Overview

Discover how you can transition learners from block to text-based programming

Block-based programming languages like Scratch make it simple to learn and teach programming. But once your students have mastered it, it’s time to move on to a text-based programming language such as Python. This online course will show you how.

You’ll discover how to transfer the programming and thinking skills learnt while using Scratch to Python. You’ll learn how to develop basic text-based programming skills, how to understand error messages and debug code.

The course will show you the power of text-based programming and give you the tools to support your students’ transition.
