How I Use It
I would introduce Scratch Jr to young students to help them get a basic understanding of computer programming.
My Take
My overall opinion of this program as a teaching tool is positive. I love that the children have the opportunity to create their own program, watch what happens, make changes and play around with it. We only tried out Scratch Jr. and that would be a perfect tool for introducing young children to computer programming.
