, a lot of team games, individual experimentation with the computer, pair and group work.
Working on the computer takes 30% of the time; the remaining 70% is for variations with games for developing the skills of Four C’s (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity).
There are a tutor and an assistant of the tutor at each lesson. They work with a group of 8-12 children.
The result of the module is a child's own interactive story or multi-level game, with fictional characters and a plot, that can be shown to friends and relatives.
Scratch Jr is a programming environment with a clear interface and colorful design that makes coding for younger students an easy and fun process.
This program is designed for personal computers, Android and iOS tablets, and is suitable for the youngest. Your child will learn the basics of programming and design, even if they have not yet learned to read.
Scratch Jr module at KIBERone CyberSchool will open up a lot of possibilities: children will draw in a graphic editor, come up with storylines and independently create interactive stories, games and animations based on them.
