In my EDTC 300 class we were given the task to code. This brings back bad memories because I took CS 100 and I still have no idea what happened in that class. I got through it and forgot everything about coding.
I went an tried Scratch for the first time. Since this website is supposed to be used by children so I thought that his site would be easy to navigate. I’m not going to lie, I felt stupid when using this site. For me I did not understand how to use it, even after watching the explanation video.
I think it’s important for students to code, like I think it’s important for students to try new things. If students are interested in coding I’m not going to stop them, I just don’t understand coding. Maybe if I have a student in the future who knows how to code they can teach me!
