Scratch:Digital Story

The Scratch:Digital Story course is designed specifically for children of ages 5 - 7.

At this age, Pre-schoolers tend to be curious and expressive through story telling. This is an excellent opportunity to introduce Scratch, a drag-and-drop coding platform for pre-schoolers to sequence events, actions and ultimately form story lines. We expose the child to elements of creative writing such as plot development, vivid setting and perspective.

Why Scratch?

Cognitive Development

At Ages 4-5, a child's thoughts are still fairly concrete (Piaget). Thus a platform used to teach children of that age must be able to modify its context easily.

Scratch allows children to alter the environment and context that their characters are in through background and scenes.

Motor Skills

One challenge when exposing younger children to coding is that they are still new to the keyboard and mouse!

Scratch is one of the few coding platforms designed with large easy-to-click interfaces, that provide excellent mouse training.

Visual

Scratch is the most visual and colorful of the coding platforms. This aspect is often neglected by coders but not educators.

The vibrant colors and distinctive shapes provide the necessary stimulus for younger children to remain engaged and capture their imagination.

Character Based

Story telling requires people and characters. This is where Scratch is significantly superior compared with the rest of the coding platforms.

With many easily animated characters to pick from, Scratch makes it easy for children to create their own narratives.
