The Infosys Foundation USA and its Pathfinders Online Institute are proud to partner with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to offer educators in grades 4-8 Programming Essentials with Scratch. This free course will help teachers build their confidence and knowledge of key programming concepts using Scratch. Most importantly, no prior programming experience is needed to participate and teachers will be given all of the resources needed to teach the fundamentals of programming to their students!
Throughout this six-part course, educators will learn important concepts such as variables, sequencing, selection and count-controlled iteration. In learning how to effectively teach programming, teachers will come away with a set of fun and innovative ways to bring computer science to their students.
