What is creative computing?
Creative computing centres on creativity and computational thinking, which emphasises the knowledge, practices, and fundamental literacies that young people need to create the types of dynamic and interactive computational media that they enjoy in their daily lives.
Engaging in the creation of computational artifacts not only prepares young people for careers as computer scientists or programmers, it also supports young people’s development as computational thinkers – individuals who can draw on computational concepts, practices, and perspectives in all aspects of their lives, across a variety of disciplines and contexts.
The Codekids Creative Computing curriculum is designed by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and is a collection of ideas, strategies, and activities for an introductory creative computing experience using Scratch. In this course, children will learn to create stories, bring animations to life, code musical instruments, design exciting games and control robots.
