How I Use It
I used it in my HS Technology course. They thought it childish, but they found it more than they bargined for. They complained about it, but they loved using the mario lesson plans that were on the scratch edu website.
My Take
I liked it and I liked the scratch edu community. I wish there were more lesson plans that also had the iste/common core standards that correlated. I used it for two years, but did not use this year.
