How Students Can Create New Ways To Visualize Data Using Scratch
Listen and learn : Snapshot
Snapshots are a pairing of two 20 minute presentations followed by a 5 minute Q & A.
This is presentation 2 of 2, scroll down to see more details.

|Participant accounts, software and other materials:||We will provide the links|
|Topic:||Computer science & computational thinking|
|Subject area:||Computer science, STEM/STEAM|
|ISTE Standards:||For Students:
Participants will be able to replicate this project in any educational environments. Likewise, many didactic sequences can be created, implemented and evaluated to ensure the integration of the tool to the exploration of relevant phenomena in a critical, reflective and significant way.
Thinking about this integration, teachers can selected many themes, databases, and examples of possible representations for use in the classroom. However, the tool have enough openness to test many other ideas.
The main tool will be a Scratch add-on that will be shared with the participants.
Here we have one example of lesson plan:
For all earthquakes in the last 100 years:
• Depth of occurrence
• Position (latitude and longitude)
• Day of occurrence
Examples of aspects that can be explored:
• Relationship between the place of occurrence of earthquakes and the limits of tectonic plates
• Relationship between magnitude and depth of earthquakes
• Relationship between magnitude, depth and place of occurrence (including oceanic and continental plates)
Alignment with BNCC
(EF07CI15) Interpret natural phenomena (such as volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis) and justify the rare occurrence of these phenomena in Brazil, based on the model of tectonic plates.
(EF07CI16) Justify the shape of the Brazilian and African coasts based on the theory of drift of the continents.
We will present many examples of our project and student's success.
The content will be about the tool itself and many practical applications.
The time spent will be suitable for the selected type of presentation. It can be a snapshot, a lecture or a poster.
Participants can follow the presentation using their laptops or portable devices. In the beginning we will share the tool and they will be able to understand and learn as we present the projects developed with our students.
The project is based on a PHD thesis and the project developed at Escola Bosque
