How I Use It
I use Scratch with upper elementary and middle schoolers - beginning with structured activities and then having them graduate to independent projects. We keep a gallery of student work to inspire students.
My Take
I love this. In the beginning, the commands can be a bit overwhelming for new users and version changes have caused some lessons to use commands that have different names.
