Sue Toole▸ U2: Algorithms & Programming

I chose to complete the CS First Art activity which uses Scratch. I chose this because I have previously had a year 4 class using Scratch but never quite made the time to experiment myself. Two things I noted. First was my reaction as the task got more complex – I began to doubt my ability to be successful. This has made me more aware than before of how necessary it is to build children's risk taking ability and growth mindset. Second was that the more I played the more my mind switched to the logical sequential problem solving mode required. This reaffirms why coding is such an important tool/'learning opportunity for children.
