Coding or programming is a skill that is becoming as important as reading and writing.
In this age of technology it is important to know the language of computers, so we can tell them what to do. In this hands-on workshop students will learn programming by making a simple animated game.
Who can attend: Students in class 4-5
Computer science develops students’ computational and critical thinking skills and shows them how to create, not simply consume, new technologies. Whether or not students pursue computer science in school and their careers, these skills lay a foundation for success. It has a broad applicability to students’ unique interests and build an understanding of how tech shapes their lives. CS prepares students for 21st century work and life.
In this workshop by Google, teachers gain skills in Scratch, teaching using Blended Learning. They will be introduced to CS First (http://g.co/csfirst) an educational program that has been designed to introduce programming and computer science to students from class 4 - 8 in a creative and collaborative environment. Students learn by watching video lectures of Google Educators and practice hands-on on Scratch (A fun modern day computing language developed by MIT). CS First is a free computer science curriculum that makes programming easy to teach and fun to learn!
Speaker Bio: Parth Nigam is working on scaling contemporary computing education , specifically focussed on CS First. He is based in Bangalore and is a Computer Science Engineer by training.
