Programmers can create animated text on the computer for Internet-based audiences. Code is the language of programming and gives power to individuals to create using the computer. Students in grades 2-5 are learning to animate text using the program SCRATCH, which uses the type of code now known as “Blocky“. They are working on combining motion, color, font, and backgrounds to make an engaging visual presentation.
