The learning intention for this lesson was to become familiar with the software 'Scratch'. In particular to become confident at using the drawing tools within Scratch.
What I have noticed when using scratch over the last couple of years, is that when kids begin to use the templates and clip-art style images, that they lose interest and don't stay as invested in their projects. Because of this, I have found that insisting that they draw their own art for ALL projects, has been far more successful.
Things to note
This episode is structured differently. Rather than a filmed lesson that I taught in the classroom, I have tried to talk to the video so that you can see my thinking behind the lesson that I have taught - a different perspective.
