October 6th Webinar – Creative Computing: Getting Started with Scratch
Increasingly, educators are recognizing that people learn best when they are actively engaged in exploring, experimenting, and expressing themselves. In other words, it is hard to beat creativity as a method for learning.
Scratch is a very accessible programming language that makes it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art. Scratch is appropriate across all content areas, age levels, and ability levels.
Participants of this webinar will be introduced to Scratch and discuss creative computing, a design-based learning approach. Many resources and next steps will be shared as well. Join us on October 6th at 3:15 or 7:15 for an hour of fun and creativity.
As promised, here are a few links and resources from the Scratch webinar on October 6th. In no particular order:
