End of Semester Code Walk
After completion of the C.A.M.S. curriculum, students will have an opportunity to share their growth over time through a “portfolio” of accomplishments near the end of the semester. The “portfolio” will consist of sharing their Scratch projects completed in Modules 1-5.
Students will discuss their learning and accomplishments both verbally and in writing. Each student will have a Padlet account to share their five Scratch projects, from Modules 1-5. Parents, community members and peers will be invited to celebrate the success of our students during the code walk.
Throughout the C.A.M.S. experience, students will be assessed on the Career and Technical Education competencies that are embedded into the C.A.M.S. curriculum. They will demonstrate their knowledge through student design, collaborative work, reflective writing and 21st Century Learning Design strands.
Assessment will be ongoing through teacher observation, student sharing and collaborative work, to include student self-evaluation and cumulative knowledge construction.
Technology naturally differentiates and provides flexible learning paths so that diverse learning styles and needs are met. The C.A.M.S. modules are tiered with three levels; Scratcher (novice), Coder (intermediate) and Programmer (advanced) so that all students can be successful. Students will be held accountable at their own levels with opportunities to challenge themselves through the Scratch modules, self-evaluation and collaborative discussions with their peers.
Content IntegrationBy working through the five C.A.M.S. modules, content integration will be ongoing. Students will experience math concepts, reflective reading and writing skills, music and a variety of science skills. Information, Communication and Technology, ICT, use will be enhanced through the variety of learning experiences that the various subject areas provide.
