General
How I Use It
I have used scratch for as long as I can remember. A great introduction to the metaphors and systems of becoming a computer programmer. Powerful and accessible built around a great social community of learners.
My Take
Perhaps my favorite teaching (or should I say learning) tool in the computer lab. Hits on so many important skills and is remarkably rewarding.
