Summer Online Program for Children
Digital Story Creation Launch for Summer 2020 – Consumers to Creators
One of the fundamentals of keeping children engaged and wanting to learn to use technology is when they can create the kind of content they consume on a regular basis. Like when they Code an Animation Story or create a Game, they will find it very relatable and enjoyable and in this process learn logic building, programming, creative and computational thinking. They will find it rewarding when they see their own content on the internet.
With this premise, the Objective of the Summer 2020 Program is to Encourage children to build Digital Stories using the Scratch Platform from their own homes teaming up with their friends.
Phases of Story-making.
