Scratch in Teacher Education in Iceland

Presenter(s): Salvor Gissurardottir (IS)

Summary: This paper discusses ways how Scratch could be introduced into teacher education. From 2012 to 2014 Scratch has been used to introduce first year teacher education classes in Iceland to coding and programming, but also as an environment to collaborate with others and remix and tinker and prepare for the environment of tomorrow. The aim is to prepare future teachers who can be agents of change.
