My journey began with phase one - Introduction to scratch programming of the assigned Scratch activities, I had to start by installing Scratch onto my computer as I have never used this program before and found it in the beginning to be very challenging and difficult to understand how the controls were to work. I was quick to begin experimenting with Scratch by following the directions outlined by the course lecturer in the course activities. When
beginning the journey with the program ‘Scratch’ it became apparent that it
clearly takes all of the essential programming constructs like sequencing,
conditional branching, control structures, data manipulations etc, and wraps
them in a very friendly, very easy to use environment that even the youngest
students can use with just a little knowledge.
