Scratch

Wow...I’ve been delinquent in my blog updates. So here’s finally something new! Our Upper School Librarian, Jane, tipped me off about Scratch, a free programming software developed at MIT that allows kids to create their own scripts that run simple animations. I’m going to look into this further to see if it could be useful in the classroom. What I find most exciting is that what gets created is someone’s original work....very important in an academic environment where we’re trying to avoid copy/paste disease. :)
