    High school English

      I was wondering if it is possible to integrate coding and computational thinking into the high school English classroom. In the Ontario curriculum there is a strand for Media Studies/literacy and I think giving students these tools in a required course can help them navigate their technology driven world far into their future.

          Absolutely! You can use Scratch to create animated short stories, complete with audio. You can also use tech toys like a Makey-Makey to create an interactive storybook presentation.

           

          If you think of coding as a series of IF/THEN statements and apply that thinking to the progression of a "Choose Your Own Adventure" type of story, your students can definitely combine English and Coding.

           

          This is an HTML project from a few years ago where a student coded a story into a website: Stranded
