Pedagogy for Tomorrow

Presenter(s): Lilli Meloche (CA)

Summary: The excitement in learning that the world of Scratch brings to my grade 4 class is awe-inspiring. This presentation shows that Scratch facilitates personalized learning in math, science, history, biology, reading, writing, and even literature studies. The key component to empowering my students is, trusting them to find their passion and trusting Scratch to respond to and validate each student. My presentation will include samples of student work along with ‘unpacking’ the curriculum in these areas. The flexibility of Scratch to be used by all abilities aligns well with my teaching philosophy of personalized inquiry.
