Gaming in lessons?!

scratchTo ensure your Computing is having the maximum impact on learning, our expert team of teachers will work with you every step of the way to effectively embed your technology into the curriculum, whether you need training, planning support or teaching cover.

Scratch remains a popular topic for teacher training. A piece of free software developed by MIT, Scratch allows students to create 2D games in a drag and drop programming environment. It is ideal for introducing students of all ages to the basic concepts of programming through the medium of computer games. Once pupils master the basics they can very easily create games based around any subject area.

Why use Scratch?

  • It’s free, easy to use, engages students and offers many cross curricular opportunities across a range of subjects
  • It is a great way of developing students’ analytical and problem-solving skills
  • There are very strong links to maths and D&T
