Construct, Program, Design: Exploring Scratch From
the Perspective of Computational Thinking and Cognition

Scratch is a programming environment that makes it easy to create
interactive media, such as games, stories, and simulations -- and share
those creations online. With an extensive online community of over 730,000
registered members and over 250,000 unique contributors to the vast online
resource of projects to share and explore, Scratch, and its online
community, is continuing to grow and thrive as programming and designing
become more social.

Simultaneously, Scratch is also increasing the amount of exposure younger
children have to programming. How can this increased exposure to Scratch
lead to improvements in learning of core computing concepts? How is Scratch
being used to extend and explore Computational Thinking (CT)? What,
exactly, is CT and how can Scratch support the various skills associated
with CT?

This presentation will provide a general overview of Scratch; explore some
of the nascent ideas associated with Computational Thinking; and present
findings from Cameron's research with the Institute for Learning
Technologies at Teachers College, Columbia University on using Scratch to
develop particular CT skills among young learners. He will also share some
insights into his newest project related to developing reading and writing
skills with computer code with Scratch, called Code Literacy.

About Cameron L. Fadjo:
Cameron L. Fadjo is a PhD student in Cognitive Studies in Education and a
Research Associate with the Institute for Learning Technologies, both at
Teachers College, Columbia University. He holds two master’s degrees, one
in Instructional Technology and Media and the other in Educational
Psychology: Cognitive, Behavioral, and Developmental Analysis, from
Teachers College, Columbia University and a B.M. in Music Synthesis from
Berklee College of Music. He is currently the Project Leader of the iWorld
(Imaginary World) project which examines the use of grounded embodied
cognition and Imaginary World Construction to teach abstract mathematical
and computational concepts and the DM-S3 (Direct Manipulation of Stories,
Systems, and Symbols) project which examines how gestural interfaces can be
used to improve understanding of novel terminology and complex systems.
His research interests include action, perception, and imagery, in
particular grounded embodied cognition, gestures and Imaginary Worlds, and
their implementation through technology to improve learning, memory, and
understanding of abstract concepts and/or complex systems.

Meeting Location:
Please note that this meeting will be held at P.S. 9 Sarah Anderson
which is on West 84th Street and Columbus Avenue, and not at IBM.

Swag (Give Away):
During/after the meeting... unusually terrific swag may be given
away.

Stammtisch:
After the meeting ... You may wish to join up with other NYLUGgers
for drinks and pub food. This month we'll be over at House of Brews
(302 West 51st St. - 8th Ave), but we are also evaluating other
options for the future and welcome your suggestions.

Directions from IBM: http://goo.gl/VUdO1
Coding Workshops/Hacking Society:
This is a group of people that wants to learn about and work on coding
in Python, Smalltalk, Ruby, C++, LaTeX, and other languages, and hack on code.
There will also be help given for those who wish to install Linux for the
first time.
Hardware hacking projects are also welcome.
Sometimes they go out to eat afterward.

Bring something to show off and discuss!

The workshops meet every other Tuesday, at the NY Public Library,
Hudson Park Branch. 66 Leroy St. NY NY from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Next meetings are May 10, and May 24.
See the calendar at: http://nylug.org/hackcalendar

version of this announcement, our archives, and a lot of other good
stuff.
