After my experiences with Scratch it is definitely a resource that you could use with students. I did find parts of it challenging, however this is because it is completely new to me. If students were introduced to programming at an early stage it would not appear so daunting to them.
Katrina Elliott's comment, May 13, 2013 6:15 AM
I found that it would be a suitable design resource for high school students. I found it challenging, however very engaging and addictive. I am unsure how this would benefit all students, as it was difficult in some areas to program and get perfect. Personally, I wouldn't use this program within my classroom.
Amanda Rogers's comment, May 14, 2013 5:00 AM
I agree Katrina, this progam would be too hard for most primary school students to grasp

I think students would find this tool very engaging and it is a great way to differentiate assessments allowing students a choice of presentation tools.
Kaaren Sweeney's comment, May 30, 2013 12:59 AM
I think this has the potential to be an excellent tool for the lassroom. Not only would it allow for differentiation as Jenni had stated, but would allow ESL students an avenue to express themselves through various means other than just writing.

20 Tips To Promote A Self-Directed Classroom Culture

20 Tips To Promote A Self-Directed Classroom Culture

 

It’s an age-old saying, “Give a man a fish, and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and feed him for a lifetime.”

 

What separates good teachers from the excellent ones? The excellent ones are handing out fishing poles; creating a culture in the classroom of independence and self-reliance.

 

These students don’t just recite facts or regurgitate information- they have learned how to learn. They know that if the answer isn’t in front of them, they have the tools to do the investigation and research.
