This is my presentation… about my summer experience.
Before moving to main topic, Let me introduce myself.
This is my favorite picture while I have been Holland last summer vacation. I love travelling.
I worked at Rarejob over 3 years as a web engineer. 3years ago, rarejob engineer used SVN repository, So then, My first work is in rarejob is triyng to build the environment of continuous integration and automatic deploy system with Jenkins, and capistrano.
Now that sometime I code, Sometime I review member’s code. ( we use gitLab)
Additional, I love beer. All Philippine office engineers know about me, They say Yashiro-san Because I was known as a heavy beer drunker.
And, I love IoT. So I transferred from a landline phone to be smaller one using Raspberry Pi. My dreams is living a house which has wide garden with Shiba-inu.
OK then this is main topic is my summer experience in elementally school. This is HOUR Of CODE page in facebook, it is the movement which promotes programming and Science to everyone in the world. They recruit volunteer to teach programming to children at school or another event. So I joined this event last week. Is’s my report.
Do you know SCRATCH? Yes, It is just game, maybe not programming. Last week A univercity student and I went to Toshima- minami elementary school, and prepare to teach about SCRATCH.
Because of summer season, from grade 1th – 5th students entered a classroom, so we had introduction of SCRATCH. . We provide tablet to students, so they have to solve the question on their own thinking.
Actually, I dont like children so much. But I like teaching and sharing mind with someone when they want to know how to solve problem. Quiz? Game? Yes Acutllay I like to help someone who want to solve something.
They have 60 minitus to solve the Game with SCRATCH. I think it is a long time for them.
Contrary to my anticipation..
All I told …. Is How about this parts? If you put this block on the workspace, what happen? So Lets set the block and execute it!
So, Just Navigating.
They are accustomed to use tablet than expected. So they may use some devices like a tablet and a smartphone with parents. Even grade 1th students, they could tap, and swipe much smoothly. When we encountered new thing, we sometime feel strong resistance to them. They don’t have any bias.
So this is my experience in this summer.
It will make me more powerful when I try to challenge new thing and teach something to others. Important thing is that teaching is not needed. They want to know the way to solve on their own.
I can help them. But the one who can reach the goal is not me.
Thank you for your listening my presentation. Thank you so much!

TTT #4 Yashiro Anazawa
1. web engineer ( over 10 years) PHP, Ruby, Java etc..
2. Working for three years in Rarejob
3. No Life No Beer :)
4. Love drinking, travelling, Shiba-inu. and IoT.
I tried to join to HOUR Of CODE
1. Some public elementary schools open for students who want to learn code.
2. From grade 1 to 5 ( In my case)
3. Some volunteers can join the schools recruiting assistance volunteers.
4. Volunteers got information from HOUR of CODE with some documents in advance.
5. Then they go to elementary school designated by HOUR Of CODE.
My roles were..
1. Volunteers navigate students how to use the site of SCRATCH page.
2. Sample : The purpose is moving a bird to goal point from start point.
3. Step by step, the level got harder. ( level 1 -> 20).
if/else/while blocks are located on the work space.
So students have built parts to move the bird with volunteers.
I afraid that..
1.They will be boring this game.
2.They are not able to reach final level.
1. They really enjoyed coding not only boys but also girls as well.
2. Once they understood how to manage, they could solve the
game on their own.
3. Some students could reach final level 20.
My experience is..
1. At first they tried to set the parts randomly.
2. Students begin to think logically. How …? Why…?
3. If block is easy to understand for students. While block is
harder than ‘if’.
4. What volunteers should do is not teaching.
