How I Use It
Students used this site to learn programming through drag and drop blocks. The blocks can be used as is or revised to build more complex programs. Older students can teach themselves the program through well built tutorials and helps.
My Take
Great site. The programming blocks can be revised which takes the language to a more advanced level. Students can share their programs to the site for others to see. There are millions of shared programs and studios that help students learn the program as well as get ideas for their own projects. Additional links and resources include a site for parents, a site for teachers (ScratchEd) and a site for children ages 5-7 (ScratchJr).
