The module aims to let students to plan simple programs in Scratch by controlling actions of a sprite and giving a sequence of instructions. By introducing algorithmic and logical reasoning through the use of physical activities, students are able to predict what a sprite will do and debug a simple program.
The sequence created need not be complex. The students’ plans should demonstrate how they have understood the objective and the intended structure of their program. The flowchart will be linear. The solution need not be a sophisticated program. Moving a sprite between two specified locations would be sufficient. For assessment, programs will be provided as a flowchart. Students should make their prediction by working through the logic of the program.
Students could program the sprite to move along a route, visiting certain locations and/or avoiding an obstacle. For assessment, programs will be provided as a flowchart. Provide students with a short program with one simple error to correct.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of Initial Steps Stage 2 Module 1 : Starting Programming.
Cambridge Certification is available at TWO stages.
