Scratch to Python: Moving from Block to Textbased Programming

Raspberry Pi Foundation,, --- , Prof. Marc Scott 0.0 ( Reviews) Students Enrolled

Updated On 02 Feb, 19

Overview

Learn how to apply the thinking and programming skills you've learnt in Scratch to text-based programming languages like Python.

Course Description

Discover how you can transition from block to text-based programming

Block-based programming languages like Scratch make it simple to learn and teach programming. But once you and your students have mastered it, it’s time to move on to a text-based programming language such as Python. This online course will show you how.

You’ll discover how to transfer the programming and thinking skills you learnt while using Scratch to Python. You’ll develop basic text-based programming skills, learning how to understand error messages and debug code.

The course will show you the power of text-based programming and give you the tools to support your students’ transition too.

Scratch to Python is designed for primary or K-5 teachers and volunteers. If you don’t have any experience of programming, we recommend you take Teaching Programming in Primary Schools first, to learn the basics of block-based programming in Scratch.
