Introduction to Scratch for Junior Cycle Coding

Introduction to Scratch for Junior Cycle Coding

This 2 hour-long event, is aimed at providing an introduction to Scratch for post-primary school teachers. Scratch is a popular block-based programming language and is the staple language of the Junior Cycle short course in coding (covering aspects of Strand 1 and 3). While we will cover content the goal is to work on how to deliver such content in the class, basing our approaches on “use, modify, create” and PRIMM with suitable take-home activities. You DO NOT need to have any prior programming knowledge to attend this event. 

The event will aim to cover:

  • Introduction to Scratch and Block-based programming
  • Inputs
  • Variables
  • Strings
  • Conditional Statements
  • Iteration
