The current lock-down means that digital literacy is more important than ever.
diversamente coding e-learning platform is ready and the partnership is now working on the contents which include multilingual educational materials (tutorials, videos, documents, links, articles and useful tips).
We are using Scratch to introduce coding to the target group – but what is Scratch?
Scratch is a programming language, developed by the MIT Media Lab and released in 2007. Scratch 3.0 is a great tool for introducing coding to all ages. Scratch can be used when developing various multimedia projects such as: video games, interactive storytelling, animations, and graphical artwork.
Scratch is particularly good for working with Deaf learners because it uses visual tools (graphic coding blocks) which represent commands. The learner simply snaps the blocks together in order to create various effects.
Scratch is a fun way to introduce learners to basic coding, and at the same time, playing to the visual strengths of Deaf learners.
Person-to-person activities are not currently possible but online, everything is possible! You can enrol and test our diversamente coding courses at https://diversamente-academy.eu/.
Currently, the courses are only available in English but follow us on Facebook or Instagram and you will be the first to know when German, Greek, Italian and Spanish go live.
