How I Use It
I use this product at the lowest grades to introduce programming and getting students to embrace technology. The students love to program using scratch. The one suggestion for Scratch is to make it a lesson unit vs. plan. If you try to cram all the tools of scratch into one lesson, the students will become disengaged and lose interest quickly.
My Take
Scratch is a great program for getting the most reluctant learners into programming. Scratch is a fun, interactive program that allows students of all backgrounds to build games, lessons, and working mathematical tools all while learning to program.
