Computing At School ‘Switched On’ Magazine

My article for the Computing At School magazine ‘Switched ON’ has just been published in the Autumn edition.CASMag

The article deals with differentiation in Scratch programming.  My bit’s on page 10, and I’d heartily recommend reading the rest of the magazine too. Here’s the download link: Switched On Autumn 14

I have now finished resourcing two Schemes of Work using the 4 step differentiation technique outlined in the article.  Follow the links below for to grab a copy from Dropbox.  I’m just finishing off running the Y8 unit and am very happy with the progress of my learners – using variables,  selection and loops in Scratch and debugging & discussing how their programs work with key terms.  Any feedback or suggestions for improvement are more than welcome.  Please use the resources under a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution, non-commercial, share alike license.

Y8 – Virtual pet in Scratch (based on a project by Marc Scott – @coding2learn)
