Discover new ways to bring narrative writing instruction in the upper elementary grades into the digital age by using computer programming elements. Students become motivated to produce outstanding narratives through the use of computer programming. In this workshop participants will review the main story structure and elements in teaching writing.
Reach students through their way of encountering the world, in a multimedia format, with digital age learning in the forefront. Using computational thinking skills, students can enhance their knowledge of computer science concepts to increase motivation and the desire to develop well-written narratives. Additionally, student writing will become more structured, more detailed, better developed, and thoughtful. While using logic, analytic thinking, and sequencing, students will problem solve to increase creativity by taking complex writing structures and breaking them into simpler parts using Scratch or Scratch Jr. Combining both fields, writing and computer programming, students will be inspired to go beyond the original assignment, and create written masterpieces that embody storytelling fundamentals in a digital age learning style.
