Summer 2018: Online Computer Programming Class for Kids

This summer, I will be teaching an online, interactive programming class through the Classical Learning Resource Center (CLRC). This course will be delivered online, but we will meet “in-person” once a week. This programming class for kids will focus on creative design using Scratch, the icon-based language developed by MIT.

I have taught Scratch for a number of years, both in-person, and through my self-published asynchronous classes. I am excited to try my hand at virtual, real-time classes.  We’ll be meeting for four Wednesdays from 4:30 – 6:00 PM (Eastern time), starting June 6. We’ll meet via Adobe Connect and the emphasis will be on introductory, but creative programming concepts.

We may do some storyboarding, or pre-planning, if there’s time.

I am especially happy to be working with the CLRC. For the past year-and-a-half, I have been a CLRC parent. My older son has taken two CLRC courses over his homeschool career. He would have taken more, but he’s in school this year — a perfect fit for my extroverted child. However, my younger son can’t wait until he is old enough to take a CLRC class. The teachers are fabulous and accessible. Plus, my son loved the real-time interactions.
