Description

Creative Computing is all about paving the path for our kids to reach their full potential of creative critical thinking skills. It empowers kids with the knowledge, practices, and fundamental literacies that kids need to create the types of dynamic and interactive computational media that they enjoy in their daily lives.

Engaging in the creation of computational artifacts prepares kids for more than careers as computer scientists or programmers. It supports their development as computational thinkers – individuals who can draw on computational concepts, practices, and perspectives in all aspects of their lives, across disciplines and contexts.

There are many different tools that can be used for creative computing. In this course, we use Scratch, which is a free computer programming language available at http://scratch.mit.edu. With Scratch, people can create a wide variety of interactive media projects – animations, stories, games, and more – and share those projects with others in an online community.

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

This course emphasizes the following principles:

Creating – Offer opportunities for learners to engage in designing and making, not just listening, observing, and using;

Offer opportunities for learners to engage in activities that are personally meaningful and relevant;

Offer opportunities for learners to engage in interactions with others as audience, coaches, and co-creators;

Offer opportunities for learners to review and rethink their creative practices.

ESTIMATED TIME TO COMPLETE: 30 Hours
